Okay, I know it's not an A body; but somebody needs to give this baby a home!
Came across this while perusing local auctions- I'd get it myself, but I'd need to knock out a wall to fit it into my garage!

Somebody, give this land yacht a berth! '70s Mafia at its finest!

Think of the possibilities-
Stroke it's 400 and run it in Pro/Barge or Super/Fly!!
Start a trend!

I never knew any New Yorker was offered with a 400 engine.

Now that's a sled to be proud of. However, I have no business looking at C-bodies. They make me develop an itch that can only be scratched by owning one. I've slipped the trap so far but I don't think that will continue forever.

$3100 bid is respectable for that. But it looks like a cream puff. Except for the roof damage.

It doesn't look too bad at all- drop the headliner and dolly it out. Good opportunity to "upgrade" to a leopard print vinyl top, too!

Really clean ones in WI/MN since we are such big derby states especially for mopars they can be had from $500-2500 ones like posted here being 2000-2500 and we still wreck em lol im suprised to see it sell that high in my opinion I've owned 30+ newport and new Yorkers Monaco's gran furys strip em and sell off what's good to others and build them. If y'all have never tried derbying. I urge you all to try it at least once!! Most fun you can have with your clothes on I promise you that

Done a couple of derbys when I was a lot younger, and they were a lot of fun no question.
