  • Description

First introduced in 1938 as the 'New York Special', the stylish New Yorker was based on Chrysler's up-market Imperial and used the latter's sidevalve straight-eight engine. In Chrysler nomenclature 'New Yorker' signified luxury, these models being distinguished by high quality interior trim and an occasionally adventurous choice of upholstery materials including Scottish tartan (on the New Yorker Highlander). Production of the New Yorker began in January of 1946 and was Chrysler's top-of-the-range model. It was offered in a variety of body styles including coupes, sedans, and convertibles - including the wood-clad Town & Country. The New Yorker was reasonably priced, beginning at $1,825 for the three-passenger coupe up to $2,725 for the Town & Country convertible coupe. Equipped with an independent front suspension and a solid axle in the rear. Hydraulic drums provided the stopping power and the 323.5 cubic-inch L-head straight-eight providing the 'going' power. The engine offered 135 horsepower and ample torque to move the 4,100 pound New Yorker Convertible.
he New Yorkers were attractive vehicles with a two-piece windshield, Art Deco-inspired dashboard, and a long hood and front fenders. 1947 and '48 Chryslers exhibited only minor detail changes from the '46 line-up, but were very well trimmed and very high quality. 

 
This 1947 Chrysler New Yorker is just out of a long time ownership and was treated to a very expensive restoration in the mid-2000's where no expense was spared. Cosmetically the dark green paint is very nice and the bodywork is very straight. On the inside the wool upholstery is done very well and to proper factory specifications. All of the original bakelite knobs and dash trim are in fantastic condition and are color keyed in green to match the rest of the car. This car is also equipped with an original Fulton sun visor and dual fog lights. Mechanically it runs and drives really well and the Fluid Drive transmission shifts flawlessly. This is most likely the nicest 1947 Chrysler New Yorker on the planet. Contact us today for more information.
