This 1962 New Yorker wagon looks like an early ’60s vision of the future, inside and out. It’s a lot to take in, with the slanted stacked headlights, horizontal tailfins and pillarless hard top styling. But the wagon body actually pulls it all together far more successfully than the commonly seen sedans.
The car has been off the road and garaged for some time, and the interior is incredibly well preserved. Check out all the buttons and switches on that space-age dash!
The list of mechanical issues to be addressed is short and straightforward, including brakes, an exhaust leak, gas tank leak, and an a/c hose leak—nothing that couldn’t be dealt with at home. The seller says the car jumps to life quickly and that the doors shut solidly.
These cars are rare, rare, rare, and they represent a kind of an aesthetic detour from mainstream automotive evolution. I’d like to see this one brought back to life and loaded up with nine passengers, cruising to the beach. See the listing here.
