1942 Chrysler New Yorker
Stock #: 1550 Interior Color: Tan Body Type: Coupe Transmission: 4-Speed Automatic Engine: 291 V-8 HEMI DESOTO Title Condition: Clear Vehicle Description 1942 Chrysler New Yorker Custom build by Berry's Rod Shop no expenses were spared. The Chrysler Eights had the same general styling as the sixes with slightly longer front end sheet metal. Small chrome signatures on the rear side of the hood under the beltline trim identified the car as New Yorkers. New Yorkers had upscale interiors with front carpets clocks and folding rear seat armrests. The New York Special model was originally introduced as a distinct sub-series of the 1938 Chrysler Imperi...al. It was available in 1938 as a four-door sedan with a 298.7 CID straight-eight engine and a generous amount of comfort and space to the passengers (series C19). For 1939 it was expanded with two more coupe versions and a two-door sedan and a larger more powerful engine. Now the C23 series it took on the New Yorker name dropping the Special tag. With America entering World War II on 7 December 1941 all automobile production came to an end at the beginning of February 1942. Thus the 1942 model year was roughly half the normal length. Cars built after December 1941 had blackout trim. The 1942s were quite modern of a design which was heralding the post-war ponton style with fenders more incorporated into the bodywork. The grille consisted of five horizontal chrome bars which wrapped around the front reaching all the way to the leading edge of the front wheelhouses. Chrysler would produce and experiment with engines for tanks and aircraft during World War II. One post-war application of this would lead to the creation of the first generation Hemi of the 1950s.
