1949 Chrysler New Yorker Highlander

This unique, clean title, California current licensed, daily driver, barn find, is the first postwar all-new styling change for Chrysler, being Chrysler's 25th Anniversary model. It was number 5,947 off the assembly line, and comes with the factory “Build Card”, being originally sold by Verne Orr Motors, located in Pasadena, CA. The paint is the original enamel Pearl Tan, and the interior is the original, intact, wonderful condition Highlander Trim; seats, headliner, carpet, peddles complete and clean. The dash has the radio (attention needed), clock, lighter heater controls (attention needed). The strong running “Spitfire” 323.5 cubic inch 135-hp Flathead inline-eight is paired with the four speed "Prestomatic" fluid drive transmission, which has two forward ranges, each with two speeds. It shifts great and is fun and interesting to drive, with or without using the clutch. Headlamps work, turn signals work, brake lights work, ignition key light works, windshield wiper motor works. Drive or trailer away.
