It turns out that the Mopar was imported in the Netherlands in 1996. Shes equipped with electric seats, electric windows, central locking system, air conditioning (although thats gone; not really needed here anyway), remote outside mirror, cruise control (no idea if that still works, it scares me) and a hawkeye system which prevents you from blinding opposite traffic. I havent seen another 1962 New Yorker around here, and I know of one 1962 New Yorker Town and Country Wagon in the Netherlands.
