For Sale: 1963 Chrysler Newport in Atlanta, Georgia

Vehicle Description

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1963 Chrysler Newport Convertible. This Newport was sold new through Wagstaff Chrysler on Spring Street in Atlanta (some neat history and period photos of this dealership can be found here https://theoldmotor.com/?p=169486). It was purchased in January of 1964 by a lady in Atlanta who kept it until 2009 when she sold it to the current owner, a long-time friend. 98,000 believed original miles.

Powered by a 361 cubic inch V8 with a Torqueflite push-button automatic. Optioned with power steering, power brakes, power windows and power top. Although it shows to a driver standard cosmetically, it's seen lots of service and refurbishment work over the past ten years - front end rebuild, brakes, radiator/cooling system rebuild, exhaust, transmission reseal, electronic ignition, seat upholstery, speedometer rebuild and calibration, AM/FM conversion/rebuild of original radio with new speakers and more.

This Newport runs and drives surprisingly well and is solid overall - it was repainted to a fair standard many years ago and has a number of paint flaws along with some bubbling on the rockers, but the car is straight and the underside is in good original condition.

Drive and enjoy as-is (this is a great weekend cruiser or parade car) or take it to the next level. Hagerty reports that only 2,176 Newport convertibles were produced for the '63 model year - that rarity along with known history to new, stacks of service records, original owners manual and warranty book make this an interesting choice and an excellent value.
