It says that he was the original owner too. Would have been great to pick his brain before this came up for sale.

What a treasure. Looks to be loaded with factory air conditioning, power windows and seat, 7 button radio.

I flew in to look at the car. Really neat piece. The front doors and fenders have been repainted at some point. Outside of that, it's a pretty original piece. Weird car to value. Hope it doesn't get restored, whoever buys it.

Can't believe all the time I spent in Wichita as a kid, around Chrysler people, that nobody ever knew anything about this car. What an incredible find. Agree with Mike, I sure hope it is just preserved and not restored.

It runs but has only moved 500 miles in 34 years. Driver front fender had something dripping on it, which ended up with small holes on top of the fender.

We shall see. Goal will be preservation not restoration. Want to keep it as original as possible

That looks like a great time capsule. I'm very jealous. Congratulations!

Very cool! 

Are the fender birds pretty rare on 58 New Yorkers or is it the hood ornament that is the rarity?

Apart from 58 New Yorkers being pretty rare all by themselves!

'57-'58 New Yorkers didn't get hood ornaments (apart from the plastic ornament on the '57's), they only could get the fender ornaments if you paid for them. The 2-piece hood ornaments were only available on the Windsors & Saratogas, and the fender ornaments weren't available to them.
