1978 Chrysler New Yorker Brougham Sold
Special ordered new by Bill Pettit of Pettit Brothers Chrysler in Virginia and owned by Mr. Pettit for over 30 years. Pettit was an avid car collector with a very impressive collection that at one point numbered in excess of 150 cars and included prized marques such as Packard, Rolls Royce, Stutz and Duesenberg. He and his father also owned "The Museum of Motoring Memories" in Virginia which displayed the vast collection of cars, some of which had been in the family since the 1940's! This New Yorker is an amazing original car and its condition reflects that of which you'd expect having come from such a fine collection. Only 61,000 miles have been registered on the odometer since new (exempt on title) and this New Yorker is loaded with options. It features a very unique color combination - quite possibly 1 of 1. Powered by a 440 ci V8 engine and equipped with an automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, power windows, power locks, air conditioning, dual power seats with passenger side recliner, leather upholstery, power trunk release and much more. The original owners manual and booklets are included. 1978 is the last year for this massive design, the 1979 New Yorker saw major downsizing. Call Tom or Dave at (407) 428-0116 for details. All cars are shown by appointment. Please be sure to call or email before visiting as we do not keep regular hours at our warehouse. Thanks for looking!
