Today’s Car is a 1949 Chrysler New Yorker 4 door sedan done in Ensign Blue. It was not fast, or flashy or cutting edge, but the 1949 Chrysler New Yorker was as sturdy as a rock!!! Powered by a inline 8 cylinder (spitfire), displacement: 323.5 cu – 5.3L, Horse power: 135HP, torque: 270 lb-ft., top speed: 86 mph and acceleration: 0- 60 mph in 21.4 seconds. Transmissions were either a 2-speed automatic or a 4-speed semi-automatic transmission. This is a great driver and maybe a mostly original survivor. Nice.
Thanks to Sandy Bettelman for sharing this 1949 Chrysler New Yorker that he spotted in Brentwood, CA. Thanks for riding along. Frank
