Niels Marienlund's 1973 New Yorker

I'd like to share with you my 1973 New Yorker Hardtop Sedan. The only things not original are some replacement engine parts and the tires. Everything else is original, stock, and, except for the Chronometer digital clock, it all works - turn signals, lights, radio, A/C, warning lights, defroster, etc. I found it on Craigslist in late July for $1,500, at which point it was sitting for about seven years. I bought it in Cupertino, California from the friend of the son of the previous and only owners, who put only 53,000 miles on it. The old lady was 99 years old when she scraped the passenger side against the edge of the garage door, and to this day I'm spending all my limbs to get it fixed. It was first bought in 1974 and I have all the original papers; even the window sticker. Aside from the big 'accordion' dent, a small dent in the front end, a hole in the vinyl roof, and paint chips here and there, rest assured.
