Superb '49 Chrysler goes to auction

1949 Chrysler New Yorker.

With a mere 31,000 miles on the grille, this superbly original Chrysler was imported into the UK in 1952 and was first registered in the UK on September 1, 1952 and driven to London where it was used as a family car until 1959.

The New Yorker was then taken to Belfast where it was stored for eight years before returning to England in 1967 where, once again, it was put into storage. In 1987, the car was re-commissioned and began a 'new lease of life' having at that stage covered a mere 28,000 miles with the buff log book still available. The current vendor purchased the car from Historics in June 2010 and has had immense enjoyment from the car. Sadly, due to lack of space, he is no longer able to store the car and has decided to let a new owner enjoy it. Described as being both 'interesting and fun' to drive, the fluid-drive transmission operates as it should.
