Thank you! This is the confirmation I needed that the 3-spoke steering wheel crest is the same for 1972 NYer and 1973 NYB.
It also was the same on a ' 72 Newport Custom and a '72 Newport Royal as well as a '71 Newport. I owned those cars aeons ago but clearly remember many of the details

Funny that you should ask. I was focusing on the crest, but wondering also about the texture of the rim. How’s yours?

Smooth and shiny finish (so was it on all fuselage era C-Bodies I've owned in the past). Never saw a textured rim on a Fuselage C.
I believe the steering wheel you are currently using came from a B-Body.
Someone please prove me wrong

C-body steering wheels had a smooth surface. 1971 and later B-body steering wheels had a textured surface. According to my superficial and unfounded observation, the textured wheels seem to withstand sun and heat better without cracking than smooth ones.

I just got word that this car went to Germany.
Here is another JF1 Mist Green NYB. CS43T3C212236 seems to be on sale again on FB in Indiana. She has been for sale a number of times, with a decade-long owner's selling it and then buying it back before posting it again in the past 5 years. Here is a thread with links. Here is another from 2018. I have several others in my records -- love the color combo, but I already own a 1973 NYB (Ming) and don't need another.

The engine pic shows the fender tag and confirms that this JF1 is one and the same car. 96k miles, engine and trans rebuilt, ask is $12k. From the ad:

"1973 Chrysler New Yorker Brougham 4 door hardtop. Rust free, from Arizona. Rebuilt engine & transmission, less than 500 miles ago. 440 V8, TorqueFlite automatic. The engine and transmission have been rebuilt. I've just changed the engine oil & filter again. The power windows need a thorough exploration. Everything is there, yet the wiring is messed up. You'll notice that 2 letters are missing from CHRYSLER on the front panel, but they are in the trunk. Carburettor has been converted to manual choke. "
