1976 Chrysler New Yorker 400 from North America


I love this old car, going in the derby again next year


Well, We put this old girl through a demolition derby 3 times now. Its won the derby twice. This last time we put it in, the rad got knocked out, and the rear tires blew out. So not wanting to wreck my old tank, I just shut her off and waited for the rest of the guys to finish. After the derby was over, we towed it home and parked it. Last weekend, being bored with nothing else to do, I went and threw a set of boosters on it, and it fired like nothing. So I found a new rad for it back in the junk pile, and put some old tires on the back end. All this week I used it to pull the manure wagon hahaha.

General Comments:

Fast, Comfortable old boat, Never fails to amaze me.

1976 Chrysler New Yorker Brougham 400 from North America


Surely one of the best cars ever built


Minor problems:

Rlectric windows failed after about 100,000 miles (and countless times that children played with them).

A/C repair work after about 10 years.

The interior still looks good, minor fading due to sun exposure.

Some cracking of the vinyl roof after 15 years.

No failure of engine or body due to initial construction, just minor wear, as might be expected after 25 years as my primary transportation.

General Comments:

Still runs great. The engine and transmission are in good shape, and it is still fast and smooth to handle on the road.

It is still a luxury ride, it is too good to replace, so I'm having it repainted for the first time!

I know this is a very old review.

Arguably one of the most attractive designs in automotive history.

Just too bad they seemed to be made out of paper mache.

Never understood why they were unibody. Too big and heavy of a car.
