Greetings.... I just registered on this forum, and decided I would post to a thread about the above vehicle.
My father has always loved the 1951 Chrysler New Yorker. He doesn't care whether it's a convertible or not. I have been doing some reading/research on this vehicle, and it seems like they're rather scarce. I have found several online, though, which seem to be in good shape. For a fully restored, show-room condition version, I have seen them run anywhere from $50k to $80k. I found one recently, listed at $35k that was "like new," all original, and a partial restoration from about 25 years ago. Lastly, I found one that recently sold for about $10k which had approximately 90k miles on it, and had a partial restoration done about 15 to 20 years ago.
I started out by saying that my father has always loved this vehicle, but could never justify spending the money on it as he has always saved and invested for his family. He's in his upper 70's now, and it's certainly time (past the time) that he should have his dream car. Since I am buying the car, though, I need to stay within my budget. I can spend somewhere around $20k. I know this won't buy a pristine, show-room, fully-restored vehicle, but it will get me part of the way there.
Should anyone run across this type of vehicle, within the realm of this price range, I would appreciate it if you would contact me via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks, and happy motoring!!!!
