Judged to be the most jet-age wagon among those displayed was John and Lynne Cote’s 1961 Chrysler Town and Country station wagon. The Cotes’ car has been featured in OCW, and the Cotes are regular contributors to the Old Cars annual calendar. Their wagon is one of 760 built and was special-ordered for Arthur Knorr, Broadway producer for the Miss America, Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants. The loaded wagon includes dual air conditioning, Sure-Grip differential, power windows, power door locks, power seats and the 413-cid V-8 fitted with dual carburetors with 300-style cross-ram intake manifolds. The car also has special Goodyear Captive-Air tires.
