The Beautiful Chrysler
The radio no longer works, most likely it needs a tube. The high beam switch doesn't work.
It loves to stall and leave you stranded. It will start again after it's cooled down. Unfortunately there aren't any mechanics left who worked on these when new.
The car is a 5 window coupe. I got it from the 2nd owner who purchased it in 1956 as a second car. He ended up not driving it; only taking it out of the garage once a year and driving around the field behind his house.
I bought the car in 1992 and did the normal maintenance stuff, brakes, tune up, etc. The ride is unusual but very comfortable. The angle of the gas pedal puts a strain on your ankle on long drives.
It keeps up with modern traffic on the highway, but you have to obey the posted speed limit on turns. No turn signals means using your arm. The heater works well on cool fall days.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
