ACME A1809003 – 1/18 Scale Chrysler New Yorker St Regis (Surf Green Poly) in Cloud White & Mint Green 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.
Chrysler christened the 1956 model year’s design “PowerStyle,” a product of prolific Chrysler designer Virgil Exner. The New Yorker gained a new mesh grille, leather seats, pushbutton PowerFlite selector, and a 354 cubic inch Hemi V8 with 280 hp (209 kW). Also new for 1956, Chrysler introduced an under-dash mounted 16 2/3 rpm record player, dubbed the “Highway Hi-Fi”, manufactured by CBS Electronics. A two way switch in the dash changed the input for the speaker from the all transistor radio to the 7 inch record player. The St. Regis two-door hardtop gave a unique three-tone paint job for a higher price and the Town and Country Wagon model was Chrysler’s most expensive vehicle of 1956 at $4,523. This was the first year for the New Yorker four-door pillarless hardtop. Only 921 convertibles were made.
