UPDATE! CAR IS NO LONGER FOR SALE.....Beautiful example of a much cherished Dodge Saloon with the famous 'Fluid Drive' 3 speed which made for effortless driving. Coupled to a 3.8 litre V6 engine which gave it the power it needed. This car is in fantastic condition having had a restoration in the late 90's in Canada where it came from and where it spent most of its life until coming to Ireland in 2004 and where it continued to be pampered by never being left outside once hence the complete absence of rust. The car is in its original cream paint called 'Panama Sand' which sums it up when you see it in the flesh.
One of the outstanding features on the car are it's double 'Suicide Doors' which would make many a Rolls Royce wedding car driver green with envy as if ever a car was made for weddings then it has to be this one! The space in the rear has to be seen to be believed.

Chrysler Introduces Fluid Drive Transmissions 1940
See Chrysler's on the road demonstrating Fluid Drive.
According to Wikipedia. Fluid Drive is the trademarked name that Chrysler
Corporation assigned to a transmission driveline combination offered from
1939 through 1953 in Chryslers, 1940 through 1953 in DeSotos, and from 1941
through 1954 in Dodge models. The fluid drive element was a hydraulic
coupling inserted in place of the flywheel, and performed the same function
as a modern torque converter, only without torque multiplication. A
conventional clutch and three-speed or four-speed manual transmission was
installed behind the fluid coupling, although a semi-automatic was optional
from 1941 for Chrysler and DeSoto and from 1949 for Dodge.
