The carmaker used the same engine as the previous model years, namely a 413 (6.8-liter) unit with 340 horsepower. The output remained unchanged until 1965, when Chrysler launched a new-generation New Yorker.
If you want a closer look at the New Yorker, the 1963 model posted this week on Craigslist is probably the best option, especially as it's a survivor that never lost its original magic. It's a true survivor with everything in nearly mint condition, sporting a great paint condition, and everything in working condition.
The seller describes it as a time capsule, so in theory, the New Yorker is all-original, unmolested, and unrestored. It's almost impossible to believe this car has never been restored, especially given its overall shape.
The car was parked in a barn in 1993 and has been sitting ever since. It looks amazing for a vehicle sitting for three decades, and the no-rust condition suggests that the barn was a perfect home for a classic car. It was pulled from the long tenure in storage two months ago, and now it looks for a new home.
This New Yorker has the same 413 V8 under the hood, and unsurprisingly considering its shape, it starts and runs properly.
The provided images show the car on a trailer, and while we don't get a closer look at the floors and the trunk, I believe you won't find any rust there. The car looks impeccable for a model its age, and considering it spent such a long time in storage, the previous owners knew precisely what they were doing when caring for this Chrysler – this is one of the questions you should ask before committing to a purchase; how many people owned this car before getting pulled from the barn not long ago?
The owner does not reveal how complete the car continues to be, but given it's a time capsule, I assume everything is still in place.
The price makes perfect sense for this New Yorker, despite a 1963 model not being a desirable classic today. The seller wants to let the car go if someone wants to pay $10,000. If you want to see it in person, you must go to Sacramento. The vehicle won't move anytime soon, and while you should be able to drive it home on its wheels, bringing a trailer is a much better option if you want to preserve its current condition.
