ACME – 1/18 Scale – 1956 Chrysler New Yorker St Regis in Black and White Diecast Scale Model Replica
The Chrysler New Yorker is an automobile model which was produced by Chrysler from 1940 to 1996, serving for several years as the brand’s flagship model. A trim level named the “New York Special” first appeared in 1938 and the “New Yorker” name debuted in 1939. Until its discontinuation in 1996, the New Yorker had made its mark as the longest-running American car nameplate.
In 1955, Chrysler did away with the out of fashion high roofline designs of K.T. Keller and came out with a new sedan that borrowed styling cues from Virgil Exner’s custom 1952 Imperial Parade Phaeton. The hemi engine produces 250 hp (186 kW) this year. The result would become an ongoing trend for increasing engine output throughout the next two decades with Chrysler and its rival competitors. The Powerflite transmission was controlled by a lever on the instrument panel.
