1968 Chrysler New Yorker 2-Dr Hardtop / Original 440ci 350hp 4bbl
Factory Triple Black (BB1) with 27000 actual miles
MINT Condition! The nicest we’ve ever seen!
This is most likely the most Chrysler New Yorker in existence. These cars are scarce to begin with. Back in ’68 and certainly today. A total of 48,314 New Yorkers were produced in 1968. Only 8060 were New Yorker 2-door Coupes. That is far less than an Olds 98 (15300), a Buick Electra 225 (11200) and a Pontiac Bonneville (29600) of the same 2-door body style. The New Yorker was Chryslers flagship since the Imperial was now under its own brand. The New Yorker was the highest priced luxury car of its class as well. At this time, the Cadillac and the Imperial were in their own league with a starting price of $5700.
This 27200 mile, 55 year old classic luxury coupe has been extremely well kept and actually looks as good today as it did the day it left the factory and in some areas, even better! This factory black on black (B1) classic is quite possibly the nicest you’ve ever seen. Paint is top notch and absolutely beautiful throughout! The shine is so bright that it was difficult to photo because of the reflection. The chrome bumpers are virtually flawless. The trim pieces are “like new” including the huge chrome pieces between the wheel wells. All chrome and trim are original.
The interior is without question, as good as new and all original except for the seating. They are actually too perfect even for a 27200 mile car. This New Yorker came factory equipped with a center console and vacuum gauge. Other features include Climate Control air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, power seats, AM radio with dual speakers and power antenna. An under-dash FM converter from the early 70s was installed back in the day. Power steering and power brakes were standard. Chryslers famous in-dash coin holder / ashtray as well as the equally popular Cold light are in tact and working as intended. The highlight of this interior is the interior itself; quite possibly the nicest in existence in a New Yorker.
The engine is its original 440ci 4barrel with 350hp, Chrysler best Torqueflite 3-speed automatic transmission and dual exhaust. All lighting inside and out have been upgraded to LED’s for added brightness. Tires have been upgraded from 14″ to 15″ and the Magnum 500 wheels look amazing.
The trunk is immaculate and comes with its original jack and a 15″ spare to match the existing tires. The undercarriage is untouched and completely rust free. The dual exhaust are brand new.
This a very rare car especially in this condition. The mileage is actual and is clearly stated on its Sept 2015 Ohio title when it reported just 22,124 miles.
