Known History

Station wagons are quickly becoming some of the most collectable automobiles…Why?

Fewer wagons were built than their brother and sister sedans and coupes and perhaps even fewer were well cared for. Most ended up in junk yards when their use for transporting the family had expired. Sad-but true.

 

In 1955, Chrysler introduced the New Yorker Deluxe Station Wagon. Though production numbers seem to vary, most would agree that just over 1,000 of these grand station wagons were manufactured….some say 1,036 is the correct number. How many have actually survived is anyone’s guess, some believe only a hand-full; perhaps less than ten.

 

These cars were equipped with the 331 cubic inch Hemi engine developing 250 horse power; the same engine that powered the opulent 1955 Imperial coupe and the balance of the New Yorker line-up. These Wagons were the most expensive station wagons of their day selling for nearly $5,000.00; a rather hefty amount at the time!

 

 

This car:

 

This car is in simply superb order - the indicated 53,000 miles believed to be original. After looking at the car very carefully and driving it, one would almost have to conclude that the miles are indeed actual and correct. Everything on the car fits well, nothing shows excessive wear and the car runs and drives flawlessly; the interior is just as nice. The Photos that accompany this car simply do not lie; the car really is this clean.

 

The car was found in Studio City California. Rumor has it that a certain Cecil B. DeMille drove one of these Chrysler wagons and interestingly enough, there is a rather unique surprise mounted under the driver seat of this car indicating that it may have belonged to him, though DeMille’s ownership of this particular car has not yet been proven; it is still being researched.

 

This is an extraordinarily desirable and very rare Chrysler New Yorker Deluxe wagon, available for the first time in many years. The car is equipped with its optional clock and a set of 5 factory MotorRim and Wheel wire wheels.
