1974 Chrysler New Yorker New Yorker Brougham
What we have here is my 1974 Chrysler New Yorker Brougham St. Regis. It is triple white—white paint white vinyl top and white interior. Pretty close to all original. Very nice considering it is 41 years old and unrestored. Runs and drives well. 84000 Miles. Has the 440 V-8. Original carburetor is gone and it has what appears to be a Holley in its place. Seems to run well. Does not leak all over the place. I believe it has some sort of aftermarket mufflers on it because it has a nice rumble to it. Sounds good. Has a new alternator and new battery. Starts runs drives and stops well. Drives surprisingly nice for its age. Transmission shifts smooth. Interior is extremely nice for its age and clean. Seats are almost perfect except for a couple of small splits one on the driver’s seat and one on the back passenger side seat. Dash is very nice no cracks. Headliner is clean but has a couple small splits. Could be stitched up easily. Has the original AM/ FM/ 8 Track. 8 Track player still works but radio only gets reception on a few stations. Paint looks to be mostly original from what I can tell. Has its fair share of dings chips and thin spots in the paint as you would expect from 41 years of use but still looks presentable and turns plenty of heads. Bottom edge of the trunk lid and bottom of the doors are rusted through but other than that it is pretty solid. Back edge of the trunk lid appears to have been painted as well as the plastic bumper filler pieces and inside door jambs. Disclosures-- Heater core had a small pinhole leak and has been bypassed. Did not bother me enough to fix it because it is not driven in the winter. A/C system is complete but does not blow ice cold. Compressor still turns on when you activate the A/C but does not produce cold air. Freon is probably low and needs to be topped off. Does not have the conversion fittings on it so I assume it is still running R-12. Blower motor resistor is bad and has been wired in direct with a toggle switch. Tires are an older matched set of Michelins. They still have plenty of tread on them. Driver side door keyhole is finicky sometimes and takes some wiggling of the key to work. Passenger side keyhole works just fine. Fuel gauge does not work reads empty all the time. Vinyl top has a few small splits and is slightly pulling away from the windshield. Passenger side valve cover seeps a little oil. Leaks onto the exhaust manifold. All of these issues are relatively minor none of which really hinder the drive ability of the car but regardless I wanted them known so you know what you are getting. There are a lot of extra parts in the trunk that will be included with the sale. If there is anything else you need to know do not hesitate to ask I am very honest. I will get back to you as soon as I can. A $500 nonrefundable deposit is due within 48 hours of auction end. The balance is to be paid in cash upon pickup. Any shipping arrangements are to be made by the buyer. Vehicle is located in and will be available for pickup in Shorewood Illinois near I-55 and I-80.
