Not sure what the cost is to sell with them

$99 for a 7 day listing.  You have to send a few good photos and have your car accepted.  When accepted they will assign you an auction specialist to help write the add and set the reserve.  From my experience I would go "no reserve"  They get a lot more attention and sell better and this is a NICE and unusual car.  As  mentioned by others wagons are popular now.  On the other hand if you are searching for $25K go the Hemmings route.

Great car, and the Forward Look crowd would eat it up in a heartbeat. The 3-speed manual was standard on Newport and Windsor models.

They made 1,832 Newport Town & Country 6-pass. wagons in '61, and 1,571 Newport Town & Country 9-pass. wagons - which is it?

If it's as good as it looks, I'm at the $20-30K range, and suggest putting it on  Bring a Trailer.

It will give you global exposure (so will Hemmings), and to some funksters the manual tranny is a plus.  

Just 3% of Chryslers had a manual in 1961, so given the low T&C numbers yours must be one of very few that remain.

That looks like a very nice car, and thanks for pointing it out.

(It could even be a separate listing in the "Not Mine" for-sale category.)

 

However, I'll note for the original poster's benefit that 

asking prices may sometimes be double a car's worth.

Therefore, SELLING prices, not asking prices, are what count.

Overpricing wastes everyone's time.  I can't say the

value of this 1957 Chrysler, but it is appealing.
