Chrysler's Airflow models had been aerodynamically advanced, yet its styling was controversial and proved to be unsuccessful in attracting customers. Through the late 1930s, Chrysler focused on building more conventional models to re-establish the company in the post-Depression era.

This Chrysler New Yorker Highlander Convertible was produced in 1940, and that was the only year that this was a separate model rather than a trim offering. The Highlander name was sourced from its plaid cloth used on the seats, door panels, and on the top boot.

The first owner of this car was Edwin F. Miles of San Francisco. The car remained in his care for 33 years. The second owner, Mr. Russ Parker of California, took possession in 1973. Mr. Parker would keep the car for 36 years and used it minimally. In the 1990s, Mr. Parker moved to Arizona, and so did the car. The car was given a thorough and correct restoration in 2000. At the time, the car was a totally unmolested original car. The restoration work was completed in 2003.

In 2009, the present owner, a resident of Arizona, purchased the car.

In 2010, this car was offered for sale at Gooding & Company's Scottsdale Auction in Arizona. It was estimated to sell for $75,000 - $100,000. The lot was sold for the sum of $48,400, inclusive of buyer's premium.
