This piece was dropped on my doorstep last week. The 1958 Chrysler New Yorker from Danbury Mint in Spring & Cypress Greens.

The two-tone colors did help sell that Chrysler, and I just love the chrome and fins of the 50's cars as well.

A '48 Chevy? I've been limiting my die-casts to cars of the 50's except for some dragsters and Pro-Stocks.

Love the old Chryslers.

That 48 Chevy is VERY nice. Nick, that's close enough to 50's :P

I just saw pics of the '48 Chevy on their website, and while nice, it's not joining my stable of cars.

Nice on. We had a 1978 New Yorker almost the same color. It had an oil leak from the word go they never could find. My dad called up old Iacocca himself and when the dust settled, we had gotten back every dime spent. Dad went across the street and bought a Old's 98 with one of the early diesel engines. I always hated that Olds! :lol:

Mine either ... unless I find one at about $50.00. I already have more cars than I'll ever be able to display and I have the kits.

I have a display case with room for more die-casts and also for another shelf or two(?). I also have a display case for my  built ups with room for another shelf as well. I better get building.
