1953 Chrysler New Yorker

For 1953, Chrysler no longer offered the Saratoga series. It was replaced by the New Yorker on the Windsor wheelbase of 125.5-inches. The Newport, convertible, and sedan body styles continued on the New Yorker and were joined by a Club Coupe, Town & Country Wagon, and a long-wheelbase, 8-passenger Sedan. The engine remained the same - a 331.1 cubic-inch unit with hemispherical combustion chambers and overhead valves offering 180 horsepower. A 'V' insignia was placed on the rear decklid and on the hood to denote the Hemi engine. Although the engine remained the same as in prior years, a five percent reduction in overall weight helped improve the performance of the V-8 Chryslers.

Chrysler also offered the New Yorker Deluxe Series, which was the top-of-the-line model. It came with an additional body style, the convertible coupe, and did not include the Town & Country station wagon.

The Deluxe Series had upgraded upholstery, and optional wire wheels, and air conditioning. A Fluid Drive (also known as Fluid-Torque Drive) was standard until it was replaced mid-year by a PowerFlite automatic transmission.
