1965 Chrysler New Yorker Town Sedan / 100% Survivor in Incredible Condition
The introduction of the all new 1965 Chrysler line-up featured ads proclaiming “The most beautiful Chrysler ever built! Agreed?” The line-up was the first effort of a new to Chrysler designer, Elwood Engel, who had defected from Ford in 1961. He had designed the elegant 1961 Lincoln lines as well. The public must have agreed, as a record 224,061 new Chryslers of all series rolled off the line at Jefferson assembly in Detroit. A total of 16,339 New Yorker Town Sedans were produced in 1965. They came from the factory with a 413ci 340hp 4bbl V8 engine, backed by a 3speed 727 Torqueflite automatic transmission. Power steering and power drum brakes were standard.
The New Yorker Town Sedan featured here has a 2 owner history and is the nicest 100% original Chrysler we have ever seen. Sold new at Griffith Chrysler in Denver, Colorado. It still wears the Griffith keyfob on the original keys and the Griffith name on the trunk badge! The car was in the hands of the original owners in Boulder Colorado until early 1990. The mileage at that time was roughly 73,000. The second owner purchased the car in June 1995 and drove it to its second home to Indianapolis. The car has been driven very little in the 23 years of ownership by the second owner, a Chrysler collector. The current mileage is under 76000. which is absolutely correct. The car has always been stored in a heated garage and hasnt seen rain or snow in its life.
This Very Nice Original Chrysler New Yorker has a rust free body with Beautiful like-new chrome, trim and an unusually nice original interior.. It starts instantly, runs and drives in complete silence with plenty of power. The car still has 100% of the original paint in very presentable condition, with a great shine. The original emblems are very nice as shown in the photos. There are a few touch-ups in the finish, but it is still nearly new. There is a crack very low in the windshield, almost completely hidden by the passenger side wiper. We will have a replacement shortly.
The engine compartment and trunk are in beautiful original condition. It has power steering and brakes, power windows, 6 way Power seat, an AM Radio with a rear speaker. The car is in excellent mechanical condition. Everything works. The clock is a bit intermittent, but runs most of the time. It seems to rest when the car is turned off but starts again when the car is restarted. The Heat and Defroster system works as well. The factory Air Conditioning operates but is cool, not cold. It still runs on the old R12 Refrigerant and hasnt been refilled in 20 years. The tires are newer 225/75 x 14 All Season Radials with nearly 100% tread life remaining.
