1967 Chrysler Newport
A real time-warp find!
This is a really authentic, great condition Chrysler Newport 4 door sedan. The car is very original in all aspects and is a rare and wonderful find. Although not necessarily considered a "collectable" by purist standards, its sheer condition makes her so.
This is a genuine 1 owner car that spent its early life in Minneapolis and then in Illinois and showing a very low 26,000 miles. We do not know whether this is true mileage but we do know the car has sat in a barn for more than 25 years. She certainly looks every bit of a 26,000 mile example. It still sports its original spare tyre that has NEVER been used. These tyres have not been in production for more than 30 years now.
So original is this Newport, that in 2008 it was used as a prop in the 60's set movie "A serious man". See screen capture image below.
Finished in dark brown metallic ("Mahogany/Sepia poly") it comes with a cool gold & Aztec interior.
This Chrysler has has been recently gone over by a local work-shop and everything is in good operating condition. A new factory specification exhaust system was fitted ($800) as the original one was completely "thin". This was done by the archaelogists who discovered her in the barn. Having said that, as a result, the engine runs smooth and powerful. Brakes are good and the car stops sure. All features and functions work well.
The paint on the entire car is 100% original without any respray in any part. The body is mostly rust free but for some light scale in some areas. This is strictly "paint-deep" surface rust from barn sitting. The underside is clean. The whole car is very straight, accident free and has never had any body repair. This is evidenced by the original factory stickers and markings on the inside edges and under the hood. For original paint, it is stunning with a deep luster and shine. There are nicks and minor chips but nothing major and certainly nothing that needs repairing. It is very shiny, consistent and simply looks great from close and afar. Although not perfect, VERY impressive for a 50 year old car!
All rubber, glass and trim fixtures are in wonderful condition without any signs of fading, marks or scratches. The hubcaps are without any scuffs or rashes and look perfect. The bumpers and wheel arch mouldings are virtually prefect.
The interior is absolutely fantastic! Finished in 2-tone gold, she looks incredibly sharp. The dash is perfect without any sun-fading or cracking. All the vinyl, faux wood and carpets are great. The dash cluster is clean and straight. The steering wheel is without a single crack. The vinyl seats are in simply amazing presentation and condition, totally clean and tidy. On the back seat, however, there is some cracking on the top surface. Not bad enough to replace and a good 60's blanket on the rear parcel shelf is all that is warranted (in my opinion). The interior condition is surely the best testament for a low mileage example. Carpets, door panels, handles, switches, knobs and every little item is excellent. The headliner is good without any tears or marks. Otherwise perfect. The interior is without doubt a 9.5 out of 10. Just stunning.
The car all round is very original in all respects. Sporting original hubcaps on original rims.
The car comes with its original operating manual, build sheets, first sale delivery invoice and even service receipts from 1967! (see pix)
Overall, this Chrysler Newport sedan is an excellent unrestored and original example. Although not a "show car" by true definition, it certainly ranks very high in its current collectible condition. You could certainly drive her with pride as-is to your next Mopar meet and attract a lot of attention. It ranks a clear 9-out-of-10 driver condition and would make a great low-cost investment for any 60s car collection.
The 1965s Newport was built on an all-new Chrysler C platform, shared with the 300 and New Yorker, along with the Dodge Polara and Plymouth Fury. Styling mimicked the square lines of the Lincoln Continental and the 1964 Imperial, while wheelbases increased 2 in (51 mm) to 124 in (3,150 mm) (wagons continued on the 122 in (3,099 mm) wheelbase). All body styles were continued from 1964 including the pillared four-door sedan, four-door hardtop sedan, two-door hardtop coupe, and convertible, along with the station wagon, which was renamed the Chrysler Town and Country and became a separate series.
The standard engine for the 1965 Newport was the 383 cu in (6.3 L) V8 with two-barrel carburetor and 270 hp (201 kW; 274 PS), designed for use of regular gasoline of 92–94 Research octane. Optionally available at extra cost was the 383 with four-barrel carburetion and 315 hp (235 kW; 319 PS) with higher compression and required premium fuel of 98–100 octane rating. The standard transmission was a three-speed column shifted manual and optionally available was the three-speed Torqueflite automatic transmission, now featuring a column-mounted shifter replacing the pushbuttons of previous years as was changeover on all 1965 model year Chrysler Corporation cars and trucks.
Interiors featured padded instrument panels, full carpeting and choices of cloth-and-vinyl or all-vinyl bench seats and notchback bench seats with armrest.
