1956 Chrysler New Yorker St Regis Coupe
Rare Find! Check out this Beautiful California Classic
There were 6,686 St Regis Coupes built for the 1956 model year. The St Regis boasted a three-tone paint scheme versus two-tone paint for the base New Yorker. At over 17 feet long, the power steering comes in very handy!
For the 1956, mechanically, the St. Regis had been revised The Hemi V-8 now displaced 354 cubic inches and gained half a point of compression, up to 9.0:1, for 260hp.
The old six-volt electrical system was replaced by a more modern 12-volt system, and the automatic transmission did away with a shift lever altogether and moved to a seemingly space-age pushbutton system.
A quadrant of buttons, marked N (neutral), D (drive), L (low) and R (reverse), were located on the instrument panel, to the left of the steering column; there was no Park, so at rest, the car stayed in Neutral with the parking brake on. Early 1956 models used the two-speed Power Flite Automatic transmission.
The Exterior is a 3 Tone Cloud White/Geranium Red, and Raven Black (paint code 308). The car was repainted in the late 90s and still shows in good condition. This New Yorker was well maintained.
There is some minor filler in the bottom quarters, and a small indent in the rear bumper along with some light pitting on the chrome.
The Gray and White Two-tone interior is mostly original (original front seat under seat cover) and is only original once. The Armrests and Dash pad have been reupholstered.
The dash is clean with no cracks
Heat/ Defrost is working
Original working AM Radio
The Vin# N56L4220 breaks down as N for New Yorker, 56 for year built, L for built in Los Angelos.
