Here is a one owner 1964 Chrysler New Yorker 9 passenger hardtop found on Hemmings with a price of $25,000 that is in original and near pristine condition. Seeing the beautiful pillarless design make one wonder why this was the last year of the hardtop wagon. Loaded with the luxurious options of the day, the New Yorker’s white interior is roomy and looks fantastic with the black exterior. The headliner and plastic bows are described as new as is the black plastic steering wheel. The rubber weatherstripping is soft, supple and crack free. The factory air conditioning is said to blow cold and all the gauges are also in working order.
Nothing is harder to maintain than black paint but the original factory black exterior is a testament to how well the New Yorker has been maintained over the years. The chrome, mouldings and exterior script is also original and appears to be near perfect.
Mechanically the powerful New Yorker has a 413ci wedge engine matched with a pushbutton Tourqueflight transmission. The owner says the car still has plenty of power for highway cruising and he even will use it to transport his boat with ease.
With only 1,603 9-passenger New Yorkers produced in 1964 there can’t be too many left and there certainly can’t be too many as original as this one.
