Chrysler New Yorker

Motor vehicle

The Chrysler New Yorker is an automobile model that was produced by Chrysler from to , serving for several decades as the brand's flagship model, or as a junior sedan to the Chrysler Imperial luxury brand. A trim level named the "New York Special" first appeared in and the "New Yorker" name debuted in The New Yorker name helped define the Chrysler brand as a maker of upscale models, priced and equipped to compete against upper-level models from Buick, Oldsmobile and Mercury.

The New Yorker was the best of everything Chrysler offered in terms of style, comfort and prestige, in four-door sedan, two-door coupe and two-door convertible. It was originally offered with the &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) Straight Eight shared with the Imperial, then after the war when the &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) FirePowerV8 was introduced, the New Yorker was one of the first to offer the engine. During the s the New Yorker offered a station wagon platform with a "woodie" appearance that came to be known as the Chrysler Town and Country. As time passed, and customer tastes changed towards smaller, more fuel efficient vehicles began to enter the market place, the New Yorker was reduced in size and switched to front wheel drive in the s while still offering a luxurious environment.

Until its discontinuation in , the New Yorker was the longest-running American car nameplate.[1]

The New York Special Series C19 was originally introduced as a distinct sub-series of the Chrysler Imperial. It was available as a four-door sedan with a &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) straight-eight engine and a generous amount of comfort and space for the passengers, and a two-door Business Coupe - though no records show one was ordered and built.[2] Unique broadcloth upholstery was specific to the New York Special, offering two single color exterior paint or four two-tone color combinations. Instrument panels were highly polished woodgrain finish and were harmonized with the upholstery colors.[2][3] For it was expanded with two more coupe versions and a two-door sedan and a larger, more powerful engine from Imperial,[2] and it took on the "New Yorker" name, dropping the "Special" tag.[4] Prices ranged from US$1, ($22, in dollars [5]) for the 2-passenger 2-door coupe[2] to US$1, ($24, in dollars [5]) for the 4-door sedan.[2]

The first convertibles were introduced with the all-new body-design of the models. This, the C26 series, was the first New Yorker to be considered a standalone model rather than as an Imperial version.[6] It also saw the introduction of Fluid Drive, a fluid coupling between the engine and the clutch. It was installed with a front independent coil spring and rear beam axle suspension. The only transmission available was the basic three-speed manual. There was also the "New Yorker Highlander", a special version with tartan seats and other interior elements, and the same interior approach was used on the Windsor Highlander but using a straight six engine instead.[7] Interior color choices were listed in blue, green, brown and maroon for the cloth upholstery while the headliner, interior rear quarter panels and door panels were trimmed in a lighter, contrasting shade of upholstery color chosen

Lightly redesigned bodies were introduced for , with the business coupe now being a three-window design. The bodies were all marginally wider and lower, with increased glass surface. Another new model was the Town Sedan with the rear doors having the hinges at the forward edge of the doors. This year, the Vacamatic was made available, although unlike the version sold on six-cylinder models, the Saratoga/New Yorker version was a three-speed transmission with overdrive called "Cruise and Climb".

With America entering World War II on 7 December , all automobile production came to an end at the beginning of February Thus, the model year was roughly half the normal length. Cars built after December had blackout trim.[6] The s 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 that wrapped around the front, reaching all the way to the leading edge of the front wheelwell. A total of 12, New Yorkers of the C36 series were built this year.[6] Chrysler would produce and experiment with engines for tanks and aircraft during World War II.

When production resumed after World War II in , the New Yorker became the top level luxury trim package for Chrysler while the Imperial Crown offered New Yorker levels of luxury with an extended &#;in (3,&#;mm) wheelbase. Unlike most car companies, Chrysler did not make major changes with each model year from through Thus models for through Chryslers have the same basic appearance, noted for their die-cast 'harmonica' grille, based on the body introduced with the models. saw a minor redesign in tires, trim, and instrument panel, while the first s were just s with no visible changes. Postwar Chryslers continued to offer Fluid Drive, with the New Yorker now offering the true Presto-Matic four-speed semi-automatic transmission.[8][9][10]

