Description

This is a 1966 Chrysler New Yorker 4 door hardtop. This is one of the cleanest survivor Chryslers of its kind, and is even still sporting its original black license plates. It was purchased new on March 8, 1966 from Fox Motors in Los Gatos, Ca. The car has never left the bay area. The original owner was an old woman who brought it in to the local Mercedes dealer as a trade-in.
I acquired the car from a relative of the dealership supervisor, making me the third owner. While at the dealer, it was professionally repainted to a high standard and is virtually flawless. There are no scratches, chips, or other paint damage. The body is extremely straight and solid, and sports its original chrome and moldings.
The car has 157,000 original miles, with a large chunk of them having been put on early in its life. As per the service records in the original owners manual, the car had 68,000 miles in 1971. The car has almost always been garaged and is in super clean original condition.
Aside from the repaint, everything else is original. The interior features the original seats that exhibit hardly any wear, with very minor splitting of a seam on the rear seat, and a small split on the headliner, but aside from that are virtually new looking!
This car was ordered with power seats, power windows, air conditioning, and full tilt and telescoping steering wheel, all very desirable options!
Heres what doesn't work:
The A/C needs to be charged
dash clock doesn't work
rear drivers window doesn't go down
speedometer needle works, but has stopped recording mileage
Everything else works! Lights, wipers, horn, seats, etc. Also has a brand new CD player in dash.
This car is truly one of the cleanest and fastest cars you could ever drive. The original 7.2L 440 V8 motor is like nothing you've ever driven. The combination of this engine with the original TorqueFlite transmission is an uncomparable experience that you'll only get from behind the wheel of this New Yorker. Just in case you're wondering, I've had this car over 100MPH, so yes, it does haul quite quickly. Runs excellent!
Recent service includes:
New whitewall tires
New brake shoes and springs, and adjustment
Edelbrock performance carburetor installed and dialed in (also have the original Carter that has been rebuilt)
Dual Flowmaster exhaust
Set timing (distributor has an electronic ignition)
New cap, rotor, plug wires, and spark plugs
New ignition coil
New fan clutch
New thermostat
Flushed radiator, new coolant
New oil and filter
I am a professional auto restoration technician and I only allow the cleanest original cars in my collection. This is an extremely clean New Yorker and it pains me to let it go, but it takes up space. . . 20 feet to be exact, and I need to make room for a new project.

Thanks for looking, and Happy Bidding!
