Beautifully restored in original French Gray over red Highlander interior. Well optioned and finished to a very high standard. A particularly charming example of Chrysler’s early post-war flagship..
This handsome 1947 New Yorker convertible is a marvelous example of Chrysler’s stylish flagship. Highly-optioned, it features the distinct Highlander package and other desirable factory equipment. This car has a well-known history from new, being first sold in Montana and remaining with the original owner until the 1960s. From there, it passed into the hands of an enthusiast and collector who had the foresight to preserve the car, enjoying it sparingly and carefully over the next 32 years. In the early 2000s, it received a comprehensive restoration finished to a very high standard. The process included a full rebuilding of the mechanical and electrical components, as well as a body and interior restoration finished in the original colors of French Gray over Highlander tartan cloth and dark red leather.
The current owners have continued to cherish and care for the car, and the restoration has mellowed gently with care and enjoyment. The warm shade of French Gray suits the shape beautifully, and the paintwork remains in excellent condition for its age. During the restoration, all of the original stainless trim was removed and polished, and all of the chrome replated at considerable expense. Like the paint, the brightwork is lovely and crisp. The car rides on correct-style wide whitewall tires and steel wheels with full deluxe trim wheel covers. Accenting the gray paint is a beautiful burgundy canvas top, making this Chrysler equally handsome with the top up or down.
