It's what's inside that counts, right? This 1953 Chrysler New Yorker Town & Country Station Wagon listed here on craigslist and parked in Frederick, Colorado and is priced at $10,800 and the inside has a lot going for it. According to the owner this is a 5 door wagon (series C56-1) and supposedly there were only 1,242 produced.
How about this wood and stainless steel? It looks absolutely fantastic with this combination, let's just hope everything is still here!
Here is the 331 hemi V8 mated to an automatic 4 Speed Fluid-Matic which has a “Safety Clutch” feature, which is similar to a torque limiter. The car is said to be running and driving with new master cylinder, brakes, clutch, fuel pump, ball joints up front, battery and a new set of Cooper tires.
The car has the original paint, we don't know the color code. You could get away with leaving it as is, but wouldn't it look great with some new paint?
Here you have NOS carpet, seat covers, new headliner and the original Wagon-Radio is said to work.
Included with this purchase is an original Chrysler shop manual, sales brochure, extra power steering unit, grill, stainless trim, generators and a few other parts. The owner says that this car has rock solid floors, body, rockers, etc. We have seen restored units go for as much as $50K. What are your thoughts, paint and re-chrome, or just keep her as a big cool grocery getter?
