$19K for a 61 sedan compared to Islander62's 60 4dr hardtop for $4K. Hmm....who got the better deal?

In all fairness, if you really reallly REALLY want a restored 61 NY'er sedan with AC, this isn't a terrible deal. You'd probably spend more to restore it yourself. 

But yeah, a 60 4D NY'er hardtop for $4k is a steal. Do you have a link to Islander's hardtop?

I think that's a bit unfair. Sure, $19k is on the high side for this '61 (maybe). But the '60 for $4k was an absolute steal. Finding a car like that for that price is much more rare than winning the lottery.

If you've got a warehouse full of nice cars like that '60 and are willing to give them away at $4k each, let me know, I'll take them all.

Gosh.....I didn't think my '60 would cause such a stir. It really is nice though, and finding one in this condition is outhouse luck.....It's a tad under the condition of my '61 Saratoga...yup...Saratoga, because it was made here in Canada.
We just brought the New Yorker home to Vancouver Island yesterday and have it safely tucked away. Now down to the reason it came so cheap....the engine room is a mess...the 413 is seized....and it looks like the battery may have exploded way back when......who knows at this point...whoever started work on it so many years ago had no idea what they were doing. the plugs have been out of the engine at least twenty years and the oil filter and pressure sender are out as well. But....as everyone knows it's a lot easier to go through a drive train than it is to do body and upholstery etc.....and far less expensive. In the WPC club here on the Island we have two fifty plus years experienced Mopar mechanics...one of whom holds some performance records from his racing days. He's looking forward to hauling the 413 out and going through it...the Torque Flite fluid looks and smells OK but we're going to do it regardless....the car came with a Sure Grip which we'll inspect and service.
We put a new set of 235/75/14 American Classics on it and it really looks the part. Jon Carson down in Woodinvile Wa. who is the WPC President in that region, has is own company, Fenders and Fins, did some work on the car before we brought it home and it looks like a million bucks...he does beautiful work....and speaking of bucks....it may have cost us 4K in Canadian funny money, but I paid 3K US as the purchase price......

Here's the link to the '60 thread which was posted by my good friend Ian Smale, AKA imopar380, yesterday. http://www.forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=70441
