Title: Pcked Up A New Driver
Post by: azblackhemi on September 24, 2012, 05:53:09 PM
I picked up a 66 New Yorker 4dr ht from a friend of mine. It was his dad's who passed away recently. He was a lifelong Chrysler Dealership technician and was an excellent mechanic. He had everything dialed in just right on this car. It runs great and drives real tight. It's loaded with options like power windows, tilt and tele, a/c and AM/FM. I'm going to paint it and drive it. Here's some pictures I took as it was getting dark last night.

Yeah, very nice.
 
He would have to move to Texas if he put that on the rotisserie!!

Great find Chris!! Looks like a keeper. The 65 and 66s are some of the most classic big Chryslers, no doubt, congrats!

My parent's '65 Newport was just about that same color - was a 4-door HT too.  Nice!

brings back memories of my Dad's car (I was born in 66, he had it until 1981)

I had a 66 Newpie I drove back and forth to Jersey City every day.  280K and it was almost as nice as Az's.  It thrans got so bad I would start it in the morning, let it idle and warm up until the car went against the curb stone.  The front pump was shot.

Had a free day today and had some white paint in my paint cabinet so I painted the roof on my New Yorker. Decided to do away with the vinyl on the "C" pillars and just paint it. If I can make time during the week to sand it I'll shoot the green next weekend. Here's the pictures.

Yeah, but which "green" are we talking about? There are some very nice ones, and some not so nice ones, to choose from.

I'm keeping it the original light green metallic so I don't have to paint the door jambs and engine bay. I know alot of guys don't like green but all fresh new and shiny it'll look good. I'm not trying to make a 100 point show car, just a driver.

No, that's fine, and I can definitely understand that as a way to get a good looking fresh paint job on the outside and the jambs looking good, or at least matching, so good choice of green.

Green is a great color for big Chryslers... and it seems like most of them came that way!

Painting a roof looks familiar.  At least you didn't have hail damage from Illinois to deal with.

I yearn for the day when I can afford to have my Newp repainted the silver it was made with!

That roof looks nice!!  And that light green will look sharp.

Well I snuck my NY'er in between jobs and got the green on it. I hope to find the time to sand and buff it soon but this weekend is Fall Fling in California. Maybe next weekend.

 Yeah I cut some corners on this one.  the fact is it's a 4dr "C" Body. What's it worth?  $3000-$4000 maybe? If I put a 10 thousand dollar paint job on it maybe $3500-$4500. Just trying to be smart about it.

That's what I figured and I am sure you masked it off ever so carefully that most wouldn't  even notice. That and you didn't want to mess up those stupid plastic clips.

They are custom made following the original pattern and adding the buttons. I'm really happy with the way they turnred out. My upholstery guy did a great job.

Post by: Guests on December 04, 2012, 01:26:27 PM
Yes, he did, again. I know where I am going to get upholstery done when I finally get to that point, definitely worth the 350 mile drive to give him my business.