Chrysler offered the New Yorker as the luxury car to compete with the Cadillac Series 61, Buick Roadmaster and Packard Super Clipper[8]. For customers who wanted the larger eight cylinder engine but could compromise on the luxurious appearance and interior refinement, the Chrysler Saratoga was offered.[8] For customers who wanted the higher grade interior and appearance but wanted the fuel economy of the smaller six-cylinder engine, the Chrysler Royal short wheelbase or the longer wheelbase Chrysler Windsor were offered.[8] For customers who liked the exterior wood body panels but wanted the luxurious appearance, the Chrysler Town and Country was offered until it was modified as a station wagon only.[8]

The two-door sedan was offered in three variations shared with DeSoto, Dodge and Plymouth branded models. They were a three-passenger Coupe, a six-passenger Club Coupe with a sloping rear roof or the six-passenger brougham sedan with a formal rear roof appearance.[8]

The 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 cid straight eight coupled to Fluid Drive and the Prestomatic four-speed semi-automatic. Body styles were reduced to club coupe, four-door sedan and convertible. Wheelbase on the New Yorker was increased to &#;in (3,&#;mm) from the &#;in (3,&#;mm) frame introduced in The previous design had been carried through early , with the new (C46) series having been delayed due to a strike in late [15] A padded dash board was optional.[16]

A new body style was introduced for , a two-door hardtop, called the Newport, and the Special Club coupe. New upgrades included foam rubber padding on the dashboard for safety.[17]The New Yorker was the more deluxe of the regular eight-cylinder Chryslers while the Saratoga was repositioned as lower in the hierarchy offering the straight eight with plainer trim with cloth upholstery available in several colors, the &#;hp (&#;kW) Spitfire straight-eight engine and a roomy interior featuring "chair height" seats. The "Presto-Matic" fluid drive transmission had two forward ranges, each with two speeds. In normal driving, the high range was engaged using the clutch. The car could then be driven without using the clutch (unless reverse or low range was required); at any speed above 13&#;mph (21&#;km/h), the driver released the accelerator and the transmission shifted into the higher gear of the range with a slight "clunk". When the car came to a stop, the lower gear was again engaged.

Chrysler introduced the &#;hp (&#;kW) FirePower HemiV8 for [18] The FirePower Hemi equipped cars could accelerate 0 to 60&#;mph (97&#;km/h) in 10 seconds, faster than the Oldsmobile 88 Rocket engine of that time.[citation needed] The engine subsequently became a popular choice among hot rodders and racers.

The New Yorker also offered Fluid Torque Drive, a true torque converter, in place of Fluid Drive. Cars with Fluid Torque Drive came only with Fluid Matic semi-automatic transmission and had a gear selector quadrant on the steering column. Hydraguide power steering, an industry first, appeared as an option[19] on Chrysler cars with the Hemi engine.

A station wagon was offered for , with only built. Its &#;in (3,&#;mm) wheelbase is the longest ever used on a station wagon.[citation needed]

saw a small redesign on taillights with the backup lights in the lower section. This was the last year for the &#;in (3,&#;mm) wheelbase chassis for the New Yorker.

Harold A. Clark used a New Yorker as the base for a full-size sports car called the "Clark Cyclonic". The price was approximately $15, ($, in dollars [5]) and Clark planned to produce 48 during the first year. Whether this car ever reached production is not known.[20]

The New Yorker had a less bulky look with the wheelbase reduced to &#;in (3,&#;mm),[14] a one-piece curved windshield[14] and rear fenders integrated into the body. Wire wheels were now an option. The Saratoga line was dropped in , replaced by the New Yorker, with the New Yorker redesignated the New Yorker DeLuxe. The convertible and Newport hardtop were available only in the New Yorker DeLuxe while the base New Yorker offered a long-wheelbase sedan and a Town & Country wagon. The convertible was New Yorker's costliest model on the &#;in (3,&#;mm) chassis for at US$3, ($38, in dollars [5]) – only were built. Also new were pull-style exterior door handles.[14]

