Just read up on the switch from left-hand to right-hand traffic in Sweden, the right-hand "general" Lars Skiöld used this Chrysler limosine as his functional service car.
I'm puzzled by this car - it seems to have the Windsor short front fenders, but it as the sill moldings, wheel well moldings and chevrons from a New Yorker.


Not sure why they have the mixed chassis but I like the fact that they reworked the doors to make the fin line look proper. The airport limos I've seen they just put a level fin section between the front door and the back. This one they reshaped the front doors and start the fin on the back door.

This one is an airporter, and has the fin going right up into the front door as well but this is on the long wheelbase (Saratoga).
Just look at the size of those tires, on 15 inch wheels. They're huge.

You can see how the fin line levels off in the middle doors. Easier to do than that formal limo.

I believe this^ is a foto from Robert Hewitt (a childhood in the 50s) who passed away in 2019.

Do you have a bigger version of that picture? Looks like a '58 Windsor.

It's a 57 Desoto Firesweep. It's less than four miles from where I am. If you'd like a different picture, I drive past it every day.

The eBay ad indicates this photo was taken in Texas, but the license plate isn't from Texas, and there are dozens of motels around the country named 'Shamrock Motel and Restaurant'.

So I have no information about this at all, but I thought the composition with the nearly-rolled '58 New Yorker coupe was interesting enough to share.

That photo was taken on boulevard Laurier, looking east, in Quebec City, Canada, almost in front of the Veteran's hospital now known aas the Laval University Hospital.

Here's the same view now. Almost nothing is recognizeable, but I assure you, that's the exact same spot. If you really have a good eye, the main hospital building is still there and you can make out its shape, somewhat.

Far as I recall, just that Anglia had no particular name Ray, the earlier ones was called "hot-dog stands" and the later with the slanted rear window was called "free saturdays" as if the workers quit without finishing the car

That’s one of the coolest looking forward look neons dealership signs I’ve ever seen. I wish I could see it lit up at night. I wonder if it still exists. I guess I could google it but I am afraid I wouldn’t like the answer.

Say, that '57 'sweep on a stick was no easy feat! To get that pole thru the roof and to remain for some 50 years. Appears to have little rust and no drive train though.
Wonder how they managed to make the chassis look "loaded".

It looks like there's a trailer axle type of setup on the front, though probably with flanges welded at the ends of the tube rather than hubs, it's attached across the frame, no wishbones, no torsion bars.

On the back I think I see some restraining bars coming down to the shock absorber mount area.
