Very few Chrysler New Yorker convertibles were made in 1957; the figure has been listed as only 1,049 examples, and they are obviously even rarer to see on the roads today.
The example here is unquestionably one of the nicest that will be available. It received a no-expense-spared, six-year restoration from a prior owner and is reported as being better than new, including its factory Sahara Blue color scheme. It is equipped with power steering, power brakes, wheel opening moldings, radio with rear speaker, dual antennas, FirePower Chrysler V-8 with a four-barrel carburetor, and all correct detailing in the engine bay.
Nineteen fifty-seven New Yorker Convertibles are exceptionally rare, and to find one in pristine condition is even more unusual. This high-quality example is ready for proud exhibition on the show circuit.