Chrysler New Yorker Deluxe St. Regis hardtop coupe

In , Chrysler replaced the out of fashion high roofline designs of K.T. Keller with a new sedan that borrowed styling cues from Virgil Exner's custom Imperial Parade Phaeton and the reintroduction of the Imperial luxury brand. The tradition of adding the Newport as a suffix to the model name continued and a four-door hardtop was added, while the "St. Regis" nameplate was used for hardtops with exclusive two-tone paint.[8] The Hemi V8's output was up to &#;hp (&#;kW), another step forward in Detroit's ongoing horsepower war, while the Chrysler offered higher amounts of horsepower from the same displacement engine. The PowerFlite transmission added a control lever on the instrument panel for [22]

Its Hemi V8 was increased to &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) and &#;hp (&#;kW).The TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission and a Torsion-Aire torsion bar suspension that gave smoother handling and ride quality to the car were both standard.

The New Yorker entered with a new grille, slanted headlights, a continental kit on the trunk lid. The CID "RB" Golden Lion V-8 continued. This was the last of the "Forward Look" models. Chrysler built 2, New Yorker two-door hardtops, in Canada through and in the U.S., and no longer used the nameplate "Newport" for hardtop models when the Chrysler Newport became its own model line.[22]

The program to create all-new Chryslers for the model year was abruptly canceled in The alternative, as detailed by Chrysler designer Jeffrey I. Godshall in his article in the December issue of Collectible Automobile, was to instead take the Chrysler Corporation's full-sized models and literally "mix-and-match" them to create the Chryslers.[31] During the model year New Yorkers would only be offered as 4-door models. Thus both the hardtop sedan and the pillared sedan were created by taking the front end of a New Yorker (updated for ) and mating it to the de-finned body of a corresponding Dodge Polara 4-door sedan.[31] The Polara, which was Dodge's only long-wheelbase model, was chosen because its body's smoother sides proved to be easier to work with when creating a finless body, a major requirement for the redesign.

The Polara's existing tailfins and taillights were replaced by redesigned rear-quarter panels which furnished the New Yorkers with finless rear fenders and new taillights. In a similar fashion, the New Yorker station wagon was created by mating the updated front end of an New Yorker to the body of a Plymouth Suburban 4-door station wagon.[31] A Plymouth station wagon was Plymouth's only long-wheelbase offering, and it was chosen because it was Chrysler Corporation's only finless full-sized station wagon. Thus only four-door New Yorkers were offered, as wagons, sedans, and hardtops. The New Yorker was the last Chrysler to have a &#;in (3,&#;mm) wheelbase.[32]

The RB had a in (&#;mm) bore and was used from in cars. During that period, it powered all Chrysler New Yorker, G & H and Imperial Custom, Crown, and Le Baron models, and was also available on the Chrysler Newport, as well as Dodge's Polara and Monaco, and the Plymouth Fury as an alternative to the cubic-inch B series engine and/or the Poly. With a compression ratio of , it developed &#;hp (&#;kW) and &#;lb⋅ft (&#;N⋅m) of torque in 1X4-Bbl trim.

Chrysler got a boost in sales in with the introduction of a five-year/50,mile warranty, a business practice that was unheard of by its competitors in the s. The New Yorker used Chrysler's completely redesigned body with only the windshield showing traces of the previous Forward Look designs, although, under the skin, platform changes were near zero, with only a change from inch "Total Contact" to Bendix-made inch Duo-Servo brakes. A new, more luxurious Salon four-door hardtop was added at midyear as a trim package in the U.S. Engine output was &#;hp (&#;kW) and the wheelbase was &#;in (3,&#;mm).[22]

All Chryslers (as well as large Plymouth and Dodges) were built on an all-new C-body unibody platform that featured a bolt-on, rubber-isolated front subframe. Elwood Engel designed the New Yorker (and all Chrysler models) with styling cues from his Lincoln Continental — slab sides with chrome trim along the top edges of the fenders. The styling began to share some visual similarities with Chrysler Motors' premium luxury sedan, the Imperial, which received an all-new appearance in [22]

The standard engine was a &#;hp (&#;kW; &#;PS) Firepower &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) V8, with single 4-barrel carburetion. As an option the buyer could order high-performance from that year's Chrysler letter car, which came with an unsilenced air cleaner, dual breaker ignition, special camshaft and dual exhaust, and was rated at &#;hp (&#;kW; &#;PS).

