  • Description
In 1941 Chrysler offered a wide range of power and trim choices ranging from $1000 to $3000 with the New Yorker being at the top of the line. At this time Chryslers products were of excellent quality and design with beautiful cloisonne emblems and bakelite interior details.  
The great performance and reliability of Chrysler's straight eight engines added to the marque's appeal and in this year, 1941, Chrysler re-named the eight cylinder line the "Spitfire 8". With model names like Royal, Windsor and Highlander, Spitfire was an allusion to the bravery and strength of the Royal Air Force's Supermarine Spitfires then fighting the Battle of Britain. 
 
Offered here is a wonderful and rare 1941 Chrysler New Yorker convertible coupe that is just out of a long time ownership. Finished in tan paired with a new black canvas convertible top and the incredibly striking optional Highlander interior. The Spitfire straight eight engine runs very well and the fluid drive 3 speed transmission shifts as it should. The power top works very nicely as well. It wears an older paint job, but it really shows well like a perfectly aged bottle of wine. In terms of looks, this car is especially striking because of its long nose and low split windscreen which really gives it a low sleek look. If you are looking for a great eight cylinder American convertible of the prewar era, this car certainly should be considered. Contact us for more information!
Asking: $38,500
