Throughout the 1950s and early 1960s, Chrysler's New Yorker Town & Country was America's ultimate prestige station wagon. Prices were astronomical - over $5,000 - but the New Yorker represented the pinnacle of the wagon-making craft. Few were built but the T&C was highly regarded for its imposing style, luxurious appointments and impressive 'road car' performance.

The Town & Country was completely redesigned for 1960, with airy 'pillarless hardtop' styling, soaring tailfins and new 'Unibody' construction. the 1961 restyle was equally eye-catching, featuring dramatically canted quad headlamps flanking a 'retro-classic' grille design.

The wagon features pushbutton three-speed TorqueFlite transmission, dual Quad Cross Ram induction, 413 cubic-inch V8 engine producing 375 horsepower, with dual front and rear air conditioning, power door locks, windows, seats, antenna and is fitted with a Sure Grip differential.

The vehicle rides on a 126-inch wheelbase, weighs 4,455 pounds, is 18 feet, 4-inches long and sold for approximately $6,000. For 1961, there were 760 examples of the 9-passenger Town & country wagon produced.

This Chrysler New Yorker was a special order by Arthur Knorr, New York city Broadway director/producer responsible for Milton Berle's Texaco Star Theater from 1948-1952, and the Miss America, Miss universe and USA pageants.

Delivered with four Goodyear 'Captive-Air' tires, each having a distinct inner liner air chamber and separate air pressure, there was no need for a spare. Chrysler hardtop wagons (no B-pillar) had a five-year production run from 1960 until 1964. This is one of the 760 nine-passenger 1961 wagons produced and this was the last year for the Exner fins.
