1949 Chrysler New Yorker Highlander

Just took it out for a spring time drive to town yesterday and it was lovely, healthy, cruising. Daily driver, very good unrestored original condition, clean title, California current licensed. Drive or trailer away. This is the first postwar all-new styling change for Chrysler, being Chrysler's 25th Anniversary model. No major rust anywhere. The paint is the original enamel Pearl Tan, and the interior is the original, intact, great condition Highlander Trim. The strong running "Spitfire" 323.5 cubic inch 135-hp Flathead inline-eight is paired with the four speed "Prestomatic" fluid drive transmission, made for “stately driving”. It shifts great and is fun to drive, with or without using the clutch. Wonderful complete interior; seats, headliner, carpet, peddles great condition. The interior has the radio, clock (both need attention). Headlamps, lighter, turn signals, brake lights, ignition key light, windshield wiper motor, Heater fan all work. Maintenance work includes new: battery, speedometer housing and cable, vacuum advance chamber, spark plugs, differential front seal, starter commutator end plate, windshield wiper blades, brake shoes, wheel cylinders, hoses. Tuned up. Oil changes ; engine, transmission, rear end. Lubed grease points. I have replacement heater box/coil, thermostat body, thermostat all on hand for new owner to install. It was number 5,947 off the assembly line, and comes with the factory "Build Card. Sold as is, all sales finial, no returns. Car is to be removed within two weeks of sale.
