1963 Chrysler New Yorker
Hardtop Sedan
1 of 593 made, the Chrysler New Yorker Salon was Chrysler's answer to the now separate brand, Imperial. It was as expensive as some Imperials! This is a 4 door hardtop that is unusually well optioned and equipped. The options include 3/4 vinyl roof, Kelsey Hayes wire wheel covers, leather interior, power windows, push button automatic transmission, and all of the Chrysler luxury equipment.
For 1963, the Chrysler New Yorker shared its (short) 215.3 inch wheelbase with the other less expensive Chrysler vehicles. Pricing for the New Yorker began at $3985 for the 4-door sedan and rose to $4,815 for the 9-passenger station wagon. Only the Chrysler 300J fetched a higher figure for Chrysler, demanding $5,260 for the 2-door hardtop coupe.

The Chrysler New Yorker featured an overhead valve V8 engine which displaced 413.8 cubic-inches and offered 340 horsepower (the same as the 1962 model). It was mated to an automatic gearbox and rode on 8.50 x 14 wheels. There was a thin beltline molding which ran the entire length of the vehicle. They had six trim bars, and a grille that was divided into two halves with egg-crate style inserts. Inside were Jacquard fabrics and vinyl trim. Body-styles included the sedan, hardtop sedan, and salon. A 6- and 9-passenger station wagon were also available on the New Yorker Series. The most popular bodystyle was the sedan which accounted for 14,884 sales. The 4-door salon was the most exclusive, with just 593 sales, followed by the 6-passenger wagon at just 950 vehicles sold.
