  1. Can anyone tell me, or show me a picture- of what the trunk should look like in a 48 New Yorker? I am having an upholstery shop work on this, and have no basis for it being that it has nothing in the trunk now.

    1948 New Yorker Trunk

    So there were no side boards to create walls?
  3. Does anyone know what color combinations were used on New Yorker dashes in 1948? My car interior is taupe. But I see some have wood grain dash and solid plastic and some are painted dashes and wood grain plastic. I wanna repair my cracked Glove box door and curious if I repainted it wood grain was that an option. Thanks I'll include my dash pic

    1948 New Yorker dash colors

    In the 1948 chrysler line were the plastic. Dash colors specific to one model? For example would you only find solid colors in New Yorkers, while the marble look was in royals?
  5. Anyone know where to get correct stainless welting for late 40s Chrysler.
  6. Does anyone have a schematic on what clips are needed and where they go for the stainless on a 48 New Yorker? Thanks.

  13. did Chrysler use the same straight 8 engine throughout the 40s? I have a 48 New Yorker and someone wants to sell me a 41or 42 straight 8. Would they be the same?

    1940s straight 8s

    Thanks. Wasn't sure how compatible it was. I don't need it. Was gonna keep for spare. But if it's not easy install. I don't need a huge paperweight laying around.

    1940s straight 8s

    There is a transmission attached. Is that the same? And for $100 would it be foolish to turn down?
  17. What's the correct color for a 48 Chrysler New Yorker engine block?
  18. 1959 Edsel corsair convertible for sale. I began the restoration process but unable to finish. The car has been mostly disassembled. The body is still on the frame. It was being prepared for sandblasting. The car had areas on body that need repair. I have a new set of rocker panels. There were only about 1200 made. I have all the parts plus many extras. All the stainless for upper part (roof and Windows) have been professionally repaired and polished. I have all parts of car but missing rear seat. But same as ford. Please email or call. Asking $6,000 for everything. Any questions email or call Car Is located outside Buffalo, New York. Thanks. Keith 716-997-8650
  19. I believe it's called welting. There's a strip of chrome that goes between the rear fender and body. In pictures of late 40s chryslers it looks like chome. What is that? On my 48 New Yorker its black and leather like material. Was it painted? Should they all be chrome? Thanks.

    48 NewYorker turn signal

    I will admit I haven't gotten my shop manual in mail yet. I'm sure this is in there. But wondering why there's a light always on when I start the car. According to manual it's a turn signal indicator. But all are working and this just stays on. Any ideas why? Thanks

    Is that over riding the old flasher?

    Fluid drive shift issues

    Actually now that I drove it it seems to be working. Very quiet when shifting but runs much better. Thank you for all your help

    Fluid drive shift issues

    Hi I have a 48 New Yorker. Although I am learning fluid drive, I think I know enough that I should let foot off accelerator to let car downshift. I tried to let it shift between 10-15 mph and higher and lower. However, the car doesn't seem to downshift. It acts like there is only one gear in low. And one in high. Everything else seems to be working fine. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Fluid drive shift issues

    I did find a blown fuse to the kick down relay and replaced. Nothing seemed to change. Along with the rings mentioned. We ran a power wire to jump relay and heard no click.
