There's just something about a classic Mopar that makes you pay
attention, especially with this 1967 Chrysler Newport. It's not
just the big V8, low mileage, 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 factory-correct Turbine Bronze Metallic on this coupe represents it perfectly. After all, Chrysler had those experimental turbine cars, and this standout color was shared with those futuristic machines. This finish is an ideal mix of originality and updating to keep it shining correctly, and the overall look reminds you that this is a well-respected low-mileage machine (avenging only around 900 miles annually.) You can also tell how much they cared about keeping this one original with great details like factory wheel covers, rear fender skirts, and snug from-fitting bumpers. These full-sized Chryslers really have a terrific aggressive attitude due to the imposing stance the designers built into the sheetmetal. You see it in the extensions on the fenders that look like they just want to reach out and grab you with both arms. The thick C-pillar and full-length body creases really drive home how substantial this coupe is.
Full-sized comfort was the name of the game in 1967. The highly-stylized front bench with fold-down armrest has two different textures of black vinyl to give it plenty of distinction. The seats and door panels have a clean look, which is once again a testament to this coupe's level of care. The back seat is just as nice, and even as a two-door, there's plenty of stretch out room for rear-seat passengers. The dash is a bright and clean setup that has the right look for a wide '60s cruiser. And you'll love the originality of it all, right down to the AM radio that's still on display.
Under the hood is the big 383 cubic-inch V8, and it shows signs of being the original motor. It fires up with the kind of ease that tells you this low mileage coupe was nicely look after. This has the right kind of power and torque to move this large Chrysler with authority. And this coupe knows how to remain a true boulevard cruiser with features like power steering, power brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission.
This is a classic car that gets attention because no one else at the car show brought one. But more than just being an endangered species, this large Chrysler is one of the most affordable and complete vintage Mopar coupes you can get your hands on right now. Call soon!
