All Original: 1976 Chrysler Town & Country Station Wagon

The owner of this Chrysler Town & Country refers to it as a survivor. Given the fact that it still sports its original paint, interior trim, engine, and transmission, that seems like a fair description. It is located in Blue Springs, Missouri, and if you would like a family wagon that is something just a bit different to your average people-mover or SUV, then you will find the Chrysler listed for sale here on eBay.

The Harvest Gold paint on the Chrysler presents really nicely. There are a few minor chips and dings, but the owner is of the opinion that the dings should be able to be removed by a paint-less dent removal expert. I also like the chrome roof-rack and am always impressed by the sheer size of these wagons. The owner says that he has used the Chrysler as a family vacation vehicle on a number of occasions and that it has served this purpose well. The sheer size of the wagon certainly means that you should be able to pack plenty of holiday essentials on board.

The interior looks about as clean and spacious as you could hope for. The interior trim is in good condition, and comfort is not left wanting. While you have manual windows and locks, you do get a six-way power driver’s seat, air conditioning, and an upgraded aftermarket CD player. The third-row seat looks to be in good condition, and the A/C compressor has recently been upgraded.

There are no shots of the engine, but we know that the original 400ci V8 was rebuilt around 10-years-ago, and has only covered about 6,000 miles since. It was a pretty thorough rebuild, and a number of upgrades to intake, carburetor, and other ancillary items were performed to improve performance. The car is also fitted with power steering, power brakes, and a rear air load-leveler.

This generation of Town & Country Wagon represented the “last hurrah” for Chrysler with the full-sized premium station wagon. At the end of 1977, the Town & Country was replaced, with the new model being built on the far smaller M-Platform. This Chrysler is close to representing the last of the breed, and they have become increasingly popular as classics over the past few years. At the time of writing, bidding has reached $4,550, but the reserve has not been met. There is also a BIN option of $7,500, and it wouldn’t surprise me if someone exercised that option.

    I like it! Thankfully, the owner removed
    that god-awful Lean Burn carb setup
    that came standard on these cars.
    The paint shows well for a 40+ year old
    car, but the Dinoc wood decals are missing from the sides and tailgate even
    though the chrome trim that would surround that decal trim is present. No
    matter, I wouldn’t kick it out of my carport. But I can just hear Mom and Sis
    saying “No-ahhh!” to this one as big cars
    make them nervous. Nice wagon, would
    love to own the real thing, but a portrait
    will have to do.

    I’d hate to see what this beauty could do to a ten year old Corolla/Civic

      The Corolla/Civic would be the Chrysler’s crumple zone.

    Tough choice between this or the recent Olds wagon.

    The Mopar wagon is the 747 jumbo jet at the tail end of the fuselage era…

    Love it…barf bags for the 3rd row.

    Although you could carry a tremendous amount of stuff in the back, you had to be aware of the very long back overhang, and watch the driveway entrances/exits so as not to bottom out, the air suspension would help if it works. Neighbor had one and thought he should put little wheels under the read bumper to avoid damage, like drag racers had.

      License plates were usually bent at the bottom from scraping a driveway on all brands of these big wagons

    Several really curious things about this wagon. First is the typically odd combination of options present on this car. Six way power front seat, but no power windows, no power locks, a fixed, non-tilt steering wheel, no woodgrain on the sides, and on and on. But what’s REALLY interesting about this is that the serial number identifies it as a SIX passenger wagon (CP45) but yet it has nine passenger seating which would have made it a CP46. Through the mid seventies Chrysler’s left hand really didn’t know what the right hand was doing most of the time and this car is a textbook example of that.

    A/C, power seat but manual windows and locks. Sure sounds like the 1970’s,
