YAK Car Pic of the Day

Its “fuselage” styling was in its third year when this 1971 Chrysler New Yorker went on sale. The rounded sides with the tucked-under rockers and pinched-in roofs were pretty distinctive, but didn’t do a heckuva lot for sales. The New Yorker was knocked down a peg in the Chrysler hierarchy this year with the addition of a new top-of-the-line New Yorker Brougham. This four-door sedan, seen a short time back in Lockport, listed for $4,910 when new, and 9,850 were produced. Fun fact: it has one of the smallest pair of fender skirts ever to grace a car (but check out the skirts on the ’55 Olds Super 88 — also miniscule).
