Equipment & Features


  • The Chrysler brand unveiled its new Model Q in 1928. It was their first foray into the more affordable motoring market that was then dominated by Ford and Chevrolet. The new car changed market expectations as it was equipped with many features associated with more expensive machinery. The Chrysler prefix was later dropped and the model was a sales success. 

  • The Australian market cars featured a Detroit-built chassis that was then shipped to Adelaide where the bodies were fitted by The Holden Motor Bodies Company, making them an important part of Australian automotive history. There are understood to be just 10 remaining on the country’s roads.  

  • The specification includes a wooden frame with metal over-body construction, a full force lubricated engine with oil filter, rubber engine mounts, slim chrome radiator grille, bowl headlights, beaded edge swooping mudguards, a sector leading comfortable interior and four-wheel internal hydraulic brakes. 

  • This Chrysler-Plymouth Model Q Tourer presents smartly with light blue coachwork and navy blue wheel arches and running boards, complemented by a two-tone grey leather interior. 

  • It rides on 20-inch wooden spoked wheels, shod with Lucas tyres. 

  • This example benefits from the fitment of two handy USB ports, indicators, an electric fuel pump and a period luggage trunk.

This includes information on how to source, repair and buy components, a directory of useful contacts, system diagrams and maintenance schedules with instructions.
