Extremely Rare! One of the earliest Chrysler cars known to exist! 1 of only 373 ever made. Powered by the carryover reliable Maxwell 4 cylinder power plant it was the alternative to the more expensive 6 cylinder car that took the automotive world by storm with its hydraulic brakes and stellar performance on the endurance track. An extremely intensive restoration of this rare Canadian model was undertaken with every body panel being removed and the entire wood frame being restructured and refitted. Every panel painstakingly refitted many times for exact fit and alignment. All wood has been refinished to expose the craftsmanship. Every part attended to carefully. Mechanically a complete nut and bolt restoration was performed with no expense spared. New tires mounted on rewooded artillery wheels with matching hardware. All trim nickel plated as per the factory. Interior and top were meticulously fitted and installed. A Haartz canvas topping with matching edge binding in maroon. Restored at a cost of in excess of $100,000, this rare example is ready to drive and enjoy or to Concours. Won Second in Class at the Concours D'Elegance Cobble Beach 2015.
