1957 Chrysler New Yorker


The top-of-the-line 1957 Chrysler New Yorker was one of the first models to get Virgil Exner’s revised ‘Forward Look’ design. Incredibly stylish at the time, and flat-out gorgeous today, there’s not a single line on the car that does not work. The harmonious blend of trim and sheet metal resulted in cars that were not 50's gaudy, but rather some of the most uniform and advanced of their time. With Hemi V8 power and luxurious interiors, they were more than a match for the over-styled Buicks and Oldsmobiles from GM, as well as the stodgy Lincoln Capri. This absolutely beautiful 1957 Chrysler New Yorker recently underwent an expensive restoration and the final result is simply outstanding. Finished in Frosty White & Regimental Red, this big fin classic is laser straight all of the way around the car and the paintwork is simply gorgeous. All of the chrome & stainless is show quality throughout. Slide inside this beautiful Chrysler and you can’t help but feel like it’s 1957 all over again. From the completely restored steering wheel to the new black carpeting, everything appears fresh and clean. Open the hood, and nestled inside the fully restored engine bay, you will find the original 392 ci Hemi V8 motor, beautifully detailed w/ chrome ‘Chrysler Firepower’ valve covers and concours touches everywhere your eye wanders. This has to be the most beautiful engine that Chrysler every produced and is still sought after today by Classic Car & Hot Rod enthusiasts worldwide. These are big powerful V8’s that propelled these large automobiles down the road like no other engine of that era. The beautiful 392 ci Hemi V8 is linked to the 3-Speed Torqueflite automatic transmission w/ of course, the super-cool push buttons on the dash. This beautiful New Yorker fires right up, idles nicely and runs super strong w/ loads of power & torque. The factory Power Steering & Power Brakes make driving around town effortless. She sits on brand new Coker ‘American Classic’ white wall tires wrapped around a set of beautiful Kelsey Hayes chrome wire wheels. The undercarriage is as solid as you can get w/ new fuel tank, new correct exhaust system and new components throughout.