The New Yorker was offered as a 4-door sedan, 2- and 4-door hardtop, and as Town & Country 2- or 3-seat station wagon. The 4-door sedan was a six-window Town Sedan, also available in the Newport line and Dodge Custom 4-door Sedan. A 4-door, four-window sedan was produced but not offered in the New Yorker line. The two-door hardtop was sold in the United States. While the and Newport 2-door hardtops shared a rounded, convertible-styled roof, the New Yorker had a unique roofline, resembling that of the 4-door hardtops. The more formal and squared-off lines were highlighted by a padded vinyl covering on the parallelogram-shaped rear pillar. The wheelbase of the New Yorker models, except the wagon, was &#;in (3,&#;mm). The Town & Country wagon was on the Dodge's &#;in (3,&#;mm) wheelbase as all C-body wagons shared the same basic body. Factory options for included a vinyl rear roof pillar insert, Saginaw-sourced Tilt 'N Telescopic steering wheel, air conditioning, and power options (windows, antenna, and steering).

In rounded "Fuselage Styling" gave way to an even more massive slab-sided effect on all full-size Chryslers. This generation introduced covered headlights, and a more prominent "waterfall" style grille, reflecting popular styling motifs, primarily used on the Lincoln Continental. These models happened to debut at almost precisely the same time that the OPEC oil embargo began, and were a significant part of Chrysler's economic woes in the late s. The models were the last full-size models Chrysler designed from the ground up.[39]

Two New Yorker trim levels were offered in , the base New Yorker and an upgraded New Yorker Brougham. A new St. Regis option package was added mid-year.

For , the New Yorker received a slightly revised grille and New Yorker Brougham became the sole trim designation. The St. Regis package, introduced in mid, returned for its first full year.

The Imperial styling gave the New Yorker an unforeseen boost in sales, as the car looked distinctly different from the lower-priced Newport. The styling cues formerly used on the and New Yorkers, in turn, were passed on to the base Chrysler Newport.

In , the standard cid V8 engine was now computer-controlled with a new "lean burn" system allowing for more responsive acceleration and performance.

The New Yorker Brougham was available in 2-door and 4-door hardtop body styles. Both were the last U.S.-built true pillarless hardtop models with frameless door glass and fully opening windows.[40] An optional "St. Regis" package included a partial "formal" padded vinyl roof that included a fixed B-pillar and opera window.[41] This was also the final year a 2-door New Yorker was offered. Appearance changes were limited to a new segmented grill design, dual accent tape strips on the lower body sides, new rear deck stripes, and bright accents on the taillamps.[42] The &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) V8 engine (&#;cu&#;in (&#;L) in California and high altitude regions) became the standard engine, with the &#;cu&#;in (&#;L) optional.

In , a Chrysler-built L I4 replaced the L I4 as the standard engine. Also new was an automatic load-leveling suspension. Cosmetically, rear decklid panels, moldings, and taillights were redesigned. Interior changes included a new forward console and revised electronic instrumentation and an AM/FM stereo and deluxe intermittent wipers were now standard.

In , hood vents were eliminated on the turbo models, as were fender louvers on all models. A new six-speaker Infinity sound system was optional. As with other Chryslers, the steering wheel was redesigned. This was the best-selling and last full model year for the E-platform New Yorker.

Although a new thirteenth generation New Yorker was introduced for , the twelfth generation continued for one more abbreviated model year as the New Yorker Turbo. The &#;L I4 turbo was now the standard and only available engine. In addition to the turbo engine, previously optional yet commonly ordered equipment like automatic temperature control air conditioning, tilt steering wheel, cruise control, rear-window defogger, and power door locks became standard. While previous model year New Yorkers equipped with the optional turbo engine were commonly referred to as a "New Yorker Turbo" and wore "Turbo" badges, only the model had it as its official model name.

The redesigned New Yorker for was bigger (see Chrysler C platform) and bore no resemblance to the E-body model it replaced although many 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 &#;L unit and optional anti-lock brakes. Base and Landau trim choices were offered, the latter of which carried a rear-quarter vinyl top. Hidden headlamps, a feature lost when the R-body cars were discontinued, made a return with this redesign. All thirteenth generation New Yorkers, as well as the reintroduced flagship Imperial, were covered by Chrysler's market-leading "Crystal Key Owner Care Program" which included a 5-year/50,mile limited warranty and 7-year/70,mile powertrain warranty. A hour toll-free customer service hotline was also provided.

