William Oliver posted shots of this ’62 Chrysler New Yorker wagon working on its tan, which is coming along quite well. This would be the last year that a Chrysler was built with the 126″ wheelbase, which had been the norm for New Yorkers since the Forward Look cars arrived in 1957. And hardtop wagons would be gone in two more years too.
The fins finally disappeared for 1962, after hanging around for a bit too long. There’s only one engine listed for the new Yorker this year, a 340 hp version of the EB 413 V8. Plenty of power for the job. A wagon of epic proportions. Pump up those tires, listen to the 413 come back to life, push D, and take off.
