Mikko Soininen's 1975 New Yorker Brougham

My car is Chrysler New Yorker Brougham 4dr sedan -75.The car rolled out from the Jefferson Avenue factory in Detroit on February 5th 1975 with the standard set of 440 cid engine, TF-727 automatic transmission and 9 ¼ rearaxle. The optional equipment are heavy duty alternator, automatic height control, auto-speed control, automatic brake release, manual vent windows, tinted glasses, remote-control right mirror, electronic digital clock and chrome styled road wheels. The bodycolour is Formal black and roof is covered by black vinyl. Interior is blue with cloth-and-vinyl seats.

The car was originally registered in July 25th 1975 for a big finnish shipconstructing company Wartsila (present days known as Masa-Yards). The company used it for executive and vip transports. In October 29th 1990, after fifteen years of service it was retired from professional use and sold to a doctor who lived in southern Finland.

September 22nd 1993 I bought the car and became its third owner. The car is still in original shape, I even found original build sheet under the backseat. These days you can see it on the road in summer times. In winter time I keep it in a warm garage.
