This 1922 Chalmers (Chrysler) 35C Torpedo is an original American example, extensively restored in the USA about 15 years ago. The current owner acquired it 4 years ago in very good condition and used it for leisure with some maintenance work. The car has 17,600 miles on its 5-digit speedometer. To the owner's knowledge, this Chalmers is the only one running in Europe.


On the outside, this Chalmers 35C is in very good condition. The black paint looks very good and shows no major defects. The bodywork shows no deformation or corrosion. The headlights are in very good condition and functional.


The interior is in very good condition. The upholstery and padding show no marked wear. The on-board instrumentation is said to work properly. The manual canvas top is in excellent condition, with no tears or tarnishing. The car can accommodate 7 people thanks to its 2 folding seats.


The mechanics are in very good condition. The 3.7l inline 6-cylinder developed 45hp when it left the factory. The engine is described as working perfectly. A side valve adjustment and an oil change have been done. The spark plugs, the coil, the platinum screws and the leather belt (as in the old days) have been replaced. The engine compressions have been checked. The radiator has been reproduced as original in copper honeycomb (value 3.500€). The 3-speed manual gearbox is also perfectly functional.


The car has its 5 original rims in very good condition with new tires. The bar brakes work perfectly. The car is said to run and brake normally without making any abnormal noise.


The car currently has an American registration but will have a French collection registration at the time of the sale. The seller is a private individual located in Belgium at Ohain 1380 (South of Brussels) and accepts visits during the sale.

The seller wished to define a reserve price.