For , the &#;L V6 engine had a slight horsepower increase and was now mated to a new 4-speed Ultradrive automatic transmission. This year also marked the 50th anniversary of the "New Yorker" name. Although no special anniversary edition or recognition was offered at the time, it turned out to be the most popular New Yorker of the model run with over , units produced that year.

In , a new base model New Yorker called "Salon" was added. The Salon was a rebadged Dodge Dynasty with exposed headlamps, horizontal taillights, and grille similar to the Dodge. The Salon was sold in Canada as the Chrysler Dynasty. All models carried a new Chrysler-built &#;L V6 engine that year. Minor changes to the interior included a more contemporary contoured dash. A driver's side airbag was now standard.

The Landau model was dropped for but Salon was upgraded and now came with more standard equipment, hidden headlights, vertical taillights, and a traditional Chrysler grille.

A styling update for produced a more rounded appearance front and rear. A padded landau roof, similar to one previously featured on the "Landau" model, was now an option on the Salon.

The final generation of the New Yorker continued with front-wheel drive on an elongated version of the new Chrysler LH platform and was shown at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It was released in May along with the nearly identical Chrysler LHS as an early model, six months after the original LH cars: the Chrysler Concorde, Dodge Intrepid, and Eagle Vision, were introduced. The New Yorker came standard with the &#;L EGE which produced &#;hp (&#;kW). Chrysler gave the New Yorker a more "traditional American" luxury image, and the LHS a more European performance image (as was done with the Eagle Vision). Little separated New Yorker from LHS in appearance, with New Yorker's chrome hood trim, body-color cladding, standard chrome wheel covers, and inch wheels, column shifter and front bench seat, being the only noticeable differences. An option provided for inch wheels and a firmer suspension type ("touring suspension"). This option eliminated the technical differences between the New Yorker and LHS. LHS came with almost all of New Yorker's optional features as standard equipment and featured the firmer tuned suspension, to go with its more European image.

During the model run, various changes were made to the New Yorker. On the outside, New Yorker was switched to new accent-color body cladding, whereas LHS received body-color cladding. This change aligned New Yorker with the Chrysler Concorde which also had accent-color cladding. The inch wheels became standard. Likewise, the touring suspension option available on early New Yorker models was discontinued, leaving only "ride-tuned" suspension. This resulted in a permanent technical difference with LHS.

For , the New Yorker received Chrysler's revived blue ribbon logo (which was last used in the s) on its grille, which replaced the Pentastar that had been used on models beginning in

The model featured additional sound insulation and revised structural engineering to give it a quieter ride. A new built-in transmitter replaced the remote garage door opener. The antenna was now integrated into the rear window. Due to similarities between the New Yorker and LHS, and the LHS's strong sales, the New Yorker name was dropped after a short production run. Despite being far more contemporary and monochromatic in design compared to previous models, the traditional New Yorker with its two-tone cladding and chrome trim still did not follow the modern, monochromatic styling trend of the division's other vehicles in

LH design background[edit]

The fourteenth, and final, generation New Yorker's design can be traced to , when designer Kevin Verduyn completed the initial exterior design of a new aerodynamic concept sedan called Navajo. The design never passed the clay model stage.

It was also at this time that the Chrysler Corporation purchased bankrupt Italiansports car manufacturer Lamborghini. The Navajo's exterior design was reworked and became the Lamborghini Portofino, released as a concept at the Frankfurt Auto Show. The Portofino was heralded as a design triumph, setting in motion Chrysler's decision to produce a production sedan with the Portofino's revolutionary exterior design, called "cab-forward". The cab forward design was characterized by the long, low slung windshield, and relatively short overhangs. The wheels were effectively pushed to the corners of the car, creating a much larger passenger cabin than the contemporaries of the time.

