FOR SALE: 1956 Chrysler New Yorker
The Chrysler New Yorker was a premium automobile model by the Chrysler division of the Chrysler Corporation from 1946-1996, serving for several years as the brand\'s flagship model. A trim level named the \"New York Special\" first appeared in 1938. Until its discontinuation in 1996, the New Yorker had made its mark as the longest running American car nameplate. The New Yorker name helped define the Chrysler brand as a maker of upscale models priced and equipped above mainstream brands like Ford, Chevrolet/Pontiac, and Dodge/Plymouth, but below full luxury brands like Cadillac, Lincoln and Packard. During the New Yorker\'s tenure, it competed against models from Buick, Oldsmobile and Mercury. In 1956, Chrysler christened this model year \"PowerStyle\" and it was one of the design works of Virgil Exner. The New Yorker gained a new mesh grille, leather seats, pushbutton PowerFlite selector, and a V8 with 280 horsepower.
