1967 Chrysler Newport CustomHi, and thanks for looking at my auction for this rareand cool 1967 ChryslerNewport Custom Coupe. Ibought this a project with the full intention of restoring it and found out two weeks later I was going to have to move long distance for my job or lose it, so I am moving....but anyways, what we have here is a pretty solid (for east coast) car that I have almostrepaired to the point it wasdrivable. Then I found out the valves were sticking so bad it bent a bunch of push rods and the heads will have to come off. The car has a 1967 coded 383 4V engine with a 727 automatic and 8 3/4rear end. It does not have many options, as far I can tell just power steering, power brakes, AM radio, fender mountedturn signals, and thats about it. It has most of the parts to a Mk IVaftermarket AC system still attached. The compressor has been removed but it is included, I wouldimagine it is no good. I have installed the following brand new parts:
Edelbrock 650 AVS Thunder Series Carb with electric choke, almost identical to the factory 4bbl, just a little bigger.Spectrereproduction gas tank and senderSpectre 26" all metal radiatorAllnew radiator hosesMoser Green Bearing kit for the 8.75Four new P215 75 R14 tiresAll new brakes, wheelcylinders, hoses, and master cylinderFuel line replaced with 3/8 copper, (may want to redo with steel)Remanufactured Alternator and Starter.New wiper blades - originals haddisintegrated.New spark plugs and wires
As far as the car goes, I have not driven it, I did have the engine running three times, and I have video of it running. It does have rust, surface and otherwise, as you can see. Its an oldmopar, they all have rust! Like I said earlier it is mostly solid except for the trunk floor,which is pretty bad. I think a patch panel is available from Classic 2 Current, as well as most other floor parts. The front footwell area has some holes but none are very big and might be able to be patched with just a piece of flat sheet. Of course, therear rockers have some holes as well, mostly the passenger side. There are small spots sort of in different places, but all the frame parts and k member are all solid. Doors open and close good. I do not think this caroriginally had a vinyl top. I washoping to find the build sheet but so far I have not found it, but i have not pulled the carpet or the front seat.
Theengine did run (and pretty well!) but the valves are so sticky that it slowly bent the pushrods until they started falling out, then itwouldn't start anymore. I do not have time to pull the heads and get that problem fixed. If I did I would pull the whole engine and re-seal and paint everything. I canalsorecommend replacing the oil pan.Some moron in history put ajack stand or jack into the oil pan which pushed it in and caused a pinhole. I ground it down with wire wheel and patched it with jbweld. I don't think the car had been runsince thathappened, looks like it happened years ago.
I have not messed with theinterior much other than clean it out, the headliner and some trim is down but it was all in the trunk so I have saved it all as well as the headliner bows. I do have some oftheoriginal paperwork, thecerticard is still in the holder, etc.
If you have any questions about this car, just ask! It is located in Radford, VA, zip code 24141,just off I-81. I amwithin afive hour drive from Charlotte, DC, Charleston, Southern Ohio, Southern PA, Norfolk, Richmond, Knoxville, and more.You will have to provide your owntransportation, and I will try to help with that as much as possible. -Car is notdrivable- just so we are clear on that.
Good Luck! Must Sell, Moving 1000 miles in December and can't take it with me...:(
