My father-in-law drove Chryslers iin the early 1960s including this New Yorker.

Good memories and I'll choose it over the Buick.

I always liked the last big Electra for some perverse reason.

P.S. Buick better resurrect this name for its electric offering in future.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

I really like both of these but give the edge to the Chrysler.

Both are a little boxy for my taste.  But push comes to shove, I voted for the BUICK.

Even though I am a Chrysler fan, I went with the Buick.  It just looked more luxurious.

Hard to choose based on looks alone, and driving either one would have made you look equally affluent back in 1973. But I believe the Chrysler's engine, transmission, and suspension are superior so it gets my vote!

I'm not that keen on this era really but they seem pretty much equal.

Tough call here.  Great photos of both cars, two bright spots in the 1973+ Era of Ugly. I actually like each of them and are voting a tie.

'73 don't care for either, but prefer Chrysler over Buick in most years.  Voted Chrysler.
