1972 NYB in Perry, MI

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 1972 NYB in Perry, MI
Not mine. From the FB ad:

"440 big block. Runs but the carb was acting up so it’s off right now. Had no issues before that. I’m rebuilding the carb but will negotiate price if you take it without carb. 1000obo"

The windshield is cracked, the dash pad is cracked, there are tears on the headrests (and we can't see the Brougham seat fabric), and there is some rust in the lower part -- but at $1k negotiable for a...

Not mine. CE23K1C152299 was just listed for sale on CL. This K-code 'vert was initially offered here on FCBO by @roxtar69 for $8k back in early December; the price is now down to $5k.

The car looks good to me in the pics, with a cracked dash pad and rust in the trunk / base of rear window /...

1971 New Yorker in Tampa, FL (2dr, triple gunmetal, red stripes)

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 1971 New Yorker in Tampa, FL (2dr, triple gunmetal, red stripes)
Not mine. This car is for sale on eBay by member @mindshark13, who told me he'd be happy if I posted the link here.

I thought about getting the car as I love the color/interior combo (and the red stripes are a nice touch), but I decided to pass because the car needs more bodywork (in the roof/Dutchman panel mostly) than I want to handle at the moment.

The car is loaded. Here is the decode,...

A 1972 Chrysler New Yorker Brougham as a movie star

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on A 1972 Chrysler New Yorker Brougham as a movie star
Found this 2dr '72 NYB listed for movie rental. The exterior paint looks like GK6 Autumn Bronze (or is it GT8 Chestnut Brown? @saforwardlook may be able to tell), while the interior and top look like the G6T5 tan vinyl buckets and V1T tan, respectively. The car looks great with its road wheels. @Jeffrey Robidoux -- this might be a good opportunity to go and see if a '72 NYB...

1971 Newport in Missouri (4dr hardtop, reduced price)

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 1971 Newport in Missouri (4dr hardtop, reduced price)
CE43L1C117659 is a GT8 brown Newport that, despite being in very good shape overall, has been for sale since the fall. This car has been discussed here before.

The seller just dropped his price to $4.5k (it was initially $6k) and, as I had expressed interest before, reached out to me to see if I now would consider the car. My issue was not the price but the fact that I don't...
