This may interest some on the site. Might make a good soulmate for ayilar's 1972 Buttercup.

Surprisingly it has been repainted but otherwise, it looks like a gem for a lover of 72 New Yorker 4 doors...this looks darker than B5 blue so maybe the owner just wanted a darker blue.....?

The car still drives like new, handles the road excellent and rides very smooth. The whitewall tires have great tread remaining and brakes stop excellent. The car is beautiful and in excellent condition. It had one beautiful professional repaint to its original True Blue Metallic (73 version of B5 blue!) The body has no rot issues and is very straight. The body lines are all excellent. Paint shines like a mirror and looks great. The vinyl top has no rust under it and looks great. All of the glass is very nice with no cracks or fog.

This car is very rare - one of only 7,619 produced for the model year, how many left? Not many! and if there is they are not even close to this nice of condition!! This car was well loved and cared for - wow does it show! This car will keep climbing in value as you enjoy it. Has a clean / clear title - mileage is exempt on all vehicles 10 years and older in Michigan.

The 1973 Chrysler Thread
CH43T3C212324 (Canadian Registration car) sold at a RM Sotheby's Auction on Sept 2, 2021, for $8,500.

Sad to see it getting flipped, hope it finds a good home...

I must have missed your original post in the 1973 Chrysler thread....!

New owner probably decided he couldn't deal with Autotemp II - it still has the original controller. Not a big problem though. Just another $800+ or so....

I am aware of some other guys who don't really like B5 blue all that much and that is why I proffered that the owner just wanted a darker, brighter blue. The firewall was not redone - that would have been a real pain.....................

and the seller has a 100% feedback rating that probably helped the sale as well.
100% means nothing, seller has had problems in the past if you read through the feedback comments.

As I posted in the other post on this one:
Michigan? Pictures and the feedback read seems awfully similar to one of the well known flipper dealers up there.

INTENTIONAL MISREPRESENTATION. NOT ORIGINAL MILES. STEER CLEAR

Not as discribed ,.do not believe him , won't return deposit

Truck had multiple problems not disclosed. Would not buy again from these people

Car much worse than described, Seller Deceptive in Listing, Buyer Beware

I do not believe that car has high miles - the underhood firewall area has not been repainted, the wiper motor finish is too original/nice and the underside of the car is too clean to be over 100K miles. Inspecting before buying is the best scenario or having someone put eyes on it.

No I think your wrong there, it is another well cared for high mileage car that has gone around and has been 'Doctored Up' to look low miles. This may have happened well back in it's lifetime say at 50k plus miles, who knows as we and many of these low mileage cars that are appearing as there is no certifiable documentation as to it's actual mileage.

First off it has quite a bit of oil leakage on the sway bar and this is not from a sloppy oil change as the 440 oil filter placement makes for a very clean removal, what is this leak and why? A 16k car shouldn't be leaking like this. My 1977 Plymouth Gran Fury PK41 car at 67+k miles had no such leakage but I'll take that to being well maintained by the state mechanics. It goes back to another recent 500+ mileage car that recently sold with the cheer-leading comment of 'congratulations this one belongs in a museum'.... No this one should look like it came out of a museum and it doesn't.
Also again it comes back to the statement of "This car was well loved and cared for " no it wasn't, fix the leak and fix the A/C.

Why was the underside over it's long lifetime doctored up with spray paint on the undercarriage? Typical detail shop work over the years? Or 'well if we can hide this rust and road grime we can pass this off as a low mileage car'? You would think that if this was a bonafide 16k mileage car you would touch nothing.
Look at the enlargement of the undercarriage picture, springs, rear shock mounts and frame painted black, but look at the brown areas where they missed the undercoating. The brown is a mixture of road dirt or grime, some will say 'no that's rust from not being stored in a climate controlled situation'. Ummm last I knew undercoating doesn't rust, they just missed spraying it or re-undercoating it, maybe this is good enough as buyers are just going to see what they can from getting down on their hands and knees. Also look closely at the rubber fuel line as the transition link from metal frame line to stub metal line, it's got brown road grime from high mileage, rubber don't rust and this at 16k miles should look like 'off the line or showroom'.

The car needs to be looked at in person on a lift by a qualified person that knows these car and actually worked on them back in the 70's/80's to look at all the nooks & crannies to determine actual mileage. With the sellers feed back comments of "INTENTIONAL MISREPRESENTATION. NOT ORIGINAL MILES. STEER CLEAR" I'll bet someone sight unseen other than web pic's once they got their purchase home and took it to someone that knows found out the car wasn't as represented.

That's why Mecum, BaT and others are putting disclaimers and wording their text in AD's about mileage and such, lawsuits can be made and won over false claims, and people with $$$$$$ do it.

Chances are that I have been around these cars in terms of mechanicals as well as esthetics as much as anyone else and in looking at the vehicle in totality, from the underhood silencer pad to exhaust system components and a bunch of other factors some of which I mentioned, this car is unlikely to be high miles in my view. But as you said, and I also said, an eyes on inspection by someone trusted is the best approach.

Great Color combo. I had a 73 NYB coupe in B5 with white top, white buckets, and a sunroof. Wish I still had that one......

Oh I forgot to scope out the underhood pad which is a very hard item to clean/detail so we go to the enlargement, I see roaching/rashing and plenty of brown/grey grunge embedded dirt from way more than 16 thousand miles. next,

The firewall was not redone - that would have been a real pain.....................

I don't know what pictures you are looking at but I see plenty of overspray on the starter relay, over on the ignition module, even looks like they sprayed around the valve covers as the ignition wires appear to have some overspray on them, then look at the wiring over the brake booster, ratty & dirty looking not a 16k car.

Here's a picture of a documented 4k showroom 1977 Plymouth Fury engine bay (wish we had more pictures of this car for a benchmark).

1977 PLYMOUTH FURY COUPE - ONLY 4K TRUE ORIGINAL MILES - $11900 (Omaha).009.jpg



And the very big question would be why was a 16k mileage car painted? No reason given.
