Found on Ebay is this top of the line 1958 Chrysler New Yorker loaded with options including factory air, cruise control, full power windows and seats and 9 passenger seating. With only 428 New Yorker Town & Country wagons manufactured and only 14 known to remain this could be the nicest one in existence.
With the rust problems that plague most late 50’s Mopars, a lifetime spent in Arizona and California has spared the wagon of the typical rot. A fully documented restoration was done on the car that began in 1998.
A 392 Hemi, 342 HP V8 powers the car which is paired with a 3-speed Tourque Flight pushbutton transmission. Torsion bar suspension helps give the car a smooth road ride.
The car looks spectacular with it’s deep red exterior and faithfully reproduced red and grey Fontainbleau Jacquard cloth inserts.
Considering what it would cost to restore one today and the rarity of this loaded wagon, the $44,800 BIN price seems very fair.
Update: 1/18/2012: Seller pulled the listing early so it must have sold.
