After learning and enjoying these FL cars for nearly 10 years finally got the chance to call one my own. Picked it up at a Auction lot/junkyard, workers didn't give me any backstory but I did find a California registration card dated for 1979-1980, wearing old bias ply whitewalls I guess it hasn't been on the road since then, friend helped shadow the car on the 70 miles back home. Runs, drives and stops, but almost nothing on the dash works, started by ordering a rebuild kit for the carb, replaced the fuel filter, spark plugs and gave it a oil change, few fuel and trans flex lines were replaced since they leaked a little, power steering pump will need new seals as its leaking, one thing at a time I guess Also found the original keys under the passenger seat so thats a score.

1960 Chrysler Saratoga Sedan, 383 4bbl, built December 4th, 1959. Pretty well optioned with tinted glass, flightsweep decklid, Power Steering, Power Brakes, 7 Button Radio, Swivel seats, Cruise Control, A/C, padded dash and original dealer optioned front lap belts.

Congrats on finding your Saratoga. Wizard, above is very knowledgable on these. I've also owned a 60 Saratoga since 2008.
You're lucky to have those OEM aluminum shield keys, they are very rare, only supplied with 1959-1960 Chrysler models.
The front fender top ornaments are also optional on the Saratoga and Windsor.
