Make it Bigger! 1955 Chrysler New Yorker Deluxe Sedan

March 14, 2014

The first Chrysler designs from Virgil Exner seem to be the best designs from his tenure, unlike Elwood Engel’s, as he seemed to have a knack for leaving before his designs became obscured by management pressure – or perhaps Engel just had a stronger personality. Either way, the 1955 Chrysler sedans were some of the most elegant, continental-looking designs coming from Detroit at the time. And while the coupes and the 300 letter cars have moved out of the realm of affordability, you can still occasionally find a sedan, which has 95% of the styling at 10% of the price. Or something like that. You can find this 1955 Chrysler New Yorker Deluxe sedan for sale for $3800 in Los Gatos, CA.
