1956 Chrysler New Yorker Description

This car was owned by my friend's dad for a number of years. It was always garage-kept, much loved and well cared for as the photos hopefully show. The car is being presented for sale in Reno, NV and is available to be seen most any time. I'm also happy to answer questions, take specific photos, do a video walk-around or anything else to help interested buyers out.
Mechanically speaking: The car starts, runs and drives well. It just received a tune-up and seems to do everything it's supposed to. It's a bit cold-blooded, but after it warms up it's just fine.
The brakes seem just fine, as does the suspension. The steering pulls a bit to the right so an alignment might not be a bad idea down the road. The power steering works great with no noises. I hear a bit of a hum when turning corners and am guessing it's a wheel bearing? The transmission shifts well and seems healthy enough.
Inside, all switches, knobs and such are present and though some are stiff, they all seem to work. I haven't figured out how to get the radio to work; it makes noises but I don't hear any stations. Both front and rear wing windows are intact and work. So do the electric windows and the electric front seat. The horn button/bracket is broken at the edges, but the horn itself still works. It's quite a horn, I have to add. Very low and imposing.
Cosmetics: The body is pretty darned straight with no real rust issues beyond normal surface rust on any unpainted undercarriage parts (in other words, a good Nevada car). The car looks to have an older repaint, at least on the black portion. The white is a little thin in some areas as you can hopefully see.
All trim and chrome pieces are intact minus the little "C" and "H" on the front end to spell out Chrysler. I believe these pieces are still available for purchase. The chrome is shiny with minor scratches here and there. The same goes for any stainless steel pieces.
The windows are all clean with no water spotting or cracks. Boy, there's a lot of glass on this car and all of it looks good.
The engine and engine bay are relatively clean, or maybe even pretty darned clean, depending on your expectation for an old car. The photos accurately show the engine so use those to help determine cleanliness.
Inside the car has newer upholstery and its original carpet which is largely intact but showing its age. The most significant area of rust is on the driver side floorboard where some carpet is missing. This area has pitted in a small area near the door sill.
The headliner looks original and has minor staining from age and a little water damage at the rear window.
All gauges look to be working, as do all knobs, levers and such. As noted before, some are pretty stiff from lack of exercise. The clock doesn't work and I haven't figured out how to turn on the dash lights yet. All other lights both internally and externally seem to be working, though.
As far as valuation goes, Hagerty shows 1956 Chrysler New Yorker 4-doors selling between $13,000 and $36,000 depending on condition. The average is shown at $20,400. Hopefully our car falls in the "good deal" range based on these numbers, along with those shown on Hemmings, Classic Car and others. If you'd like to see the car please call or text me anytime.
