1939 Chrysler Royal Saloon

This large, rare and impressive RHD Chrysler Saloon and has spent the past few years in the impressive classic car collection at the Riga Motor Museum in Latvia. The museum closed in 2013 for re-construction and opens again in 2015 with additional vehicles. The Chrysler has come out of the museum to make way for a replacement vehicle that was purchased from us. Recently, prior to coming over to the UK from Latvia, it was subject of a basic re-commissioning programme and then covered 300 faultless miles. Prior to its time in Latvia, the Chrysler was owned by a Professor in the Netherlands who carried out some improvements to include an interior re-trim and re-paint fifteen years ago.

The Chrysler will be UK registered shortly and we are therefore putting it through a UK MOT test. Once this has been done, we will acquire a UK registration mark and the car will be road legal. The Chrysler has come to us as a good, reliable starter and the car runs and drives superbly with a strong straight six engine holding very good oil pressure. Column gear changes are smooth and whilst the brakes need cleaning, the car pulls up very responsively. Steering feels very precise and the car handles very well.

We can confirm the body is incredibly sound with excellent straight panels and a superb, strong underside that has never required welding work. The paintwork is fifteen years old so we are considering carrying out some improvements as there are some scratches and surface imperfections. We are also pleased to report to no rust issues and whilst the paint has aged, it does have a good, deep shine. The chrome work is bright and of a good standard and the interior is very smart with excellent seats, door cards and headlining and the original dashboard and steering wheel are in lovely order.

This is a very rare, impressive vehicle and right hand drive models are becoming increasingly difficult to find. Please enquire for more details.
