Cruisin' Classics is proud to present to you this rare beauty that is a 1951 Chrysler New Yorker convertible. This stunning piece of automotive history has a massive 331 Hemi under the hood, backed by a fluid-torque drive transmission. If you have never driven one of these, they are quite unique. They have a Safety Clutch, which you use to change from neutral to reverse or neutral to forward gear. You can then start the car off like you would a manual, and then come to a stop while in gear without using the clutch. They are very fun to drive and actually have more power than you would expect from any 1951. The convertible top is Power, and functions as it should. All windows roll down with ease. The paint and chrome are both driver quality but very presentable. Let's dive a little further into this beauty.


The odometer reads 70,293 miles.

This 51' is a great candidate to be taken to the next level or enjoyed as it sits. It has older single stage paint, that is a good driver quality. The interior appears that it has been restored and is in great condition. The New Yorker is full of class as well as power. In 1951, one was used as a pace car for the Indianapolis 500. This would be a good entry level car for one looking for a clean and solid New Yorker without spending $75,000. It runs excellent, and drives just as good as it looks.
