Welcome to another Hooniverse Wagon Wednesday, and while this is British Week, I thought this particular Chrysler wagon trumped anything British for this feature. This car is pure, unadulterated, 60s Chrysler quirkiness. You get a last year Chrysler Hardtop Wagon body style, a Square Steering Wheel, the Push-Button Transmission Selector, the whinny of the Chrysler gear-reduction starter, almost every option available from Chrysler at the time, and the last year that Chrysler exhibited Virgil Exner styling. So, lets take a look at the most un-British car that will be profiled during British Week.
I found this car within Hemmings, and what a find. It is a Chrysler New Yorker Wagon in its original factory condition, and according to the listing:
An amazing car that has to be seen in person to believe, only 3,779 actual miles were ever put on this never restored 100% original four-door hardtop wagon since new. Finished in the factory applied Dune beige with an incredible Tan vinyl interior, it’s equipped with the venerable 413 cubic inch V8, with popular options of the day including push button automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, air conditioning and radio. Owners manual, dealer brochures, magazine article, history of ownership and verification of mileage are included. Possibly the finest original low mileage wagon in the world…
With this low mileage, in the condition as it left the factory, the asking price is a bit steep at $44,500. Is that too much for this pristine wagon with more personality than anything you could buy today? See the listing here.
