1953' Chrysler New Yorker
Beauty, rarity, and Hemi power make this 1953 Chrysler New Yorker Newport instantly attractive. And the closer you get, the more you see that this restored hardtop has the thoughtfulness and sharpness you want in an upper-class vintage car. We have a photo file documenting a comprehensive restoration on this New Yorker, but its first impression already tells you everything about its quality. There is a deep shine to this one that radiates with class. It instantly lets people know that there has been a big investment in keeping this classic Chrysler looking impressive. And we can understand exactly why there would be this much respect. There were less than 6,000 New Yorker Newports built in 1953, and so nearly seven decades later, they are a true rare treat. This has a terrific look of premium coupe with exceptional sheetmetal, and the rear end looks as shapely as Cadillacs DeVille. The Cinnamon Metallic paint has a modern clearcoat luster for added brilliance, and the Caravan Beige gives you a classic two-tone that draws added attention to the pillarless hardtop roof. And of course, we love the chrome on the big mirror-like bumpers, complete Chrysler trim, and the grille that wraps around the front end and seamlessly creates a bright streak running into the door line. Its a detail-oriented classic where enthusiasts are going to spend real time marveling just at the real wire wheels with whitewalls. The cinnamon and beige two-tone continues on the inside. It has the kind of presentation where its almost like money was no object in making sure it looks like a time capsule and feels as fresh as day one. The two-tone on the seats, door panels, and dash coordinate with the headliner and even the steering wheel. Even the trunk is nicely finished with a full-sized wire wheel spare. So with such a sharp presentation and a well-coordinated color combo inside and out, youre going to love rolling down all the windows on this hardtop and showcasing the full package. More than just a looker, this was made for cruising with Chryslers stylish instrument panel looking clean, and the defroster is working for those pre-dawn mornings when you want to be first at the car show. What will excite collectors the most is the presentation under the hood. The 331 cubic-inch FirePower V8 is Chryslers original Hemi engine. It launched a long and powerful history at Chrysler, and that gets it instant respect. So to have a museum-quality presentation in this engine bay make it the kind of car where everyone takes extra time. And youll overhear conversations of people point out everything from the decal on the air cleaner to how Chrysler overbuilt their motors with handy features like dual belts. More than just an award-worthy look, this is will impress with how immediate and strong the mighty V8 fires up. In fact, we have a detailed schematic from Daytona Auto Designs that suggest just how thorough the restoration was to the engine bay. And the ultra-clean undercarriage photos prove that they really invested in every inch of this coupe. The supple ride, power brakes, and smooth-shifting three-speed automatic transmission are all part of a package that proves this still want to hit the boulevard every Saturday night. This classic Chrysler loves to impress with every inch. So if youre looking for a stunning example that also will likely be the only one at the car show, call today!
