It looks like this car was originally sandalwood or maybe gray colored. But I can't read the tag from the distance that they provide. Check out the trunk though, an original Chrysler trunk mat! I've never seen one before this.

This 1958 Chrysler Saratoga sedan is powered by a 354ci V8 “Poly Head” engine that sends all power to the rear wheels by way of a three-speed automatic transmission. The Virgil Exner-styled body is painted in red with a white top, and the upholstery is matched with the same two-tone leather color. This Chrysler “Forward Look” styling came with many innovations for the period including a push-button automatic transmission, “Total Contact” hydraulic brakes, and “Torsion-Aire” suspension. In addition, the car comes with quad headlights, the period-correct radio, and a 122-inch long chassis. The five-digit odometer shows 12,734 miles, but the true mileage is unknown and the previous owner stated that the engine was rebuilt. This car has been cared for by the same individual since 2001 and is located in New York.


The Saratoga shows well in the third-party photos and inspection provided. The exterior was likely re-painted at some point, the seller notes, and new Coker tires were placed on the vehicle last year. The owner states that the transmission was rebuilt in 2002. Other refurbishment includes ignition and brake work. An exhaustive list can be found below. Scratches and chips in the paint and some surface rust can be found on the window trim are displayed in the photos and are consistent with the age of the vehicle. Buyers should note a spot of perforating rust in the trunk, and that the car will need brake service since the power brake booster is not working appropriately. The interior leather is plush and in good condition. Some wear can be found on the dash trim as well as the door cards. Mechanically the car runs and drives as expected. The owner has included in the sale many spare parts, including a hard-to-find original bellows power brake booster. A car cover, original owner’s manual, and four spare brand-new tires are also included.

Nifty!  buyer beware, though - those fuzzy dice need a complete and total rebuild
