Description

This is a 1963 Chrysler New Yorker finished in Formal Black over a Hopi Turquoise interior powered by a 6.8-liter 413ci V8 paired to a 3-speed automatic transmission. With approximately 90k-miles on the odometer, it is currently registered in Montreal, QC with a clean title. This luxury sedan was acquired by the owner five years ago, adding 5000 kms in that time. Updates include a re-upholstered interior, new paint, new exhaust lines, and an EFI conversion - amounting to over $15,000 invested over the past three years. This sleek and stylish sedan is a sumptuous vestige of the Golden Age of the Detroit Auto Industry. It was designed by Elwood Engel (of Lincoln Continental fame), who adapted this flagship of the Chrysler brand from the large tail fins and and jet-age front wings of his predecessor Virgil Exner’s “forward look” designs in the 50s into the more streamlined and sophisticated look of luxurious limousines which characterised the early 60s.

For US bidders, this New Yorker is directly importable without modification as it is EPA & DOT exempt being greater than 25 years old. For more information on transport/import please visit our Transport/Import page here.

The New Yorker’s exterior shell, reaching nearly 18 feet long, was resprayed in its original shade of Formal Black two years ago. The vehicle has a curb weight of 3,910 lbs. It is adorned with gold New Yorker script badges, a chrome “harmonica”-style grille, and chrome bumpers with subtle guards at both ends. Decorative chrome also runs along the length of the car, and in six vertical lines behind the front fenders. The Chrysler’s quad headlamps are round, recessed, and level. The wraparound windshield, swivelling quarter glass, and sharply angled posts of the side mirrors are stand-out design features. Some discoloration of the chrome trunk surround and beneath the rear window is noted. The vehicle sits on 14” wheels wrapped in Supreme SE II Touring whitewall tires, P215/75R14 all around. Stopping power is provided by Bendix 11 inch Duo-Servo brakes. To note some imperfections, there is some oil seepage occurring near the rear axle housing and some surface corrosion is present on the undercarriage.

The cabin of this 1963 Chrysler New Yorker features bench seats that were recently reupholstered in the original optional Hopi Turquoise leather and grey cloth colorway. The door panels, dash, headliner, and steering wheel are all matching in turquoise, with chrome being used for handles, cranks, instrument and radio surrounds, and accents all throughout the interior. The two-spoke steering wheel is softly squared-off and fronts a 120-mph speedometer framed by auxiliary gauges and pull switches for the lights and wipers. The TorqueFlite automatic transmission is operated with push buttons mounted on the instrument panel; labelled reverse, neutral, drive, second, and first, with a lever to park. Climate controls are also push button operated and located to the right of the gauges. Reminiscent of the long-gone era, an ashtray and cigarette lighter are mounted on the passenger side seat back. Clarion speakers have been installed into the rear parcel shelf. Some cosmetic issues such as fraying door seals, leather scuffs, and sagging headliner are present and are observed in the imperfections gallery.

This 1963 Chrysler New Yorker luxury sedan is equipped with a 413 cubic inch (6.8-liter) overhead valve V8 powering the rear wheels by way of a TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission. This engine was based on Chrysler’s RB block with wedge shaped combustion chambers and capable of producing 340 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque when new. The fuel delivery system has been modified from a four-barrel carburetor to electronic fuel injection. The dual outlet exhaust lines are also a new addition. The seller notes that extensive service records and a spare wheel are included in the sale.
