Classic Car Overview

1942 Chrysler New Yorker $109,000

Mooresville, NC 291 V-8 HEMI DESOTO · 532 miles
1942 Chrysler New Yorker Custom build by Berrys Rod Shop, no expenses were spared. The Chrysler Eights had the same general styling as the sixes, with slightly longer front end sheet metal. Small chrome signatures on the rear side of the hood, under the beltline trim, identified the car as New Yorkers. New Yorkers had upscale interiors with front carpets , clocks and folding rear seat armrests. 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 four-door sedan with a 298.7 CID straight-eight engine and a generous amount of comfort and space to the passengers (series C19). For 1939 it was expanded with two more coupe versions and a two-door sedan and a larger, more powerful engine. Now the C23 series, it took on the New Yorker name, dropping the Special tag. With America entering World War II on 7 December 1941, all automobile production came to an end at the beginning of February, 1942. Thus, the 1942 model year was roughly half the normal length. Cars built after December 1941 had blackout trim. The 1942s were quite modern, of a design which was heralding the post-war ponton style with fenders more incorporated into the bodywork. The grille consisted of five horizontal chrome bars which wrapped around the front, reaching all the way to the leading edge of the front wheelhouses. Chrysler would produce and experiment with engines for tanks and aircraft during World War II. One post-war application of this would lead to the creation of the first generation Hemi of the 1950s.
