1962 Chrysler Newport Convertible

1962 Chrysler Newport Convertible

Wrapping a historic Golden Lion drivetrain in a tailored interior and all but 18 feet of stylish sheetmetal, this incredible Chrysler, HAS to be one of the coolest classics on the planet! In fact, featuring an optimal mix of performance and opulent luxury, with Jetson-like pushbutton technology, this baby will scream you have arrived, and that's just with the top up!

For consignment this ultra-cool early 60's automobile, likes to pretend you are truly the belle of the ball upon your arrival. This pristine Newport could be called “in process” as there are finished to a “T” aspect from an older restoration, and then there are areas of unfinished business. Allow me to explain.

Exterior
A Sapphire Blue Poly repaint nicely done is in very nice condition. Correct chrome bumpers, badging, and exterior brite work looks good with no pitting or dents. Canted dual headlights reach out from the front fenders. Wire wheels wrapped by wide white sidewalls all around reside within clean restored tubs. Underside presents with surface rust, and drivers side seat tub has been repaired. The top is clean, fully operational, and shows no wear.

Interior
Blue vinyl covers the seats and appears to be original. There is some ripping and staining seen on the front and rear benches. Blue carpeting in good condition covers the floors. A space age dash is truly the highlight of this car, with a stitched padded vinyl boomerang style top, and blue metal bottom. Fronting of the driver and crowned steering wheel is an awesome domed gauge housing that is backed by a corresponding semicircular speedometer. Also, in true space age style, automatic transmission, heating and airflow, and radio are controlled by the push of a button. Other knobs are surrounded by crownlike bezels in a metal field, which drips early 1960's design.

Drivetrain
The 361ci V8 has undergone some work on the carburetor, which has been completely rebuilt. The push button 3-speed automatic, shifts smoothly, and with the push of a button! Also seen underneath are new fuel lines, and a consigner stated fuel tank that was flushed. Power steering and power brakes are also noted.

Literally ready to drive away, and can do so smoothly, with a quick start. Electronic convertible top working, and overall in good condition. If you want perfection, the seats are the only frown this writer would give to this car. Other than that, the only other thing it needs is a home!
