Classic Car Overview

Rarity, distinction, and Hemi power make this 1953 Chrysler New Yorker Deluxe convertible instantly attractive. After all, there is just something appealing about an upper-classic drop-top with cool features and a distinct personality. Its believed there were less than 1,000 of these 53 New Yorker Deluxe convertibles ever made. Oh yes, this has a rarity, especially when you think about how few are surviving nearly 70 years later. So you are likely to be the only one showing up in one...even at a Mopar event. More than just rarity, this has a terrific look of a premium drop-top. The sheet metal looks good, the paint has a nice gloss, and the rear end looks as shapely as Cadillacs DeVille. We are told a few stories of this car being hidden away for a few decades, and so not everything is perfect. But the way the trim has a clean and complete appearance and the chrome bumper fit instantly give this car distinction. After all, real wire wheels and wide whitewalls let you know this 1950s Mopar is a true cruiser. While the black roof looks good against the pearl gray paint, youre going to like the look of it when you power the top down. The interior keeps the steely gray to go with the black, but the real attraction is the distinct red inserts on the seats, doors, and dash. We especially like the detailing here where the red is a comfy cloth insert on the seat with a button-top presentation, and the door panels are even upholstered to match. Youll love the vintage-style details. The AM radio is there for display, the steering wheel is intricately artful, and the courtesy light still greets you when you open the door. This even has provisions for power windows. They will likely need some servicing and/or parts for ideal functioning, but they are part of a premium package that possibly gets the rarity of this one down to 1 in 10! What will excite collectors the most is the presentation under the hood. The 331 cubic-inch FirePower V8 is Chryslers original Hemi engine. It launched a long and powerful history at Chrysler, which earned it instant respect. So its great to have such a classic presentation, right down to the generator and FirePower valve covers. You may want to take a little extra time to help unleash the full potential of a four-barrel Hemi V8, but it will be worth it. After all, this Chrysler was made for cruising with features like the supple ride and power steering. This Chrysler has a big barn find kind of vibe to it. That means it has a lot of cool and classic details, but you will likely want to do some additional improvements to make it ideal. Still, its this unique personality that makes it so attractive - especially when seen on a rare Chrysler Hemi drop-top. Call now!
