1961 Chrysler New Yorker Silverline Sedan
In the early 1960s the Chrysler New Yorker was the top of the line luxury model for Chrysler and this 1961 sedan is an exceptional example with low mileage and matching numbers. This 4-door sedan is a remarkably original car.
The swept back fins and the impressive grill mark this car as important in the history of American automotive design. The upswept fins represents a final example Virgil Exner's dramatic auto designs at Chrysler. These cars are popular today with collectors precisely because of these fins.
To the owner's knowledge this New Yorker has only 26,921 actual miles. It has never been repainted but retains near flawless black paint. The interior with black and grey cloth is immaculate.
The chrome trim on this Chrysler is dramatic and typical of the era. According to the owner the chrome trim pieces have gold backing
Under the hood is a unique 413 cu. in. V-8 with 350 h.p. with the original 4-barrel carburetor. Something you don't see on many automobiles, an unusual Chrysler feature, the three speed automatic transmission is operated using push buttons mounted on the dash. This New Yorker also features power steering and power brakes.
As a piece of Americana this Chrysler New Yorker is a great parade car and has even been awarded a class award at Hershey. The owner describes this car as a very comfortable ride and he says a beautiful driving automobile.
The car's excellent condition is because it was on exhibit at the famous Shelburne, Vermont museum for 17 years. So this is an opportunity to own a museum quality classic.
