Chrysler New Yorker road car

1946 : Generation 1

The New York Special model was originally introduced as a distinct sub-series of the 1938 Chrysler Imperial.
It was available in 1938 as a 4-door sedan with a 323 CID Straight-8 and a generous amount of comfort and space to the passengers.
For 1939, it was expanded with 2 more coupe versions and a 2-door sedan.
The first convertibles were introduced with the all-new body-design of the 1940 models. ...

1949 : Generation 2

The 1949 New Yorker used Chrysler Corporation's new postwar body also shared by Dodge and DeSoto with ponton, three-box styling.
The engine continued to be the 323.5-cid straight eight coupled to Fluid Drive and the Prestomatic four-speed semi-automatic.
Body styles were reduced to club coupe, 4-door sedan and convertible.
Wheelbase on the New Yorker was increased to 131.5 in (3,340 mm) from the 127.5 in (3,240 mm) frame introduced in 1941. ...

1955 : Generation 3

In 1955, Chrysler did away with the out of fashion high roofline designs of K.T.
Keller and came out with a new sedan that borrowed styling cues from Virgil Exner's custom 1952 Imperial Parade Phaeton.
The hemi engine produces 250 hp (190 kW) this year.
The result would become an ongoing trend for increasing engine output throughout the next two decades with Chrysler and its rival competitors.
The Powerflite transmission was controlled by a lever on the instrument panel. ...

1957 : Generation 4

In 1957, Chrysler cars were redesigned with Virgil Exner's "Forward Look" at the cost of $300 million.
The 1957 New Yorker had a powerful 392 cu in (6.4 L) Hemi V8 engine rated at 325 hp (242 kW).
This stylish car sold well with 10,948 built, but only 1,049 convertible models.
The 1957 models also came with the TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission and a Torsion bar suspension called Torsion-Aire that gave smoother handling and ride quality to the car.
The New Yorker also sported fins that swept up fr ...

1965 : Generation 6

In 1965, Elwood Engel redesigned the New Yorker with styling cues from his 1961 Lincoln Continental — square side view with chrome trim along the top edges of the fenders.
The options were: a 413 CID V8, dual pipe exhaust and power options (A/C, windows, antenna and steering).
The engine itself put out 375 hp (280 kW) and was phased out for the 440 Firepower next model year. ...

1969 : Generation 7

For 1969, Chrysler big C bodies received a major reworking with curved sides and a higher belt line.
Underneath the new look were the underpinnings of 1965.
The new look was called "Fuselage Styling" and was not received as warmly as the 1968 models.
The two-door hardtop received a new look harking back to the club coupes of the 1940s. ...

1974 : Generation 8

The so called "fuselage" styling featured on all full size Chrysler products remained relatively unchanged until the introduction of the 1974 models which featured a far more massive slab sided effect.
These 1974 models timed to coincide precisely with the 1973 OPEC oil embargo, and were a significant part of Chrysler's economic woes in the late 1970s.
The 1974 models were the last full-size models Chrysler designed from the ground up, as the short lived 1979-81 R-bodies were stretched versions of the old ...

1978 : Generation 9

The Chrysler Fifth Avenue began as a submodel of the New Yorker in 1979, after the nameplate was shifted to the Chrysler R platform.
The R-body series was a "Pillared Hardtop".
The NYR now used the 318 V8 ;the 360 engine was optional through 1980.
While shorter and much lighter than the previous generation, these cars still had a big car look and ride.
Hidden headlamps and full-width taillights distinguished it from its R-body siblings Newport, St.
Regis and Gran Fury.
A Fifth Avenue "Limited Edition" was ...

1982 : Generation 10

In an effort of downsizing, the 1982 Chrysler New Yorker (and the Fifth Avenue trim) moved to the corporate M-body.
In turn, the Chrysler LeBaron, which had previously used the M-body, moved to the compact K-body this year.
The 1982 New Yorker was not a completely new vehicle.
It was essentially a restyled and upgraded version of the LeBaron which had been produced since 1977.
This M-body New Yorker used Chrysler's slant 6 engine.
The 318 in³ engine was optional. ...

1983 : Generation 11

In 1983, the New Yorker name was used on two different models.
The M-body car was now the "New Yorker Fifth Avenue," a name which changed to simply "Fifth Avenue" from 1984 to 1989.
The other was an all new K-car based New Yorker, which used the front-wheel drive Chrysler E platform, the beginning of the extended K-car years.
The E-platform New Yorker came with state-of-the-art 1980s technology, including a digital dashboard and Electronic Voice Alert, which spoke notifications such as "A door is ajar"; "P ...

1987 : Generation 12

The "new" New Yorker was bigger and bore no resemblance to the E-body model (which remained for a portion of the 1988 model year, and was now dubbed New Yorker Turbo).
Most underbody and suspension components were carryover.
It shared similar upright body styling with the newly introduced Dodge Dynasty.
This new version had a V6 engine — a Mitsubishi-sourced 3.0 liter powerplant, and optional anti-lock brakes.
Base and Landau trim choices were offered, the latter of which carried a rear-quarter vinyl top.
