For Sale: 1968 Chrysler New Yorker in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is happy to offer the highly customized 1968 Chrysler New Yorker, aptly named "1 BADD 1", that was featured in the Jan 1990 edition of Mopar Magazine! This New Yorker is a 440CID powered custom from years gone by! Sporting a 4.25" front/3" rear roof chop, shaved handles (with keyfob poppers) & completely lowered custom suspension designed by Mike Helm Racing that utilizes both chopped front springs, as well as 10" Koni coil-overs in the rear, to give it that aggressive, low slung, stance that you see. Finished in a "Slap You In The Mouth" Pink, layed down by Jesse Warren, & some wild 80's mechanical style graphics & pinstriping, applied by Jungle Jeff Graphics back in 1987, this car SCREAMS 1980's! The power is supplied by Chrysler's big-block 440CID V/8 engine belting out a more than adequate 360hp in its sophomore offering from the factory, and an even more important 470 lb-ft of torque, for great acceleration at any time for a vehicle this size. These New Yorkers are simply massive inside, with room for six corn-fed adult Americans, with a trunk sufficient for luggage for that many people to take a long road trip. This V/8 is backed up with the rightly famous Torqueflite 727 automatic, noted then and now as one of the finest automatics ever built. Massive all-new Budd power assisted front disc brakes were a new option shared with Dodge and Plymouth starting in 1965, and which were competitive with Ford's new front disc brakes also introduced a full two years ahead of GM's full-sized cars. These New Yorkers are simply massive inside, with room for six corn-fed adult Americans and then some, and a completely custom-finished trunk sufficient for luggage for at least that many to take a long road trip! Cold A/C, AM/FM/Cassette, power steering, aftermarket gauges & a set of aluminum alloy wheels round out the options. If you are wanting a quick trip down memory lane, or are just looking to stand out in a crowd, there is little doubt that this Chrysler will definitely get you noticed!
