You want the New Yorker but those are made of unobtainium.    41 is the year (as  you posted above) or maybe 42.  Post war the styling is different (but still attractive).

 

Check out this thread where I posted a New Yorker 3 window that got shipped off to Europe when it sold:

Desoto made one as well.  I found a pretty good original one on our local craigslist that I turned a member on here to that bought it.  It was a 41  and turn key in pretty good original shape for I believe around 11G.  One of hte few people that ever thanked me for finding them a car and actually followed through and bought it.

For Mopar,  41 is the year you want.   I went through a phase about 5 years ago were I was trying to find one for my son as a HS car.    I would aim for the 8 cylinder Chrysler and then fall back on the Desoto (which has the bigger 6) and then the Dodge.  Plymouth did not make a 3 window.   You will see a nice 41 of all of the above maybe 2 or 3 times a year.

 

If you want to bring back one from Europe this is available.    http://www.stolzeclassiccars.nl/aanbod/3751/de-soto-business-coupe/

 I contacted that guy in Europe regarding the 1941 De Soto original paint three window coupe. He wants €32,500 and will not move on the price. By the time you get it to your door here in the states you’re probably talking $50,000. I would pay $100,000 for the right car, but not one that needs absolutely everything.

 I agree. Even in show quality condition that would be pushing it. He told me that if I could find another one at that price go ahead and buy it. I think he was kind a rude about it to be honest. I was hoping that he would counter offer somewhere in the 20s but he did not so I just let it go.

Strretside has this 41 Desoto listed for 56995. It's not quite stock but still has a vintage be it hopped up powerplant. 

https://www.racingjunk.com/Desoto/183100558/1941-DeSoto-Custom-Business-Coupe.html

I couldn't copy the photo from their site so it's a bit grainy.

 

$56,995 is a lot of money for a Desoto but I could see you spending that much pretty quick on a 10k starter.

Yeah,  the Stude is pretty cool. I think I might like that better than the Desoto.

 

This 1937 Dictator Coupe Deluxe was purchased new by my great uncle and driven sparingly until he passed away in 1960. At that time, my father bought it and put it into storage with about 48K miles. Although it sat idle, he dutifully sprayed oil in each cylinder yearly. I acquired this classic in 2008 and it has been stored in my dry aircraft hangar in Bigfork, Montana since. Clear Montana title. In 2010 I bought a treasure trove of parts from a gentlemen who had restored a 1937 Studebaker to stock but then decided to hotrod his car. These parts are not installed but are all included. With this package, I obtained an entire running drive train to include running engine, rare optional overdrive transmission, matching rear axle for overdrive tranny, new exhaust system, reconditioned radiator, powder coated original wheels, reproduction vintage tires, 2 extra wheels with tires, reconditioned gas tank, new shocks, an excellent correct straight spare frame and boxes and boxes of additional spare parts...generators, another transmission, a non running additional motor and lots more too countless to list. Original interior. Repainted original color in late 50s. This Studie is a renown classic and the last year of the Dictator model. Very collectable. Currently, I consider this vehicle to be rolling stock, with a lot of valuable parts for restoration. This coupe is the more desirable Model 6A with independent front suspension.

To get my 46 NY coupe on the road I started with a 46 Windsor bus cp and a 48 NY 4dr sedan.

Both were pretty rough.

It only took a couple of years and a lot of work.

And yea, I ruined it with a 392 Hemi and a four speed.

Oh, sorry bout that.

Dual carbs and a high compression head with split exhaust.

Not many will look down their noses at that one.

Although I wouldn't pay up that much, these cars are getting just about impossible to find in any kind of usable condition.

How is the search going?   Did you ever find one?   I see there is zero out there right now for 1941.
