It has the same odd original color scheme as was on my Black/White '57 New Yorker. But I don't think it's the same one. There was also a Black/White New Yorker in Deluth MN recently, but those are the closest I have seen to this unless someone has already repainted it a different color.

IF you can see (get a photo of) the cowl (or rad support) data tag, then the paint code should tell the story.

Regarding 1957 Chrysler paint colours, one source says "A: Jet Black (300 Only)" and "X: Cloud White" so a black and white car's paint code would be something like XAX (or ???).

REFERENCE: http://wildaboutcarsonline.com/cgi-bin/pub9990262549620.cgi?itemid=...

Potential data tag locations:



Location on the rad support:



A UHU paint code (U Deep Ruby and H Mist Gray)



General 57 Chrysler paint codes (singles)

Dave, the sweep on his car isn't painted white so it would have had the code XAA, just like my New Yorker.

Hence my "something like XAX (or ???)", emphasis on the "???" (I was just guessing a bit with the XAX)

Thanks.

It would still be good to confirm the Paint code with the data tag.

Neat car! At that time, if it wasn't a "perfect" New Yorker, it was probably used as a parts car for a 300C. I'd like to be wrong, but that's just reality!

It looks like the car in Minnesota is now for sale. But he wants a whopping $18K for it, and it doesn't have a windshield either.
