Car description

Available in a wide variety of styles. the New Yorker was Chrysler’s high-end car for 1946. Body options included a line of two-door models including a three-passenger coupe. six-passenger club coupe. the convertible. and a six-passenger sedan. Four-door options included a six-passenger sedan. Additionally. buyers could opt for the wood-trimmed Town & Country styling that was available in the four-door sedan or two-door convertible. Another available trim level was a plaid interior bearing the “Highlander” nameplate. The Chrysler New Yorker engine was a 323. 5-cid inline eight-cylinder with a 135 horsepower rating. The transmission was an interesting feature. with a Fluid Drive torque converter mated to a standard clutch and a Presto-Matic semi-automatic transmission. With this transmission and overdrive combination. the driver selected a low range or high range using the clutch. and the transmission automatically applied overdrive to either of these. yielding four effective gears. The Fluid Drive torque converter allowed the driver to hold the car at a stop without using the clutch. in order to accelerate as an automatic.
