The Chrysler Windsor was a full-sized car built by the Chrysler Corporation of Highland Park, Michigan (United States) during the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. The final Chrysler Windsor as known to Americans was produced in 1961, and for two years only, 1965 and 1966, the Chrysler Corporation released a Windsor model for Canada, which for all intents and purposes was equivalent to the Newport in the United States for those years.

The Windsor was positioned above the entry level Royal from 1946 to 1950. With the demise of the Royal for the 1951 model year the Windsor became Chrysler's price leader through to 1960. For the 1961 model year the Chrysler Newport was made the marque's price leader with the Windsor positioned one level above the Newport. Chrysler replaced the Windsor name in 1962 with the introduction of the non-lettered series Chrysler 300.[1]
