1978 Chrysler New Yorker
Car for sale by RB Collection in Allentown, Pennsylvania 18101
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
It is with great pleasure that we offer this superb 1978 Chrysler New
Yorker Brougham. This award-winning example is beautifully preserved in
stunning original condition, coming to us from a noted collector of
Chrysler automobiles. Showing just 35,464 miles from new, this car is an
exceptional example of Chrysler’s luxurious flagship coupe; large and
imposing with style and substance in excess. This car features the
optional St. Regis package which added the contrasting vinyl roof, fixed
B-pillars and opera-style quarter windows. The Black paint is suitably
formal and in outstanding condition overall, impressively well-presented
for its 40-plus years. Accenting the body is a buckskin-colored vinyl
roof, in similarly exceptional condition. The car has an unused spare
tire and the new set of matched radial Diamond Back Classic Tires Custom
was made to precisely match the original whitewall width. The big
Chrysler rides on wide whitewall tires with chrome wheel covers that
draw inspiration from the big chrome wires of the 1930s Imperials. The
remaining brightwork is in excellent order, including the rocker trims,
bumpers, and polished window surrounds. The large doors open and shut
with a satisfying feeling of solidity and the panel gaps are consistent
with this being an untouched original car.
This car features acres of plush and lavishly trimmed velour upholstery, which is also in fabulous original condition. It is fully equipped with a host of 1970s luxury equipment including air conditioning, power windows, power locks, rear defroster, digital electronic clock, remote outside mirror, six-way power driver’s seat, cruise control, and tilting/telescopic steering wheel. With room for five passengers on the vast plush seats, it is the epitome of 1970s style.
Motivation comes from the 400 cubic inch V8 with 4-barrel carburetor, rated at 190 horsepower. The engine bay is tidy and well-kept, appropriately presented for a car with 35,000 original miles. Most of the original stickers and markings are intact, as is the original solid state spark control box attached to the air cleaner. In 2017, the AACA awarded this marvelous Chrysler a 1st Prize in the highly competitive Historic Preservation of Original Features class (HPOF). Thanks to the care and attention it has received from its passionate collector/owner, it stands as one of the best preserved and most original examples of its kind. We are proud to offer it to its next keeper for many more years of enjoyment.
