1968 Chrysler Newport $24,995
There's just something about a classic Mopar that makes you pay attention, especially with this 1968 Chrysler Newport. It's not just the big V8 or the cool hardtop sedan 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 Meadow Green Metallic color on this car represents it perfectly. After all, it's the kind of green you expect on a '60s machine. Plus, Chrysler was the premium side of Mopar, and so the clearcoat gloss of a more recent respray gives it a nice look in the sunshine. But Chrysler products like this also appeared in plenty of TV shows and movies as the enforcer's car because of the imposing stance the designers built into the sheetmetal. You see it in the extra wide grille that has an intimidating point and immediately announces this is a full-sized machine. The extensions on the fenders look like they just want to reach out and grab you with both arms. And the black wheels with dog dish hub caps are pure police interceptor style. But aggression was also nicely mixed with flair. This has a terrific style line with a defined crease in the sheetmetal running the full profile. Plus, the fender skirts mean there's another unbroken line around the rockers. The chrome bumpers neatly fit into the car's design, and nothing beats the look of a pillarless hardtop sedan.
Inside, more tones of green add depth to a well-coordinated total package. You'll absolutely love the look of the classic Chrysler steering wheel. The dash was one of the best mixes of style and info around, so we're happy to see it so well preserved. Even the AM radio is still cranking out tunes! This is a full-sized classic, and so there's plenty of room for family and friends. That's why they'll love the comfortable cloth seats. These have a terrific sense of classic style with the vintage button-top presentation. And because you'll love taking down all the windows on this pillarless hardtop, there are even provisions for factory air conditioning.
Another reason why these Chryslers were TV stars was because everyone knew they could provide big power. As you look under the hood of this one, you can tell it upholds that tradition with an honest-looking engine bay filled with big block muscle. This 383 cubic-inch V8 not only looks original, but it's believed to be original to the car. And the upgraded X-pipe dual exhaust gives this mighty motor a nice extra tone. Out on the road, good maintenance means this strong V8 moves with confident authority. Plus, with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes, this Newport knows how to provide an easy-cruising experience.
Big, imposing, and awesome-looking, this is a cool Chrysler offered for a nice price. Call today!!!
