1957 CHRYSLER New Yorker Series, V-8

1957 CHRYSLER New Yorker Series, V-8

NEW YORKER SERIES — (8-CYL) — This top-of-the-line model featured the largest production car engine available in 1957. The Hemi engine's bore and stroke were increased. Displacement was raised nearly 10 percent. A narrow, dart-like color sweep distinguished the sides of the New Yorker. Cars with two-tone finish had the roof color added to the side trim area. Advertised as, “The most glamorous cars in a generation,” all body styles were included in this series. Dual rear antennas were a popular option that emphasized the sweep of the tailfins. Chrysler ‘firsts’ for 1957 included Torsion-Aire ride, completely concealed tailpipes, spool-like engine mounts and optional Captive-Aire tires on the New Yorker Town & Country station wagon (a spare tire was not provided on this model).
