1966 Chrysler NewportAlways wanted to own a 60's showboat highway cruiser with a beautiful ride? This is the car for you. This 1966 Chrysler Newport convertible is a big, uiet, mooth drive. Torqueflyte automatic trans shifts clean and smooth. Garaged every winter for the past 40 years, t runs, teers, rives and stops great. This is a turn-key, eady-to-drive highway cruiser you can enjoy "as is” for a fraction of what a “numbers matching” rotisserie restored show car would cost you. Like any car from the 60’S It takes a minute or two to warm up upon first starting. No rust on body except some specks above the back passenger wheel skirt. All lights, auges, nd accessories work except radio. Convertible top works as intended. True mileage unknown. Price reflects non-numbers matching engine. Clean Iowa title. Car is for sale locally so I reserve the right to end auction at any time. Deposit required at end of auction. Hagerty.com price for this car in good condition is $17,987.”
I live in Iowa and have owned this car for the past 28 years. I got it from my Dad who was a Chrysler dealer in New Jersey. He owned it for many years after taking it in on trade and replacing the original seized engine with an engine from a Monaco wagon. Little things: takes a few minutes to start when cold. Radio is original but doesn't work. Bench seat slightly off track. Back plastic window on convertible top needs new zipper. Carpets are OK but worn in places. Needs new trunk key. Bumpers have been professionally re-chromed and look like new.
This car is so much fun to drive around town and on little trips.People always comment, histle or remember their first car when they see this beautiful convertible. Each of my five kids drove this car to their Senior Prom. Fabulous for a family or someone who loves the big feel only a car like this can give you.There is nothing like the feel of driving this turn-key, eady to drive and enjoy highway cruiser. It's a beauty. Best of luck bidding!
