Decoding a Chrysler New Yorker ID plate

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

A friend is restoring a 1947/48 Chrysler New Yorker that has been in the same family from new, delivered new to Mumbai, India. Would someone please be kind enough to help decode the original finishes, especially the upholstery? Being an export market car, I would think there might be some different materials offered.

 

Thanks very much,

Karl
