Weekend Edition Quick Hit – A 1972 Chrysler New Yorker with 36,000 Original Miles…

Fullscreen capture 752014 94902 AM.bmp Continuing on with our Weekend Edition where I highlight Amurican Iron from the 70’s because it’s Independence Day Weekend, and what is more American than large Automobiles? This is a 1972 Chrysler New Yorker Brougham living in the San Francisco Bay Area of California, and what a magnificent beast it is… but would you call it your own? Fullscreen capture 752014 94858 AM.bmp This is a very fine example of the Chrysler Fuselage Era that spanned between 1969 and 1973. The term Fuselage referred to the shape of the overall look, which was suppose to resemble the Fuselage of an airliner. From what I gathered, this was not very successful with respect to sales, as it really didn’t catch on with buyers. However, these remain some of my favorite full sized cars, with unique styling elements that you wouldn’t see in full sized GM or Fords.

No rust, a couple of minor door dings are the only issues with the exterior, new white wall tires and original hubcaps. Fully loaded with all available options!!!!!!!
