The 1941-1942 Chrysler Windsor Town & Country was a significant step toward the modern station wagon and away from the boxy, woody model. Somewhat sedan-like in appearance, the Chrysler featured a streamlined steel roof and tailgate doors that opened like a clam shell via outboard hinges.

The design concept was floated by Chrysler Division general manager David Wallace, who was also noted for the "Superfinish" engine process. With Chrysler's L-head six and semi-automatic Fluid Drive, performance was leisurely, but fit, finish, and fittings were top-drawer.
