Chrysler New Yorker (9th gen) 1974-1978

Ninth generation 1974-1978

For 1974, the so-called "fuselage" styling featured on all full size Chrysler products remained relatively unchanged until the introduction of the 1974 models which featured a far more massive slab sided effect. This generation introduced covered headlights, and a more prominent "waterfall" style grille, reflecting popular styling appearances, primarily used on the Lincoln Continental. These 1974 models timed to coincide precisely with the 1973 OPEC oil embargo, and were a significant part of Chrysler's economic woes in the late 1970s. The 1974 models were the last full-size models Chrysler designed from the ground up.[28] Two New Yorker trim levels were offered in 1974, the base New Yorker and an upgraded New Yorker Brougham. A new St. Regis option package was added mid-year.

For 1975, the New Yorker received a slightly revised grille and New Yorker Brougham became the sole trim designation. The St. Regis package, introduced in mid-1974, returned for its first full year.

In 1976, the New Yorker inherited the front and rear end styling of the discontinued Imperial, and its interiors as well, especially, covered headlights. The Imperial styling gave the New Yorker an unforeseen boost in sales, as the car looked distinctly different from the lower priced Newport. The styling cues formerly used on the 1974 and 1975 New Yorkers in turn were passed on to the base Chrysler Newport.

In 1977, the standard 440-cid V8 engine was now computer-controlled with a new "lean burn" system allowing for more responsive acceleration and performance.

The 1978 New Yorker Brougham was available in 2-door and 4-door hardtop body styles. Both were the last U.S.-built true pillarless hardtop models along with featuring frameless door glass and fully opening windows.[29] An optional "St. Regis" package included a partial "formal" padded vinyl roof that included a fixed B-pillar and opera window. This was also the final year a 2-door New Yorker was offered. Appearance changes were limited to a new segmented grill design, dual accent tape strips on the lower body sides, new rear deck stripes, and bright accents on the taillamps.[31] The 400 cu in (6.6 L) V8 engine (360 cu in (5.9 L) in California and high altitude regions) was now the standard engine with the 440 cu in (7.2 L) becoming optional. The last year of the C-body New Yorker Broughams saw engineering changes that included a revised windshield wiper linkage bushing, redesigned front and rear plastic fender extensions for the bumpers, and thinner glass.
