    I just noted in looking at Scott's registry dated March 6, 2021 that this car is already listed there, albeit listed with a green roof while the body code plate of this one shows black. Or did this just happen and the date of the list currently on his website was not changed??? Was there more movement taking place before this purchase on July 4th??? Something was going on.

    I wish that Scott had continued to maintain in each cars' description where the cars are located like in the past when he noted owned by "collector in Edmonton" etc. Maybe there were identity concerns or he didn't want to keep up with changing owners???

    Great car. My grandfathers car, similar, had the same pattern. Only other time I have seen it is here now. Congrats on the car. Gotta love that Chrysler green. I had a 71 300 in that color combo.

    I am just how stunned I am at your find. I have NEVER seen a New Yorker or Newport in the junkyard with a sunroof, and I have been to a lot of junkyards. What a treasure you have!

    The raised letter tires just don't seem to go with such a prestigious car, however.

    Hope you bring it to some shows. Does the 8-track work?

    I believe so. I thought that bright green New Yorker on Facebook looked familiar.

    So it must have changed hands already. The OP was in Webster NY, and the NY’r is not on his FB page.
