50's, 60's, & 70's Full size Convertibles
I badly wanted a 58 New Yorker Convertible, but did not want to sell my first born, and to be honest, after seeing a late 50's convertible in person, kind of liked the 60's full sizer's better. After looking at a GTO convertible, didn't want to spend so much money on a car I would be afraid to drive it. Ended up with a 67 Ford Galaxie 500 XL convertible, a boat to be sure, but so many people had a Galaxie growing up, surprising number left, and surprising intereset in it.
So, how different was a 58 New Yorker Convertible from say, an early 70's Chrysler 300 convertible?
What year/make/model would make the best deal to buy, the parameters being:
1. Bang for you buck
2. At a minimum, at least holds it value.
4. Cost of ownership (parts, maintenance, etc.)
I'm getting 14 mpg in mine, but women much prefer it to my old Miata, surprisingly.
