The 1967 Chrysler Newport had a major redesign with a fresh grille, new tail treatment and deck lid, and side panels that had a slightly raised kickout covering the rear wheel. 2,891 units of the 1967 Chrysler Newport convertibles were built and this featured classic is one that has spent most of its life in Middle Tennessee since it was first bought.
The 1967 Newport’s was a full-size cruiser with plenty of 60s styles. They are a lot more common than their cousins, the New Yorkers and the more expensive 300, which means that they are still relatively to find these days. Repairing or restoring one is also fairly easy as spare parts from the same time are readily available and some junk cars are ready to donate some of their body panels.
According to a private seller’s ad, this car’s body is still intact and comes with the 383 cid V8 engine which has been recently rebuilt and now “runs like a top.”
“The interior is in very good condition and was restored using the original pattern… the top is solid and the motor to raise/lower it works well and the top will keep you dry should the need arise,” the seller added.
The 383 cid V8 is matched with an automatic transmission. It also comes with power steering and power brakes. Its AM/FM radio has been complimented with an audio system that is capable of Bluetooth which has been beautifully hidden under the glove box to preserve its interior classic look.
The asking price for this 1967 Chrysler Newport convertible is $17,000 or to the best offer. The seller noted that it was based on Hagerty Price Guide’s price for a similar model in this condition. You can check this link for to see the different prices of the Chrysler Newport.
The photos clearly show the Newport’s well-maintained condition with its beautiful blue finish. Although the seller admits that it has some minor defects here and there that will need to be attended to in the future, it is still a drive ready classic cruise.
“Paint only needs some minor touch ups and two small crack repairs,” the seller added. “Some future projects: New float for the gas tank (gas gauge does not work). A new blower motor for heat and air. Brakes are touchy and will stop you on a dime, but the calipers may need replacing down the road. In the future; a new wiring harness in the dash, but necessary electrical components (wiper, headlights, directionals, hazard lights) work well. Needs a headlight switch. Carpeting is looking older, though in good shape. The boot has a tear in the seam and is missing one snap.”
