Little Known Facts about the Chrysler Town & Country
- The Chrysler Town & Country has been around for around 73 years. It first came out as a station wagon. Later on, it was sold as a sedan, coupe, and convertible, until in 1989, the Town & Country was re-introduced as a luxury minivan, a rebadged version of the Dodge Caravan minivan. The nameplate still lives up until today.
- The earliest Town & Country model was released in 1941. It was the first woodie wagon equipped with an all-steel roof, the same roof used in a Chrysler Imperial 8-passenger sedan and limousine. The original woodie Town & Country was last produced in 1950.
- Car production ceased during World War II; less than 1,000 units were manufactured in 1941 and 1942. After the war, the nameplate survived.

Units produced were much larger compared to the prewar wagon. In 1951, the original woodie was replaced by a steel-bodied full-size rear wheel drive station wagon. Several versions of the station wagon came out until the eighth generation of the Town & Country. For the eighth-generation Town & Country, a convertible version was produced from 1983 to 1986.
