Ha!! 10K off. He's missing the rubber boot on the throttle lever where it enters/leaves the drivers footwell. Tsk. Tsk.



Furthermore, I wonder how the Paint Code PNT "A" corresponds to reality.



It looks more "W" Indian Turquoise

Gorgeous! 

 

The data tag is strange: PNT scheme A - it seems like a jet black car would be AAA.  Based on the images I expected to see Vs and Ws.

Trim code 77 is also more of a beige color for the seat fabrics.

Nicely detailed restored car.
Few points of distraction for me are the seemingly mismatched bodypaint and interior colors.
I would've tried to match the bodypaint better to the interior color.
Seeing paint residue on door seals. Doors being closed while paint was still curing?
The roof 'container'-fabric in the trunk looks original, but therefore also now a bit 'shabby' compared to the rest of the car's condition.

I don't even see a fabric on that chart that looks like what they used:

Listing has ended.

Very nice car indeed and better than anything I own. Would make my neck twist if it drove by.

Even if not using the correct trim, what would be the cost to source a convertible and restore it to this condition(judging by photos)?

Pretty much any 57 NY convert is a beautiful car....

The colors are funky IMO....if it's original, not a color I like. If it's a repaint to non-original, I wonder why they chose that color....?

Interesting, it has a SOFO number, maybe that's because it was an all black New Yorker (paint scheme A, not other letter), without colored insert ?

Thanks for that. I figured "A" was black but I didn't see it on the colour chart. After reading what you said, I went back and looked at the chart.

There it is, at the bottom of the chart, in "fine print" (now circled in red), A = Jet Black and with no second or third letters, *ALL* black.

Black NYer FL verts are really rare, I had a '58 and have never seen another, and I believe mine with a Spruce interior may have been 1 of 1. It's in Sweden now, I sold it to Ron Wenger of PA, and he sold it on to Sweden.

I like this '57, $81k from RM seems like a very decent price, if the resto looks as good in person as it does in pics he got a great deal, color aside.

That seat fabric looks familiar... off a DeSoto or another year Chrysler?

If you say so. I thought that that was a shadow.
