Wagon collectors, have we a cargo-hauling rarity for you! Check out this 1953 Chrysler New Yorker Town & Country Station Wagon. From the Black Hawk Collection, on a California Title with mileage affiant at 92,884, however speedo/ODO is inoperable.
Dressed in Caravan Beige over Cocoa Brown Metallic, this car's original appearing paint is in overall satisfactory condition but there are multiple spots and other, various blemishes visible. Some of the chrome trim exhibits some pitting as well. There is, however, a crack in the passenger-side front vent window. The wagon's bodywork is straight and solid, the chrome wraparound bumpers fit tightly to the body and look great. The engine bay is very tidy and the cargo area with wooden flooring and sides looks great. This model has reverse lights.
This wagon rolls on older Remington's Cushion-Aire wide whitewall bias-ply tires, size L78-15 showing their age. Each tire is mounted on a steel wheel and topped by a factory wheel cover. The wheel covers are in good, original order as are the tires.
Under the hood is an original 331 CID Hemi Firepower V-8 engine that appears to have been rebuilt it has a new wiring harness installed0. It is matched to a most unusual dance partner, a M6 Presto-Matic two-speed semi-automatic transmission with a 3.54:1 rear end. Don't let the clutch pedal or the shift quadrants, DLNR, fool you. The shift lever was column-mounted and has three positions: Low (in the “2nd” position of a conventional three-speed manual unit), High (in the “3rd” position), and Reverse (same as the three-speed) oil bath lid is missing. The clutch had to be depressed every time the gear shift lever was moved. This configuration had the effect of providing four gear ratios:
· Underdrive Low, 3.57:1
· Low 2.04:1
· Underdrive High, 1.75:1
· High, 1:1
Driver convenience features include power, four-wheel drum brakes.
Inside, the wagon retains its original cloth, leather, wood and chrome interior. This example has an interior that mirrors its outside, tan and brown cloth with leather and that leather has a unique ‘alligator' or ‘crocodile' pattern. The front and rear bench seats look great, as does the tan headliner above. The tan carpeting is in good, original order. A plastic-rimmed, three-spoke steering wheel has aged well but is not flawless. The two-tone metal instrument panel comes with a full array of gauges. It and inner door panels are all in very good order. In back are a pair of ingress/egress assist handles on the back of the front bench along with an ashtray. A column-mounted shift lever and a factory AM radio complete the interior. The rear wood is in outstanding condition and is a site to behold with the rear seat in the down position.
The 1953 New Yorker had a less bulky look with the wheelbase reduced to 125.5 inches, a one-piece curved windshield and rear fenders integrated into the body. Wire wheels were now an option. The Saratoga line was dropped in 1953, 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.
Competition to this New Yorker in 1953 included Buick's Series 50 Super Estate Wagon, DeSoto's Firedome V-8 Wagon, Dodge's Coronet Sierra Wagon, Mercury's Eight Station Wagon and Pontiac's Chieftain DeLuxe Station Wagon.
Wagons have really become popular, so we don't expect this one to linger. With some touch-ups and attention, it could really be a standout at a cruise night or local car show. Stop by MotoeXotica Classic Cars today to check out this Mopar survivor that is older than Torqueflite!
