UP FOR AUCTION IS MY 1955 CHRYSLER NEW YORKER DELUXE THAT NEEDS IT'S RESTORATION TO BE RE-STARTED AFTER 27 YEARS IN STORAGE.

THERE WERE 946 BUILT IN 1955 AND ONLY 15-20 STILL EXIST. I HAVE SCOURED THE WEB AND KNOW WHERE MOST OF THEM RESIDE. ONE IN CANADA. ONE IN HOLLAND. ERNEST HEMMINGWAY'S IN CUBA. AND THE REST SEEM TO BE IN AMERICA.

THIS CAR IS THE DESIRABLE NUGGET GOLD WITH FULL LEATHER INTERIOR IN GOLD AND WHITE. THE SIDE SPEAR HAD PLATINUM WHITE FOR THE TWO-TONE. THE CAR HAS A VERY OLD BLACK TOP ON IT. NOT SURE IF IT WAS ORDERED WHITE OR BLACK.

I HAVE SEEN SOME FULLY RESTORED ONES THAT GOT VARIOUS FINISHES AND DETAILS WRONG. BUT THIS CAR RETAINS IT'S ORIGINALITY. THE ONLY MISTAKE APPEARS TO BE THE OLD BLUE PAINT ON THE ENGINE. OBVIOUSLY DONE BY A PREVIOUS OWNER WHO DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE SILVER. THE CAR RETAINS IT'S CORRECT 4 BARREL CARB AND AIRCLEANER. THE TRANSMISSION IS A 2 SPEED POWERFLIGHT.

THE CAR WAS TAKEN APART FOR RESTORATION IN 1987 AND THE BODY WAS JIGGED FOR REMOVAL (ANGLE IRON FRAME STILL WELDED INSIDE).
THE CAR'S BODY WAS PUT ON A ROTISSERIE. SANDBLASTED THE FLOORS AND ROT REMOVAL BEGUN. THE CHASSIS WAS STEAM-CLEANED AND SENT OUT FOR EXHAUST FITTING. WHEN THE MONEY RAN OUT. IT WAS PUT BACK ON IT'S CHASSIS WHERE IS REMAINS TODAY.

THE CAR WAS SPRAYED WITH A CLEAR PRESERVATIVE BEFORE IT WENT ON THE CHASSIS. BUT SURFACE RUST APPEARS ON THE SANDBLASTED AREAS. THE CHASSIS WAS SOLID. THE TRUNK FLOOR APPEARS TO BE SOLID.

INCLUDED IN THE SALE ARE 4 NEW WHITEWALL TIRES SIZED FOR THE OPTIONAL WIRE WHEELS. NEW CUSTOM BUILT STAINLESS STEEL EXHAUST FROM BORLA EAST (APPROX. $1. 00 VALUE). A NEW CHROME STRIP FOR THE FRONT GRILLE AREA EMBOSSED WITH THE WORD "CHRYSLER". HEMI TUNE UP PARTS. AND BRAND NEW POWER ACCESSORY AND BODY WIRING HARNESSES FROM NARRAGANSETT WIRING. THE MAIN ENGINE COMPARTMENT WIRING HARNESS IS THE ORIGINAL AND SHOULD BE REPLACED.

ALL OF THE PARTS REMOVED HAVE BEEN STORED IN BOXES  INDOORS  SINCE 1987. THIS INCLUDES THE SEATS. DOOR PANELS WITH ALL OF THEIR TRIM. nbsp; BODY SIDE MOLDINGS. DASH AND INSTRUMENTS. RADIO. SILL PLATES. REAR QUARTER UPHOLSTERY PANELS . NICE ORIGINAL "TWIN TOWER"  TAILLIGHTS. AND ORIGINAL BUMPER JACK SET.

THE DOORS. POWER SEAT FRAME. STEERING WHEEL/COLUMN/POWERBOX. GAS TANK. BUMPERS AND RADIATOR WERE STORED INSIDE THE CAR UNDER COVER.

THIS CAR IS AN EXCELLENT CANDIDATE FOR A FULL RESTORATION. EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE THERE.   I DIDN'T CHECK ALL OF THE SMALL BAGS OF PARTS TO SEE IF ANYTHING IS MISSING. MOSTLY TRIM AND BOLTS IN BAGS. THE RARE CHROME MOLDING ON THE TOP HEADER BOW IS STILL ON THERE AND THE GLASS IS IN GOOD CONDITION. THE TINTED WINDSHIELD LOOKS GOOD. HOOD ORNAMENT IS MISSING.


THERE IS NO TITLE. SOLD ON BILL OF SALE ONLY. I HAVE OWNED THIS CAR FOR OVER 14 YEARS.


ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE ASK BEFORE BUYING.


BUYER MUST ARRANGE SHIPPING FOR THE CAR AND THE BOXES OF PARTS.   A  $500 PAYPAL  DEPOSIT IS DUE WITHIN 48 HOURS OF AUCTIONS END.
ONCE CAR IS COMPLETELY PAID FOR. IT CAN STAY HERE UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO PICK IT UP. BUT SHOULD GO BEFORE IT GETS SNOWED IN!
