In the Mopar Blog Garage: 1972 Chrysler Town & Country Wagon

These pics are from the day we first picked up the car last month. I was hoping to get a better photo shoot in before the end of the year, but it looks like it’s not gonna happen. So here it is, all 18.7 feet of C-barge goodness.

This is an all-original one owner car with just 90,000 miles on the odometer. This is the 9-passenger model with a rear-facing third row bench seat, and is fairly loaded, with 440 power. One resource tells me that there were 14,116 Town & Country wagons produced in 1972, though not many are left. When is the last time you saw one on the road or at a show?

How cool is this? Well, John Lennon owned one. Check out the 1972 Chrysler station wagon dealership data book and Hemmings has a very good overview on the model. Stay tuned, though, we will have more on this big C monster in the New Year! More pics after the jump!
