A Century of Cars: 41. Solido 1948 Chrysler Windsor
The Windsor was positioned above the
entry-level Royal from 1939 to 1950. With the demise of the Royal
for the 1951 model year the Windsor became Chrysler's price leader
through to 1960.
When the Windsor first came out in 1939 it was a junior model to the larger Chrysler New Yorker. It used independent front suspension, 11" brakes, and a X girder truss type frame. Production ended in January, 1942, as all automobile companies in the USA switched to war production. In 1946 the car was returned to production with few changes.
