I really like the '54 NYers, I own two of them.  I can say the interior is in no way original though appears nicely done with a two tone vinyl. I believe we see the remnants of the  original color of the interior based on the steering wheel. 


While this is the exceedingly rare (for the model year) 2 door club coupe, the original 20k asking price is too high, I checked the link and see it's now a more reasonable 15k though being a base NYer and not a 'Deluxe' it may find to be a tough sell even at that price point.  Seems (from the angle) like the LH rear flank 'New Yorker' script has broken, probably during a re-install after paint, these are fragile.  Still, appears as a very nice car based on appearance.

The non-Deluxe 1953-'54 New Yorkers essentially replaced the Saratoga.   That series still catalogued a two door club coupe whereas the 1951-'52 New Yorker only offered the Newport hardtop.  These two door club sedans in the upper-medium price segment were an anomaly, their primary competitors Buick Roadmaster and Packard Clipper Super dropped body style in preference to the hardtop.  Speaks volumes about the conservative purchasing patterns of Chrysler buyers then.

The Craigslist post say $15,000!  Say what you will about this car but I do like it.  It appears in the pictures that this is a quality restoration and for the money you cannot beat it

Surprising that several dollars were spent on the paint and interior, but the steering wheel was left untouched. I would have spent some money on a leather cover before the pics were taken. That having been said, a very sharp car at t reasonable price.
