Steel, vinyl & wood: 1953 Chrysler New Yorker Town and Country

ScreenShot010

To the eye of many this could seem on of the many big american station wagon of the fifties, but in fact this is maybe the rarest of them all.

It’s called New Yorker Town and Country and the first thing you see is that this is pushed by a mighty 331 c.i. Hemi V8: this displacement was high even for the american standards of that time. To make a long story short: only few more than 1,200 cars like this were made: it would be a low number even for the european production of the time, but for the american standard that number is ridicolously low.

The seller says that this has always been in Colorado and so it has a very solid body with basically no rust problems; that is a proper barn find and actually interios look very good, especially the beautiful wood/stainless steel deck which is very nice. He also says that the car had some new parts like brakes, tires, ball joints and (of course) battery. Find it for sale at $10,800 o.b.o. here in Frederick, CO.