1966 Chrysler Newport coupe
The 1966 Newport received new grille work and revised taillights, but was otherwise changed very little from 1965. Engine offerings were revised with the 270 hp (201 kW; 274 PS) 383 cu in (6.3 L) two-barrel continuing as standard equipment while the four-barrel 383 received a 10 hp (7 kW; 10 PS) increase to 325 hp (242 kW; 330 PS).
1967 Chrysler Newport
For 1967, the Newport and other Chryslers received new sheet metal, but retained the basic 1965 bodyshell. Two-door hardtops received a new angular semi-fastback roofline featuring reverse-slant side windows while the rooflines of four-door pillared and hardtop sedans, and station wagons were unchanged. Engines were unchanged.

This Chrysler is part of a private collection. I am not a broker or retail-style car dealer; although licensed, I am a professional car collector of some35 years with considerable experience and knowledge of British and European Cars. I have a long standing reputation being associated with Rolls-Royce and Bentley Motor cars which I take seriously.I take a lot of pride in my cars and have fun in collecting and restoring them.However, auctions are not a game so when you place a bid or offer, and you are the winning bidder, please understand you have entered a binding contract.You cannot bid and win the auction and expect not to meet the terms and conditions. Bidding and/or winning does not mean you are expecting me to “hold” the car until you have the opportunity to inspect it. Any inspection contemplated should be undertaken BEFORE you bid or make an offer and I openly welcome any potential buyer to come and personally inspect the car. Once you bid ormake an offer, you are doing so to buy WITHOUT conditions. A $1500.00 deposit (non-refundable) is required within 24 hours of the close of the auction and payable by PayPal.The balance of funds are required within 7 days of the close of the auction and must be provided by cashier’s check or bank wire.I cannot accept PayPal for the balance unless you are willing to meet the cost of transfer fees. Full payment must be made (and payments cleared) before the title and/or the vehicle is released. All payments are non-refundable. Payments as described above form an important part of this purchase contract and so, if all the funds are not received as outlined above, I reserve the right to terminate the transaction without notice. If there has been any deposit or other part payments received and I elect to terminate the contract, I reserve the right to keep any such deposits or payments and resell the vehicle to another bidder or interested party or re-list the vehicle at any time. I am happy to assist with shipping arrangements on a national and worldwide basis but the winning bidder takes full responsibility for pickup and/or shipping and at his cost.
As a collector and experienced restorer of classic cars, I make every effort to bring my cars to a very high standard. Unless specifically stated, the car is not of show standard but of good quality "driver" condition. Please understand, the very nature of these classics is such that it is not always possible to attend to every single item, or perhaps I may have inadvertently overlooked an item. Please note, fitted radio/stereo systems are usually subject to upgrade by purchasers so I do not ensure operation of these. Further, a feature or function that is working perfectly one moment, may decide to play-up the next. After all, it is some 50 years old. For this reason it is necessary for the following condition:
The vehicle is being sold "as-is/where-is"with no warranty expressed, written or implied.Any descriptions or representations are made with reasonable judgment and all efforts are made to ensure fair assessment andaccuracy but they are for descriptive and identification purposes only and are not to be construed as a warranty of any type. The seller shall not be responsible forerrors in description, authenticity, genuineness, or defects herein and makes no warranty in connection therewith. No allowance or set aside will be made on account of any incorrectness, unforeseen imperfection, defect or damage.It is the responsibility of the buyer to have satisfied himself as to the condition and value and to bid based upon that judgment solely.The seller shall and will make every reasonable effort to disclose any known defects at the buyer’s request prior to the close of the auction. Seller assumes no responsibility for any repairs regardless of any oral statements about the vehicle.Being a classic car in excess of 10 years of age, in most US states, the mileage may be recorded as “exempt”. In this regard the seller makes no warranties as to the accuracy of the mileage indicated or shown. I can hold the vehicle up to 30 days while you arrange shipping but you must immediately insure it. I will not bear any responsibility for any additional costs including storage, transportation, or repair after the close of the auction. Whereas I am happy to store the car in excess of 30 days from auction end, a cost of $35 per day shall apply beyond 30 days of auction end. Also, you must remember that this is a classic +/-50 year old vehicle, and while it is up to you, I do not recommend that you just “hop in and drive it across the country”. At least, I have never done that. I have always professionally transported the cars in enclosed carriers from where I bought them to my home.
PLEASE; IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ABIDE BY THESE TERMS,MESSGAE ME BEFORE YOU BID AS, RESPECTFULLY, THERE CAN BE NO EXCEPTIONS.
