This top-of-the-line Model C56-2 New Yorker Deluxe Convertible is 1 of just 950 produced with fewer than 10 Model C56-2 Convertibles estimated to remain in existence. For 1953 every Chrysler was new from bumper to bumper and fifty new mechanical features were introduced. Advertising copy for 1953 described the New Yorker Deluxe Convertible as “The Most Beautiful Chrysler” with “The Finest Engineering.”
The Most Beautiful Chrysler was the result of the important appointment of Virgil Exner as Director of Advanced Styling in 1949 and his design influence pending the dramatic Forward Look designs Chrysler introduced in 1955.
The Finest Engineering was the result of Chrysler’s heritage of engineering innovation including the revolutionary FirePower 331 cubic inch HEMI V-8 engine with 180 horsepower which powered the New Yorker Deluxe models combined with the Fluid-Torque automatic transmission. This combination set multiple track and speed records.
This Chrysler New Yorker Deluxe Convertible is stunning and exquisite in its Pimento Red paint with rare optional Red Highlander Plaid and Red leather interior with Tan canvas power convertible top with glass rear window. It rides on its original stainless wire wheels with 8.20-15 Firestone bias 4-ply whitewall tires. It is equipped with power steering, power brakes, radio, clock, twin mirrors, and a rare Moparmatic Benrus 15-jewel steering wheel clock. It is accompanied by a complete set of dealer album, data book, brochures, and manuals, many of which were produced by the current owner’s graphic arts production company in Detroit, Michigan working with Chrysler and its agencies.
Attesting its condition and authenticity, the car was awarded with Best in Class at 2017 Concours of America (formerly Meadow Brook), First Place at 2017 National Chrysler Products Club National Meet, and 2017 Radnor Hunt Artist’s Award “for the epitome of design and style” .
The Most Beautiful Chrysler and The Finest Engineering resulted in Chrysler hitting an overall production record for 1953 which would not be surpassed until 1965. The 1953 Chrysler New Yorker Deluxe Convertible was Chrysler’s costliest model and stands as a magnificent top-of-the-line classic in the storied history of Chrysler Corporation.
This is a rare opportunity of acquiring a unique and very desirable car.
