1968 Chrysler Newport *Deposit Taken* For Sale
Beautiful 1968 Chrysler Newport pillarless coupe up for sale. Just in time for Spring….drop the windows and hit the road in this elegant land yacht with its purring 6.3litre V8 engine. Smooth 3 speed automatic transmission, starts on the button and drives lovely with power steering and comfy bench seats. Tax and MOT exempt (however was MOT’d Oct 2017), 96k on the clock and comes with lots of history / paperwork including the original owner’s manual and first owner’s details. Completely solid and rust free, it has been professionally undersealed during my ownership and I have also had the following done: New starter motor New plugs, points and condenser New battery, coil and ignition leads New fan belt Carb stripped, cleaned and engine tuned Correct hubcaps purchased from US The car comes with a fitted cover which is fully breathable. Brakes and tyres are very good, paintwork is in very good condition for a 52 year old car and shines up beautifully with just a couple of areas of micro blistering on the bonnet which are barely noticeable. All panels are straight with no dents and the chrome bumpers are straight and in very good condition (rear one is almost like new!) All 4 windows wind up and down, the air conditioning / blower doesn’t currently work – probably an easy fix however I’ve never bothered as I think the car looks best with the windows down! All lights work (external and internal), wipers, horn, seatbelts, door locks etc. The interior does have age related wear and tear: Top of the dashboard is cracked from the sun however I have fitted a bespoke dashboard cover so not visible Rear seats also have some cracks but are covered Indicators work however you need to hold the stick up or down while indicating At some point in its life the car had a sunroof fitted but it doesn’t open Original radio not working however there is a working cassette player fitted for your old 60’s tapes! No carpet / trunk lining in the boot - could easily be fitted Dashboard and door cards could do with refurbishing Rear parcel shelf is damaged and could do with replacing or just covering (hole where the speaker should be) All in all she is not perfect but is a lovely old girl and great fun to drive, I would love to keep her but due to my work and other vehicles I just don’t have the time to enjoy her as much as I’d like to. A great investment which will only go up in value, reasonable offers considered and viewings are welcome (Dibden Purlieu near Southampton) Can arrange delivery if required (allowed during lockdown with contact free collection / delivery).
