New Yorker Series Convertible
Chassis #: 7404990
Engine #: C39-46357
Sold for $104,500 at 2017 RM Auctions : Amelia Island.
Sold for $143,000 at 2017 Bonhams : Quail Lodge.
The convertible, built on the New Yorker's 127.5-inch wheelbase, was longer than the sedan. It also came equipped with all the New Yorker standard equipment including the five-main-bearing 135 brake horsepower straight-eight engine, Prestomatic Fluid Drive transmission, and an electric clock.

Between 1946 through 1948, a total of 8,368 examples of the New Yorker Town and Country convertibles were built.

When the new-design second-series line was introduced in 1949, the Town and Country sedan was no longer available. For 1950 the model retreated to an eight-cylinder hardtop coupe with painted metal insert panels.

This example has been repainted in correct Yellow Lustre. The wood is entirely original, and some of the brightwork has been re-plated. The body has never been apart.

This convertible has a dashboard clock, Prestomatic transmission, a radio, heater-defroster, dual cowl-mounted side mirrors, driver's side spotlight, exhaust extension, seatbelts, factory wheel covers, wide whitewall tires, and center bumper guard. It also has a power-operated top, the fabric of which is tan canvas. Currently, the odometer shows 44,000 miles, which are believed to be correct.
