1966 Chrysler Newport
There's just something about a classic Mopar that makes you pay attention, especially with this 1966 Chrysler Newport. It's not just the big V8, impressive paperwork, or the cool hardtop styling. Instead, this one gets you with its details that makes this both premium and aggressive. And it's all available right now for a value price.
The cream color on this coupe represents it perfectly. After all, Chrysler was the premium side of Mopar, and the level of gloss on this respray gives it a regal finish. But Chrysler coupes like this also appeared in plenty of TV shows and movies as the enforcer's car because of the imposing stance the designers built into the sheet metal. You see it in the extra wide chrome grille that immediately announces this is a full-sized machine. The extensions on the fenders look like they just want to reach out and grab you with both arms. But aggression was also nicely mixed with flair. This has a terrific style line where the trim starts next to the headlights, and it runs along the body crease as an unbroken line down the entire profile even concealing the door handles. Plus, the fender skirts mean there's another unbroken line around the rockers. Plus, those taillights that curve outward to follow the rear fender is pure class.
Inside, multiple shade of earth tones adds depth to a well-coordinated total package. You'll absolutely love the look of the classic Chrysler steering wheel. The dash was one of the best mixes of style and info around, so we're happy to see it so well preserved. This is a full-sized classic, and so there's plenty of room for family and friends. That's why they'll love the comfortable cloth seats. No matter how many people are along for the ride, everyone will appreciate more modern cruising tunes with the Kenwood AM/FM/CD/XM stereo w/iPod input cleanly installed under the dash.
Another reason why these Chryslers were TV stars was because everyone knew they could provide big power. As you look under the hood of this one, you can tell it upholds that tradition by being upgraded for both show and go. The bright air topper, matching valve covers, and overall tidy setup is quite attractive. Beneath the style lies the substance of the mighty 383 cubic-inch V8. It's already famous for providing plenty of power, and this one takes it up a notch with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. Out on the road, this strong V8 moves this coupe with authority. Plus, with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes, this Newport knows how to provide an easy-cruising experience.
The sale comes complete with the original window sticker, maintenance receipts, and a service manual. So you can chose to show it off as a well-preserved classic, or just arrive at the car show as the enforcer... but you can't do any of that unless you're the first to grab this deal. Call now!
