The New Yorker provides us with a nice history of Chrysler’s postwar luxury ambitions, and examples demonstrating various facets of this history are plentiful in self-service wrecking yards. We’ve seen this ’53, this ’64, this ’82, this ’85, this ’89, this ’90, and this ’92 so far, and today were adding another K-car-based New Yorker to the collection.
Sure, it’s a K-car (actually, it’s an E-car, which was an extended-wheelbase K), but that doesn’t mean that Lee Iacocca scrimped on the glitz!
Check it out, genuine Wire-Like™ wheels!
Cushy leather seats, naturally.
Futuristic “Message Center.”
Even more futuristic computer.
Padded landau roof.
Detailed by a garbage truck.
You’ll sit in the lap of luxury.
Power in this one came courtesy of the Mitsubishi Astron 2.6 liter four-cylinder engine, the same family of engines that powered the Starion and Raider.
