1965 Chrysler New Yorker - Image015B3
It can be surprising how a few simple touches can bring out imbedded beauty in a car. Or, conversely, it can be surprising how a few dowdy touches can dull that same beauty. When I acquired this car it had weathered-drab, old original size bias ply tires with standard steel wheels and standard, uninspiring wheel covers. The words "ultra conservative" and "old" came to mind. The paint was oxidized and severely needfull of waxing. The car had a single exhaust with a toneless stock muffler. The car was in need of a makeover...the basic bone structure was intact but needing some cosmetic advice to restore brilliance and vitality.
The car really is one of my ideas of automotive perfection. I added just enough modification to suit my personal values. Tires are five new 235/70/R15 Goodyear Weatherhandlers (premium quality, more hefty and wider than factory original OEM) with wide whites expanded on a tire lathe. 15" Chrome Magnum wheels are NORS. Dual exhaust is aluminum alloy pipe with tuned turbo mufflers. Chrome exhaust tips are NOS '70 Ford Mustang. Everything else is bone stock original and tight/clean as new. An absolute dream to drive on the boulevard or on the highway. You cannot buy this weight and resulting powerful ride in any modern car, regardless of what price you pay! 413 4V with 36K original miles. Of course it's expensive to buy premium gas all the time. I use one ounce of kerosene per five gallons of gas as a lead additive substitute for upper engine lubrication. 727 AT with column shift. AC still chilly. Perfect original black leather bucket seat interior with nice original black carpet and headliner. Power steering. Power brakes. Power windows. Power driver's seat. Remote trunk release. Trunk light (a big deal back then). AM radio still works, although I usually carry a stereo Walkman with me.
Note the clear Euro-style tail lights... before there even was Euro! Headlights have glass covers, too! See them in the neighboring photostream image. The feature came only this one year for the New Yorker, I believe. Imperial carried it in 1965 and into 1966. Then that was it, all she wrote on that classy design idea. Our gummint stepped in and quashed that design element. For some kind of safety reasons that were never clear to me. If you may recall, the glass-covered feature disappeared off the Jaguar XKE as well by 1967. Now, every manufacurer has its own clear plastic headlight lens design covering one of a handful of different lamp styles. The design feature is the same as in 1965, but now its legal. Go figure!
My special inner border photo treatment represents a faux cut glass appearance. That matches it up with the finishing touch, a large print displayed in a custom beveled glass mount. I admire it on my desk every day. So do most other people.
These were indeed the near end of the good old days. 1971 was the absolute end. 1972 marks the production year when polution/horsepower controls and gas prices got stupid.
This nice original metallic paint is called Spanish Red. It had other names when applied to other Mopar models in 1965. There were even available matching-color interiors. You cannot get this kind of color harmony today. Generally, only ubiquitous dark or light gray or ubiquitous dark or light tan. With the occasional gray-tan (a really exciting variation). Black is still around if you search hard enough.
What is totally amazing by today's standards, is that in 1965 you could have arranged with your dealer to order your car in almost any custom paint color. It may have taken an extra six weeks or so, but it was possible.
1992 Toyota Camry 3.0i GX V6 Saloon.
Good to see another V6 model Camry around, and this one was in great shape! I don't know if its just me, but I feel the condition of the wheels is a good marker for how well the car itself is treated, so the clean alloys on this one proove it's in good hands. Not massively uncommon, but certainly not an everyday sight for me. SW London numberplate, so it hasn't moved around much in its life. I bet the tax on this would be really expensive if it wasn't for the fact it was made in 1992, meaning the DVLA charges a flat rate for the engine size being over a certain amount.
