Not too much damage. So lovers of classic Chryslers can rest easy.

Why is this listed as a '47 rather than a '46 to '48?

The first time I saw this film, I said aloud: "Oh no" when she backed the car down the embankment.

I made more screenshots of the car. What conficts me is that the shots of the dashboard look like a '49. Old car connaisseurs pls help me.

This is one of my all-time favorite car movies.

Fortunately, this is the only "mistreatment" scene of a car in the entire movie and it appeared it was handled in such a way that the Chrysler suffered little if any actual damage.

I actually went on the net to see that the dashboard shown in the movie is one of a 1950 Windsor/New Yorker instead of a 46-49. Or I think it is. In the film, it doesn't have the complete round horn ring, the ignition keyhole is located on the left of the steering wheel, it's missing the "jukebox" like radio and it has a round speedometer instead of the rectangular one. Commander 57, can you or someone else confirm this? Here's a link of a 1950 Windsor with the dashboard exactly like the one in the film. I took a snapshot of a 1950 Windsor video on YouTube.

1948 Chrysler Windsor dash:

You're right. The movie car dash is different.

Seems odd to locate and use a completely different Chrysler for the dash shot. Why not just use the same car's dash?

Thanks, Sandie. I'll remember next time.

Commander 57, I don't know. Maybe they needed extra shots of the interior after production wrapped and the '46 wasn't available anymore... or maybe they didn't want to show the complex-looking radio. Or maybe the interior of the '46 was not in top shape, so they found a '50... Interesting enough, I think the interior shots with Miss Daisy's face showing are the ones with the '46. The steering wheel is of a different color than the one with the gear changing shots.

Interesting thoughts.
Although on the condition point, I very much doubt a car so immaculate on the outside would be poor on the inside.

There was NOT any noticeable damage at all, when I saw this very car in the street a few years ago...

This photo was taken on Summer Street (@ Kingston St) in downtown Boston, Massachusetts circa 2010.
The front plate reads: "Appeared in film Driving Miss Daisy".
