Driven: 1971 Chrysler New Yorker

Welcome back to “Driven” where we feature cars found at hotels that have out of state plates. Cars that are actually driven.

Today we have a car so beautiful we’re going to break our out of state plates rule. Being that it was found at a hotel parking lot that is one of the last exits leaving Phoenix, we’re going to assume it’s from the high country. Found in a very era-appropriate metallic shade of “Split Pea Puke” green. This monstrous fuselage-styled car was actually unibody construction and equipped with a 440 cubic inch v8. Also to note that this model is the hard top and not the sedan, as it lacks a b-pillar.
