Chrysler New Yorker
Chrysler introduced the Hemi engine in 1951. However, it didn’t become a hot item until 1954 when the Chrysler engineers managed to squeeze 235 HP out of it. At the time, people considered that ludicrous power. Chrysler installed it in the elegant and restrained New Yorker model. The 331 Hemi V8 proved to be not only fast but durable and classy.
