Whenever I spot something like this 1959 Chrysler Windsormaking its way into a car show/cruise night, I make a beeline over there to check it out before a crowd forms. Love these old family car survivors! The Windsor was the entry-level Chrysler, if you will, followed up the ladder by the Saratoga, New Yorker, and the 300E. Chrysler told us how their “…exclusive Torsion-AIRE Ride&hel

Took a ride to South Wales a short while back to check out this beautiful 1959 Chrysler Windsor, owned by RealRide readers Pete & Bonnie Mistretta. Over the years it’s been a real champion, winning two Best of Show awards. The Windsor, the brochure reminded us, was “…a blend of grace and economy that masters the miles with noble ease!” This one has a 383 cu. in. V-8 an
