1963 Chrysler New Yorker Station Wagon
I have a Chrysler New Yorker station wagon (six passenger) from 1963. Here in Sweden this is one of two still remaining cars. It is the original 413 and push button transmission.
I've found some historical notes of the car: it is registered in Sweden June 12, 1963 and sold June 18, 1963 to the glue company Casco, in Stockholm. They used the car for an unknown purpose to 1968, when a director Jan Pettersson bought it. After that different owners had it and 1972 the engine was renovated by a company in Skovde, with new pistons and bearings. Everything on it seems quite original with matching numbers on engine, gearbox, rear axle and carb. In the mid 1980's the car was painted in a red and salmon pearl, but the previous owner painted the matt-black color in 2000. The car had not been driven between 1985 to 2001.
You don't see many of these wagons, even in the U.S. The last one I saw was pictured on a Web site that showed it in action in a demolition derby, unfortunately!
Enjoy your neat Mopar!
