1978 Chrysler Newport

I have decided to let go my eye catching Clone Car. No this is not the exact model or year as the Adam 12 car or the Blues Brothers Dodge Monaco but this is one beautiful car. It is as fun to drive as it is to look at. It has fresh paint and is very solid. The rear quarter panels are in great shape as well as the trunk as you can see from the pictures. The interior is a 9 out of 10 when you consider it is the original interior in a 1978 car. The engine is clean and runs really well and transmission pulls great.Is this car going to win a national car show id say no but I guarantee you they will be lined up to look at it. Here is the bad.Small Valve cover leak on both sides drip a small amount of oil on the exhaust. The indicator for the speedometerhas broken so you can not tell your MPH. The A/C does not work I would guess it just needs to be converted to 134a. The aftermarket radio needs to be replaced. and I believe it needs brake lights.If it sets for a week or too there is a lifter noise for about 3 seconds when you start the car until it builds oil pressure. The retro police lights and siren are unhooked and disabled but come in the car. Anyone is welcome to see the car in person and it really is a head turner and really does drive great. The brakes are spot on as well.
