As you can see, this is a 1965 Chrysler New Yorker.
I purchased this car about 2 years ago from the original owner who took excellent care of it. I
was originally looking for something smaller and more recent, like maybe a late
60's or early 70's Charger, but once I saw this car I was sold. The interior is
literally like new, and the exterior has no rust which is really amazing for a
New Jersey car.
This car is equipped with a 413 4bbl, and has just turned 102,000 miles.
In the next photo you can see dual exhausts sticking out, and this is the only
modification that I've made. The dual exhaust took 48 feet of pipe, 24 per side.
Every summer I drive this car down the New Jersey Parkway to spend weekends at
the beach, and on the way down people will race up along side and give a thumbs
up. One guy even held up a little American flag.
Despite the years and the miles, this car has given me less trouble then most of the new cars that I've owned. I've also entered it in a few local car shows. I couldn't be happier with
You still see relatively lots of second and third generation Chargers, but few to no 1965 Chryslers! Good choice.
Crusin' down the New Jersey Parkway in a 1965 Chrysler New Yorker. Life is good!
That sounds like a candidate for a Bruce Springsteen song, too. :-)
At 102,000 miles the 413 is just getting broken in. You'll have years of turnpike crusing ahead with that beauty.
