CUSTOMER TRADES IN 1948 HONEYMOON CAR – Mr. Lennard M. Redlinger and his wife Sherry recently traded a 1948 Chrysler Winsor that they purchased new and took their honeymoon in for a new Plymouth Duster and lease Chryler Newport at Martin Motors, Nashville. When asked what prompted them to bring in the car, they replied that parts were getting scarce and any major repairs would require a shop manual which they did not have.
Mr. Redlinger, who bought the Chrysler new at Goetsch Irvin Chrysler Plymouth, Manhattan, Kan., claimed the no major repair work had been done to the engine in its 88,000-mile history. The Chrysler was their major transportation and carried them across the country several time until it was relieved in 1956 by a station wagon.
The Chrysler did not retire however, and was often called on to push their other cars that wouldn’t start on damp winter mornings. “It never failed to start right off,” said Mr. Redlinger.
When told of plans to fully restore the car, Mr. Redlinger was pleased and added, “It will make some owner very happy … It was a good car, one of the best I’ve owned.”
Lamar Roberts, sales manager at Martin Motors, delivers the Redlinger’s the keys to the new car.
