Price of the cars when new

I remember reading somewhere in the papers of my car, that it was originally bought in NC for about 22,000$ in 1961. if you convert that in today's money, its about $150K, which is kind of hard to believe honestly.

How much did the 1961 220's sell for brand new way back in the day? just curious.
