Artist's Description

1926 Chrysler Four
Mopar Auto Show, Cornwall, Ontario, Canada
July 2, 2011

Please take a minute to read the full description.

This beautiful old car was kind of modestly nestled in amongst all the other flashy models on display. All the tools and the owner’s manual were neatly arranged on a blanket beneath the front bumper and the owner had a framed written history to accompany everything.

Here’s what it says:

1926 Chrysler Four
Manufactured June 1925
Windsor, Ontario
List price $995.00

“This car was purchased by my Dad, Williard, in 1949, for $200.00, from Howe’s Garage in Gananoque for use on our farm to haul milk cans & fence posts.
As soon as we could reach the pedals, my brother Keith and I learned how to drive old “Tilly”. She was always ready for work, whether heading across plowed ground or setting off for the local swimming hole, extra passengers on her running boards.
As we moved to the muscle cars of the 60’s, “Tilly” was retired to the shed…. And just waiting for the next chapter in her life to begin.
The next phase of her journey began in 1969 with a new ash frame and from 1985 – 87 a complete professional restoration.
Since 1987 we have had the pleasure of travelling with “Tilly” to local & national meets & joining with friends old and new who share in the appreciation of these cars of a bygone era.
Thank you for your interest in my historic automobile.”
