Description
 
Production of Chryslers range-topping New Yorker in postwar America began in January of 1946, and the straight-eight-powered car was both attractively priced and available in a variety of coupe, sedan and convertible body styles. All were attractive automobiles with pleasing proportions and Chryslers unique harmonica grille, but the open convertibles were particularly striking. Its smooth 323.5 ci L-head engine made 135 horsepower, and Chryslers hydraulically operated Fluid Drive came standard. The attractively designed New Yorker did not undergo major changes, and when this 1948 example was built only a slight change in the rear fender could distinguish it from a 1947 model. This very pretty 1948 Chrysler New Yorker Convertible is finished in black, an appropriate color for a prestigious New Yorker of this vintage, a black vinyl convertible top and a maroon leather interior with Highlander plaid cloth inserts. It also has full chrome hubcaps, whitewall tires and dual spotlights that are mounted on the windshield pillars. Featured in the New Yorkers eye-catching, Art Deco-inspired dashboard are a clock, radio, and controls for the Fluid Drive transmission. The paint, chrome and interior are strong, and this would make a beautiful, comfortable tour vehicle or casual weekend car for top-down motoring. A solid and very pretty example of a highly prized early postwar American convertible, this 1948 Chrysler New Yorker Convertible is an ideal car to be both enjoyed and admired.
