1958 Chrysler New Yorker 2-door

I have a 1958 Chrysler New Yorker 2-door hardtop for sale. 1 of 3205 produced for the model year.
This car is 99% complete, 99% original, in original paint, and has been a dry Colorado car its whole life. 89,901 miles are believed to be original as well.
Blue on blue. 345hp Hemi. Power brakes, power windows, power seat, third horn.
The car starts, runs, drives, stops, and does not overheat. And at the moment, almost everything works - gauges, horn, power seat, speedometer, etc. Until recently however, it had been non-operational for a very, very long time... As such, I cannot say it's running at a high enough level to be daily-driver material. It needs a complete mechanical refresh, some of which I've begun to address. I've been driving it around and sorting out the issues a little at a time.
Brakes are completely new including drums, wheel cylinders, master cylinder, hoses, seals, shoes and wheelstuds. The original Kelsey-Hayes booster is functional, and the car stops very well.
Correct original 14" wheels are freshly powdercoated and shorn with $1000 worth of BFG Silvertown whitewalls.
New fuel tank. Sender works.
Engine is original to the car and remarkably untouched down to the plug wires. It runs, but not great, and will need a tune-up at the least.
For the numbers people: The block is stamped 58N2514. The AFB is a 2651S and dated J7 (freshly rebuilt). Fuel pump #M2503SA, Dated A7. Radiator #1686597, Dated G7. Generator #1842801 / GJM-8001A; freshly rebuilt but not numbers-correct. Etcetera.
The pushbutton shifter functions properly and the transmission hits all gears correctly, but it leaks quite a bit from the input shaft seal until the car warms up.
Body-wise, there is isolated corrosion in the usual locations, but the car is not a rust-bucket by any means. Will need some repair in the
floors, rockers, lower quarters, and trunk dropoffs. Trunk floor is very good, and floors are mostly good. Hood, decklid, cowl, fenders and doors are either excellent or needing only isolated metalwork. Frame and undercarriage show only surface rust and zero rot.
This car has never been in an accident.
Bumpers, trim, scripts, and brightwork all present and with few exceptions in very good or very workable condition.
Very nice all-original glass.
The interior is 100% complete with the exception of the driver's side seat hinge cover. Condition is what you'd expect from its 59 years
and will need to be restored. I did remove, clean and lubricate the seat tracks; the switch is not functioning consistently but the tracks
do move in all six directions as they should.
Both front power windows are functioning very well. Both rears are stuck.
I do have spare trim, good wheel covers, taillights, a very good grille, and a few other misc. spares that go with the car.
Colorado title is clean, clear, and in my name. This exceedingly rare car needs and deserves a complete restoration, and is being sold as such. Car is for sale locally; listing can be ended at any time. I'm happy to answer any questions about the car and can be reached at 303.941.0272.
