1951 Chrysler New Yorker Convertible

This top of the line Chrysler was the first New Yorker to use a V8 engine.  The V8 was called the "Firepower Engine."  Cars with the V8 power were identified by large V ornaments on the hood and deck lid.

New Yorker nameplates were placed on the front fenders.  Power steering was an industry first and "Oriflow" shock absorbers were now available.

Styling changes were basically limited to the area in front of the cowl.  Grille changes consisted of a heavily chromed look with a chromed centerpiece.  The dash panel continued its padded design and remained similar to the 1949 type.
