The Newport range was built on Chrysler’s “C” platform along with the New Yorker and 300. Power came from the venerable 383 (6200cc) which produced 270bhp with the standard two barrel carburettor. These were cars of status, pitched against the lower end of the Lincoln and Cadillac ranges and shared a passing resemblance to the Lincoln Continental. The elegant lines of the coupe fitted the New York scene of the mid-sixties perfectly; Audrey Hepburn amongst others owned one. They are quite rare now, perhaps because the coupe was significantly more expensive than the saloon.

This car is a 1966 model Chrysler Newport Coupe in Sequoia (dark green) metallic. It had just one owner followed by a family for many years in the States until it was bought by an English collector in Minnesota and driven 2000 miles to Miami docks for import to the UK. It has been with the same owner here since 2003 and has been driven all over the UK and France and has been the course car at Goodwood and Classic Le Mans.

This is a very original, matching numbers car. The body is in excellent condition with straight original panels – it has been repainted but never been restored. The gearbox, brakes, steering and suspension are all very good and the 383 V8 is tight and powerful – it was overhauled in 2006 and has had comprehensive maintenance through its life, drives beautifully and is surprisingly rapid for a large car. The interior is all original and in good order (take a look at that ultra-cool period dashboard and diagonally folding front seats) and the factory fit Chrysler radio still works.
There is an interesting history file containing the original handbook/service book, documents from its time in the States and history covering its years in the UK. There is also a copy of “Classic and American” March 2007 with a four page feature on this car.

This Chrysler is rare, draws a crowd wherever it goes and is addictive to drive or ride in. Superb value! Please call if you need more info.

Viewing near Woburn, Beds. P/X British classic car possible.
