    62 New Yorker Dash Question.

    NOT my car, but dash is identical, except for vinyl is grey.
  4. Anyone know of any shop that can diagnose\repair the Electroluminescent dash that is on the EAST COAST. Computer search has only come up with one on West coast. Posted also on chrysler general.

    Funny car stories

    When I was young and dumb, a friend of my father was keeping his "project" car in our garage. As I remember, it was about a 36 or 38 coupe with a big V8 installed. I decided one day when no one else was home that I wanted to hear how it sounded. Having NO knowledge of cars, I turned the key to start it. YES, it was in gear, and I put one of the bumper brackets through the door of our upright freezer. (The keys were not left in the car after that)

    Advice needed

    Thanks for the compliment. Here are some more exterior pictures. Interior is currently a work in progress, as is the engine bay. Still has the original 413 wedge, with carter AFB 4barrel. Chrome and stainless have NOT been redone.

    Advice needed

    Not sure where to post this, but have a couple of questions in reference to windlace. I have a 1962 Chrysler New yorker that I bought several years ago. 2nd owner, and it has less than 40K miles on it. The interior is/was original, and the seats are currently out and being re-upholstered. Have been doing research on windlace, and several methods are mentioned, (tack strips, alligator clips, screws, and plugs.) All references I can find online are GM vehicles. Here are my questions. 1. How is the windace attached on this car. 2. Is this something I can do myself. (note, I'm 73, DO NOT have a garage, and spent my entire adult life as a Paramedic/Firefighter.

    Really nice cars on the link, had to share this one. Would be advertized here in the US as "running when parked".

    Fire extinguishers for shop and cars

    As a retired Career Firefighter, there are a few things to be aware of using both ABC and Halon extinguishers.1: Halon was first used for electrical and computer storage areas. Halon uses up all the remaining Oxygen in the area, thus the fire goes out. However, in a confined space, it can cause suffocation for the user. 2: ABC or dry chemical is very corrosive especially to electrical components even if not directly involved in the fire.

    Chrysler turquoise

    Chrysler turquoise

    Don't have a paint supplier, my own vehicle. Have just contacted Bill Hirsch in NJ. Sending me a chip. The confusing thing is that most web searches show the 413 as being orange. However, I believe that only the 413 ram induction was orange. The chrysler turquoise shows up as being for the 440 in 62. My new yorker (413) has the original engine paint, and it is turquoise ????? Looking at 62 color chips, it is very close to willow green.
  15. Have a 62 New Yorker, and need to re-paint engine. Original paint is chrysler turquoise, part # P4120752. Everywhere I have looked, paint shows up as P4120752AB, which is not the correct color. ANY help on where I can get P4120752 would be greatly appreciated.
