There are a lot of similarities of this car to the Pinner Chrysler New Yorker that I owned. The first thing that I noticed is how the drivers door on this Chrysler is raised at the front edge of the window. The second is the size of the glass partition between the drivers compartment and the passenger compartment. I clearly remember Jack discussing how the people that worked at Pinner building doors, also worked for the other body builders in the Memphis area. The one name that I remember is Clay, as the person that built the rear doors at Pinner, however, I don't remember his last name.

I was basing my thoughts on the glass treatment.it is the same as the 59 Memphis Mercury that has popped up a couple times. As you can't see the rear.

The roof-side trim & side flasher/light are very similar to what M-M did on the '60-'62 Guardians.
