Looking for Chrysler Newport here in Los Angeles? California Classic Car Rental is here to offer you the best Chrysler Newport.
Chrysler’s 1965 restyle added some bold cues to their entry –level Newport, and showed that the company had figured out how to design big cars to scale. The Newport had a bold, sculptured side panel with a chrome accent strip both above and below it. The grille and headlights were recessed, as were the taillights. The base engine was now a 270-hp, 383-cid V-8. Newports could also be ordered with a 315-hp, 383-cid engine, and either powerplant could be equipped with the standard manual three-speed transmission, a four-speed manual, or the 727 automatic.
The Newport lineup included a four-door sedan, a glassier town sedan, two-and four-door hardtops, a convertible, and six- and nine-passenger Town & Country stations wagons. Prices ranged from $3,000 to $3,600. The public responded favorably to the redesign and Chrysler sales boomed. The Newport line represented 55 percent of Chrysler’s 200,000 sales.
For 1966, a few changes were made to the grille, and fender skirts were standardized. The optional 383-cid engine increased to 325 hp, and a new 365-hp, 440-cid V-8 could be added to the Newport for $335 and it could only be paired with the automatic transmission. The four-speed was also dropped. In 1967, Chrysler Newport sales dipped slightly as the country weathered a slight recession. Newports were significantly redesigned, with scalloped side panels with bright trim above and below, and a more formal roofline with wider C-pillars. The town sedan was dropped and a Newport Custom line was introduced, which added upgraded upholstery, armrests, and some exterior trim.
