Cohort Pic(k) Of The Day: ’76-’78 Chrysler New Yorker – The Imperial, Rechristened

Here’s one more find by canadiancatgreen at the Cohort. Just one view this time, but I think one should suffice for this Chrysler New Yorker 2-door Hardtop; particularly when the skirts and vinyl top are so clearly in view. Very Broughamtastic.

Of course, this ’76-’78 New Yorker (4-door hardtop above) is just a repurposed ’74-’75 Imperial. We know Chrysler had been giving up on the Imperial marque for quite a while before officially adopting it as a New Yorker. And let’s not deny it, in its last years casual onlookers would be hard-pressed to tell an Imperial from a New Yorker. Why pretend anymore?

Yet, the Imperial story is one that CC has followed through the years, and one last survivor, even in New Yorker guise is worth revisiting.
