😎1977 Chrysler Town & Country😎

This faux-panelled behemoth, based on the Chrysler New Yorker, weighs in at over 5,000 pounds! Model year 1977 was the last year the Town & Country name was used on a full-size conventional station wagon. After that, it was the LeBaron, then the ubiquitous K-car and then… The Van.

Its de-tuned 440 cubic-inch (7.2-litre) V8 mated to a three-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission produces a paltry 195 horsepower. In proper tune, the big station wagon accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in a sleepy 14.2 seconds.

The land yacht will devour 21.9 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres. That’s 12.9 miles per gallon. But hey, it’s built like a battle tank and can comfortably haul nine people. And wow, wouldn’t you love to pull up to the Country Club in this 1970s gem today?

This fine example has been spotted on the streets of Halifax for years…