Design of the chassis began in the late s, after Chrysler had bought another automaker: American Motors Corporation (AMC) in During this time, Chrysler began designing the replacement for the Dodge Dynasty and Chrysler Fifth Avenue as well as a potential Plymouth. The initial design of Dodge's LH bore resemblance to the Dynasty, and this design was scrapped entirely after François Castaing, formerly AMC's Vice President of product engineering and development, became Chrysler's Vice President of vehicle engineering in The new design, under Castaing's leadership, began with the Eagle Premier, also sold later as the Dodge Monaco. The Premier's longitudinal engine mounting layout was inherited, as was the front suspension geometry, and parts of the braking system. The chassis itself became a flexible architecture capable of supporting front or rear-wheel drive (designated "LH" and "LX" respectively). The chassis design was continually refined throughout the following years, as it underpinned more Chrysler prototypes: the Chrysler Millennium and Eagle Optima.

The transmission was inspired by the Eagle Premier's ZF automatic. However, it borrowed heavily from Chrysler's A (41TE) "Ultradrive" transversely mounted automatic, it became the A (also known as 42LE). This Ultradrive transmission however was not without critics as The New York Times reported on January 25, , that Consumers Union would publish in the February issue of the magazine Consumer Reports a warning for consumers to not purchase a vehicle with this "Ultradrive" transmission citing poor reliability and safety hazards. By , it was decided that the new technologically advanced car would need a new technologically advanced engine to power it. Until that time, the only engine confirmed for use was Chrysler's &#;L pushrod V6, which would be used in the three original LH cars, the Intrepid, Vision, and Concorde, in base form. The &#;L engine's 60° block was bored out to &#;L, while the pushrod-actuated valves were replaced with SOHC cylinder heads with four valves per cylinder, creating an advanced &#;L V6 optional in the three smaller cars, but standard in LHS and New Yorker.

The general LH appearance, still based on the cab forward exterior design of the Lamborghini Portofinoconcept, with its aerodynamic shape, made for little wind noise inside this large car. This sleek styling gives the LH cars a low drag coefficient which was ahead of its time. The New Yorker featured a more monochromatic design inside and out (but less so than its LHS sibling, which had very little chrome trim), and aluminum wheels with a Spiralcast design. The single color motif was more pronounced on models without the grey lower cladding.

Upscale New Yorker models feature leather-trimmed seats, steering wheel, shift knob, and door inserts. Passenger comforts include rear center rear armrest, and 8-way power seats for both the driver and passenger, as well as personal reading lamps. Power windows and central door locks were standard, as was climate control with air conditioning, and cruise control. remote keyless entry available as an option, as was a remote activated alarm, an overhead console with a computer, power moonroof, and alloy wheels. The best stock audio options found in New Yorker are the Infinity sound systems having eight speakers positioned throughout the cabin along with an equalizer. Head units include a radio with either cassette or CD playback, and up to a five-band adjustable graphic equalizer, with joystick balance and fade control. Standard safety features included dual front airbags, anti-lock brakes (ABS), and traction control.

Dual-way power sunroofs were available on this car. They were designed and installed by American Sunroof Corp. (now ASC Global) from its Columbus, Ohio plant, not by Mopar itself. An installed sunroof eliminated most of the front overhead console that featured storage bins for a garage door opener and sunglasses. However, the Overhead Travel Information System (OTIS), or onboard computer with integrated map lights, was retained.


Main article: Chrysler LHS

The five-passenger Chrysler LHS was differentiated from its New Yorker counterpart by a floor console and shifter, five-passenger seating, lack of chrome trim, an upgraded interior, and a sportier image. After a short production run the New Yorker was dropped in favor of a six-passenger option on the LHS. The LHS received a minor face change in when the corporate-wide Pentastar emblem was replaced with the revived Chrysler brand emblem.

How great it is. I have already finished so many times that I just lost count, then Andres put Julia in cancer and pierced. Her anus, she screamed with pain and pleasure and threw all her energy into kissing my pussy, which I put on display right in front of her. Her rhythmic tongue movements just drove me crazy, and our moans were accompanied by the spanking of Andres' testicles on Julia's ass.

Now discussing:

So silly. After all, this is not in her spirit - she has always been a pure girl. But. she must stop thinking about him, and that might be the way.
