1941 CHRYSLER NEW YORKER IMPERIAL “SPECIAL 8”– Pre-War RARE ANTIQUE - PALM BEACH
This Gorgeous, Unbelievably Rare 1941 “Fluid Drive” classic NEW YORKER
is awesome! Wood trim around the windows, dash & kick panels are still looking pretty good, The Flathead
Spitfire -8- Cylinder engine runs great & seems to need absolutely nothing, the tires are in good shape, and the Interior is beautiful. No chips or cracks in any of the glass, Original Mother of Pearl Trim work & original hardware. There are however cracks in the mother of pearl trim work and some deterioration of the shine on the chrome, surely an easy fix. All original body and paint. ONLY has 27,896 Original Miles! This beautiful classic has been very well maintained and runs like a champ. NEW Alternator, NEW Air Conditioning Compressor (that’s right A/C!), records, and more. I could go on for hours about this car and it’s history, which has had 2 owners by the way, but why? The pictures say it all.
If you really do your homework, you’ll see that this car is extremely rare. Part of a very small batch run of "Special" sedans made pre-war. In fact, I have not been able to find another one like it anywhere in the world! Check for yourself. VIN# 6638046
Perfect to head your fleet of limousines or just add to your private collection!
