Description

For its Silver Anniversary in 1950 Chrysler promised restyling that would be the finest in the new car field. The result of this facelift was minor changes to its “box-on-box” shape. On the outside this meant larger rear fenders with flush-mounted taillights and larger rear windows. The inside featured a “Safety-Cushioned” dashboard and an ignition-key starter replacing the old push-button one. Power was provided by a 250.6 cid inline 6, F-head engine capable of producing 116 horsepower. The stock transmission was now a fluid drive “semi-automatic” 3 speed transmissions know as the “Prestomatic”. There were 78,199 of these 4 door sedans produced in 1950 at a list price of $2329.
