DESCRIPTION
The 1957 Chrysler New Yorker, designed by Virgil Exner, is a classic car that captures the essence of 1950s style and charm. Its sleek lines and bold design reflect an era of automotive excellence.

The exterior of the 1957 Chrysler New Yorker features a large, chrome-accented front grille, distinctive tailfins, and a striking hood ornament. The car is typically painted in vibrant colors, reflecting the flamboyant spirit of the time.

This specific car, painted in Indian Turquoise, was originally purchased by Robert F. Gaugler of Cherryville, PA, in 1957. It was driven sparingly and last registered in 1972, with only 36,000 original miles on the odometer. The car was stored in a garage until 2002 when it was purchased by Byron Shoemaker of Allentown, PA.

During his ownership, this Chrysler had extensive maintenance performed, including new seals, exhaust system, relined gas tank, rebuilt generator, and fluid flush and replacement. Despite its age, the car remains in remarkably original condition. The bodywork is straight and well-preserved, with consistent and attractive paint. The exterior trim and brightwork are also in outstanding original order, beautifully preserved and remarkably straight.

Inside, the interior of the 1957 Chrysler New Yorker is incredibly well-preserved and original, aside from the door arm rests. The upholstery is in excellent original condition, reflecting the careful use and maintenance the car has received since it was new.

Under the hood, the car is powered by a massive 325 HP Hemi engine, delivering ample horsepower and torque for its time. The engine is paired with a push-button transmission, providing a comfortable and effortless driving experience. The car runs and drives exceptionally well, with its original touch still intact.

This specific unrestored 1957 Chrysler New Yorker is one of the best examples that we have had the honor to sell. Its timeless design and nostalgic charm make it perfect for display at car shows or enjoying on the open road. The car is sure to turn heads and draw admiration from both car enthusiasts and casual onlookers alike. It offers a glimpse into the opulence and elegance of the automotive industry during the 1950s in a way that few other cars can.

Very nice! Odd that this turquoise paint was combined with the black/gray/brown interior with the orange gauges. I would have expected it to have the blue interior instead. I guess that shows you could order it however you liked.

Are the orange gauges an option too, Nathan?

It's all together with the interior color option. The orange gauges always go with the brown dash pad and sliver/black fabrics that this car has.

I'm nearly 100% sure that this car comes to Das Awkscht Fescht car show every year. I've never driven it or heard it run, but it's a sweet car to look at. Gauges: Not an expert on 57 Chryslers, but it may be possible that all 57 Chrysler gauges were painted this color from the factory.

I think the price is reasonable, but as always, never buy a car sight unseen.

No, the blue interiors had light blue gauges, the green interiors had parade green-ish gauges, the black/gray interiors had gauguin red gauges (like this car). There were also tan gauges on the 300C, gray gauges with some NY & Saratoga interiors, and copper gauges in some Windsor interiors. (Edit: I just remembered one NY pink interior combo with copper gauges, and Saratogas might have them as well).

But I haven't seen all the possible interior choices on New Yorkers, and Saratogas too, for that matter. I do know that Windsors used all the possible gauge colors except for gray & tan. Gray seems to be a Saratoga/New Yorker only color, and tan is exclusive to the 300C. The picture below shows the green NY interior option.

the story continues

Every owner can logically do whatever he wants, but does he really have to take a real survivor low mileage car with the original paint in order to turn it into such a mess.
I could cry. Another historic piece of automotive history destroyed forever.

Wow! Definitely not what I would have done with it.  Still, owner's car, owner's money, owner's choice.  Seems like a big devaluation to me.

 

He had a car worth some pretty big dough (X).  As it is shown in the last images it might be worth $2 - $3 thousand bux.  The owner willl add value as the car is completed, but it will never reach X again.  More like one half X tops.  People do funny things!

The way I see it is people had a chance to buy it to preserve it But they chose not to. End result is what we now have.
So I guess next time one pops up. Someone needs to step up Correct?

it is a major shame that this is happening to a great survivor car.

He could have chosen a lower condition car to do something like a custom.
But his skills are probably not good enough so he chosed that way.
