So said their advertising for 1941. So I decided to "be modern" and just added this little gem to my collection!

Brooklin's 1941 Chrysler New Yorker convertible:

20211010 171451
20211010 171511
20211010 171624

I don't have many pre-war cars in my collection but this beauty just might start me off...

This is a really nice one by BRK done in a great color for a convertible.  I have this one and the red top down version, which displays really well too.

Good choice, Moe.  I think it's one of Brooklin's finer productions.  Looking for mine, I found a couple of others whose makers tend to agree with you about the color.

My Grandfather did just that "modern" thing and bought a 1941 Chrysler. Of course, he did that partially because my Mom, as a brand-new driver, had crunched up the front of his 1936 Airflow and he decided just to get a new car. Mom mentioned one saving grace from her little pile up, was that they had a nearly brand-new car at the start of WWII, when new cars weren't available.

I like the top-down one too. I'm surprised Brooklin didn't put the Highlander interior into it, it would have looked great in that red convertible!

Mine has a few details added by Fred Lewis. And the top has been left loose to view the interior. Brooklin was unable to provide me the top-down boot though.

It's hard to see how beautiful the interior is with the fixed uptop. Thanks for showing it!

The Chrysler is an outstanding model, both the open & closed versions are great.

I don't have the convertibles, but I kept looking at the gray BRK 120 Business Coupe, thinking that it was nice-looking.  Never pulled the trigger, though, until Brooklin reissued it in dark blue with tan interior, as BRK 120a.   I got that one and when it arrived, I was blown away by how great it looks.  The dark color with all the brightwork and the wide whitewalls---just stunning.   Highly recommended if you don't have it!

I just looked at a picture, yes it looks great! Interesting that Brooklin badged that one a Saratoga. I think Saratoga and New Yorker differed only in interior trim, exteriors were identical except for the script on the hood.

The model looks nice and the paint job looks clean. That is a very nice lineup, indeed. Holy hell. I’m also interested in getting my hands on a few red ones if there are any.

As I often do when I particularly love a model, I bought the original sales brochure for this one. It arrived today in absolutely amazing condition for an 80-year old paper document! Here are a few pics:
