WPC Club notes concerning 1949 Chryslers & Imperials

Imperial Home Page -> Imperials by Year -> 1949 -> WPC Club Notes

From Tony Lindsey:

The following are a few skimpy notes that I made in 1991 while indexing some back-issues of the WPC NEWS, the monthly newsmagazine of the WPC (Walter P. Chrysler) Club, which is the largest Chrysler-Products club in the world. I strongly recommend that all Imperial owners belong to this club, for the sake of the classified ads and the club events. Back-issues may still be purchased for a small fee, and they are worth it. I particularly recommend buying any issues that mention "cover story" in the notes below. They will give you information about your car that you NEVER imagined was available.

There are 95 1949 Chryslers listed in the 1989 WPC Club roster.
