1966 Chrysler New Yorker 2dr HT / 440ci TNT (375hp)
These New Yorkers are extremely hard to find and never seen in this condition. Not only is the condition of this New Yorker impeccable, but may be the most optioned New Yorker in existence. PLEASE, take a minute to look at this incredible New Yorker. Whether you like these big Chrysler cruisers or not, you can certainly appreciate the detail and condition of this one in a million classics.
The New Yorker was Chryslers top-of-the-line luxury car throughout its history. Lower models were the sportier 300 and the basic Newport and Newport Custom. The Imperial was a step above but was on its own platform under the Imperial name. Because they were designated as luxury class, most New Yorkers were four-door sedans. Not this one!
Lets go through the details of this New Yorker starting with the paint. It has been refinished in its original color of Chrystal Blue (Color Code DD). The paint now looks far better than it did when it left the factory. The paint, is the only thing that is NOT original to the car. Even the beautiful partial vinyl top looks like new and is all original. The body is super straight with absolutely no dings or dents anywhere. The chrome and all trim pieces are 100% original with no pitting or hazing.
The rare high performance 440ci TNT 375hp engine was a big option to this and all Chryslers of this time. The TNT option is evident by the oversized exhaust manifolds, dual snorkel air cleaner and dual exhaust. The engine starts, runs and drives flawlessly and has plenty of power for a 18′ cruiser.
Now lets get to the best and most beautiful part of this car. The Interior and its features & options. Starting with the leather seats. They are two-toned leather like we’ve never seen. The seat backs are equally as nice with huge stainless pieces shining bright. The material is absolutely flawless with no tares, cracks or marks of any kind. The dash is also beautiful and as good as new. The dash pad, headliner and rear package tray are as good as new. The list of features and options are impressive starting with the basics; air conditioning that blows COLD, center console with vacuum gauge, AM-FM stereo with front & rear speaker selector and power antenna. Power windows & power vent windows, Electric (power) door locks, power seats, power steering, power brakes, power trunk lid release and another Chrysler feature, the COLD light that stays on green until the motor warms up a bit. Everything works at it should.
The undercarriage is rust free but shows that the car has been used sparingly.
Please take your time and carefully look over the many pictures of this truely rare find. It is just amazing that a car could look this good and run so well in every way after 50+ years of use. There is not much history to go along with this car which is unfortunate. It is obvious that it has had a very modest past and was treated like a queen throughout its life. While we have her, we will try to do some research to find any history we can but Chrysler is very weak in the documentation area.
