Question about my Saratoga 3 passenger Coupe '46-'48

Recommended Posts

Chrysler Saratoga 3 passagers Coupe

Build 1946-1948,

The Chrysler blue book states thatthere were only 74 of those cars produced.

I know its a C39, 5.3 Liter, 8 cylinderinline, 134 Horsepower, fluid drive.

post-98286-143142326601_thumb.jpgNow my question is:

Is it true that only 74 were producedand how many cars still exist today( I never saw one in person, otherthen my own).

What would the approximate value ofthis car be?

I'm looking at Jerry Heasley's "The Production Figure Book for U.S. Cars" 1977 which states

'46-48 combined 3p coupes per model:

Royal C38S 1,221

Windsor C38W 1,980

Saratoga C39K 74

New Yorker C39S 701

Truly impossible to know how many still exist today. Yours looks like an outstanding example. Congratulations.

Bob, before it gets loaded onto any ships give me a call!


Bob, please pardon me I should have included, "Please" and "Thank You" in my post.

I could park your 3-window between our 48 New Yorker, two door sedan, and our 3-window Concord and I could probably hook a trailer to the New Yorker and pull that Imperial 3-window cpe. that you are building all back here to Pennsyltucky.

Spring is on the way,

What was the difference between the Saratoga and the New Yorker? I assume price, but what did one have the other did not? Also, is there an authoritative source on the differences between the different years of the post-war Chryslers (i.e. between a '46, '47, '48, and 1st series '49 of the same model)?
