Barn Find Wagon! 1966 Chrysler Town and Country

Wagons are hot! Add to that: one owner + original paint + 68K miles + barn find and you’ve got the recipe for an amazing car. This one is a 1966 Chrysler Town & Country and can be found here on Craigslist with an asking price of $8,500. Located in York, Pennsylvania, the car was reportedly sold new in Maryland, so it has probably spent its whole life on the East Coast. The 383 engine hasn’t run since 1976 and there isn’t any information in the ad why it was parked when it was only ten years old. Since it was pulled from the barn, it was cleaned up and looks amazing. Check it out below! Thanks to Barn Finds reader local_sheriff for the tip on this great wagon!

The dash really cleaned up well! The gauge cluster is well laid out and when combined with the hump over the speedometer, it really looks great. The seats have a few tears in them, but overall, the interior isn’t bad at all. This is a 9 passenger wagon and the rear seats fold down which probably makes enough room for a full sheet of plywood in the back!

As mentioned before, the car has been pulled from the barn and cleaned up. I’m glad they took some photos of it in its resting spot. I hate a good barn find story without any photos of the car in the actual barn. The original paint looks amazing and this car is in really good condition. It says that there is a bit of rust near the fender skirts on both sides and near the passenger side spare tire area. I think this would be a great candidate for a driver-quality car as-is or a light restoration. What do you think?

    I had one in 1973 or so. Most fun shopping for a used car I ever had. Criteria; full size, fake wood, roof rack. New car dealers had them at the back of the lot. The would had me 2 or 3 sets of keys, and tell me to go find them. One Dodge dealer had 2 red and black 1985 Dodge’s One was black over red and one was red over black. $550 for both, but I had to take both.
    I bought a beige 1966 Chrysler for $330. I kept in a rental garage, where the doors almost closed due to length. It was a beater with a heater for crappy Winter days and as a substitute for a truck. I traded it , sight unseen, on a 1974 Fiat 124, for 5 cents a pound.
    Most beautiful dash ever.

    I’m feeling deja vu all over again.

    Or maybe it’s vuja de – the feeling that none of this has ever happened before. What movie was that from?

    This is a stunning wagon. Very imposing styling and general presence. The 70s Mopar wheels and blackwalls are a mistake though. They give it that ultra low dollar project car appearance. They look great on the cars they’re supposed to be on. Not this one.

    It needs whitewalls and hubcaps. There, I’ve said it. Go ahead and fight me.

      Marty. I want to fight you. Whitewalls have no reason for existence. None. How many cars come with them now? They suck just like automatic transmissions do.

        Whitewall tires should not exist? Wow what an ignorant state ment. Every vehicle I own with the exception of my Dodge charger haswhitewals. Whitewall tires are americana a fifties car without them looks like crap. Just because your one of these people who think old cars and modern ghetto wheels look good thats kust your bad taste. Im sticking with class originality and American culture…i think blackwall tires should not exist it makes a car look old and cheap.

        It’s all about the car they’re on. If I’m restoring a Hellcat Challenger 20 years from now and wanted to put whitewalls on it, your ire would be most understandable.

        I see people here in Mexico putting white walls on their S-10 Blazers with the factory rally wheels.

        I can’t for the life of me figure out why they would spend the extra money to make their truck look like garbage.

    To BF staff; don’t know who submitted this cool longroof but I should not be credited for it as I primarily focus on GM vehicles.

    Anyway it’s a hot wagon indeed and being a Chrysler it must have been an impressive barge when new. Very cool find that will be an unusual cruiser in the hands of the right owner without too much work

    When I was in Cub Scouts my Den Mother got a new 1966 Ford Country Squire and her husband a new 1966 Chrysler Town and Country at the same time. We rode in both vehicles from time to time for scout camps and other activities. To us scouts the Ford wagon seemed superior, looked fresher, and road much better. I learned later that the Chrysler had leaf springs and the Ford coil springs. The Town and Country seemed antiquated. Many years later when visiting them to thank them for their guidance when I was a kid, her husband told me he had wished he brought 2 Ford wagons at that time vs the Town and Country.

    Putting wheels on a car that hasn’t run in decades doesn’t make it worth almost 10K.
