STRYKERSVILLE, N.Y. – The 1966 Chrysler New Yorker was one of the many cars on sale in the mid-1960s which were, for lack of a better term, very square looking. Lots of sharp angles and very vertical surfaces made, IMO, for cars which actually looked bigger than they were. In the case of the New Yorker, it was already pretty big to begin with, and this six-window sedan was a body style on its way out in 1966. The last ones in Dodge dealerships were sold in 1965; Cadillac’s final six-window was in 1964, likewise the Buick Electra 225 and Olds Ninety-Eight. The six-window cars were great for seeing out of — hardly a blind spot in sight! Today’s RealRide was spotted last summer at the 2ndAnnual Strykersville Fire Dept. Super Cruise.
