    If it's a regular sedan, it's one of the most common of the 1950 models. In order of price, from low to high, the Chrysler models that year were Royal, Windsor, Saratoga, New Yorker, and Imperial. Here are some specs for the 1950 Windsor sedan:

    Classic Car Specifications, Engine, Wheelbase, production numbers, VIN numbers for Antique Cars, Classic Cars, Vintage Cars and Muscle Cars (at http://classiccardatabase.com/specs.php?series=4792&year=1950&model=25217 )

    As you can see, more than 78,000 were built. Were it the longer version, it would be much more rare:

    Classic Car Specifications, Engine, Wheelbase, production numbers, VIN numbers for Antique Cars, Classic Cars, Vintage Cars and Muscle Cars (at http://classiccardatabase.com/specs.php?series=4792&year=1950&model=25219 )

    Same for the Traveler sedan:

    Classic Car Specifications, Engine, Wheelbase, production numbers, VIN numbers for Antique Cars, Classic Cars, Vintage Cars and Muscle Cars (at http://classiccardatabase.com/specs.php?series=4792&year=1950&model=25222 )

    I've not found any breakouts for the Highlander option, but I don't think it's rare, as it was offered for several years after WWII. As for value, here's what NADA says:

    1950 Chrysler Windsor 4 Door Sedan Values (at http://www.nadaguides.com/Classic-Cars/1950/Chrysler/Windsor/4-Door-Sedan/Values )

    These are their estimates, and should not be considered a reflection of real market value, which should also take location and demand into consideration. You might google 1950 Windsors for sale, and see what they're currently asking. In your case, if the car is in excellent condition with its options and low miles, you could probably justify asking close to the higher amounts.
