I really like that 73 New Yorker Brougham.... it was the comparible to the Electra Limited or Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Regency, which really did sell in higher #s. Over 100,000 Electra 4dr sold in 1973. I like the Electra too and actually owned a 72 Electra. What a car. The other comp from Ford Motor Co would have been the Mercury Marquis Brougham..

compare and enjoy...
