Chrysler completely redesigned its Newport model for 1969 with what they termed “Fuselage Styling” that would the company’s full size trademark through model year 1973. Built on the same 124 inch wheelbase chassis used in the previous generation, this latest Newport was longer, lower, wider, and several hundred pounds heavier.
The Green over Green cloth example presented here is ’73 Two-Door Hardtop “roller” (i.e. no engine provided) where it appears that after spending a claimed $12,000 paint job on a rust free body, high performance suspension upgrades that include ladder bars, and a “built” Torque-Flite automatic transmission and driveshaft. The seller states all the buyer needs to do is drop a motor in it and go.
In addition to the brand new exterior paint, the interior features what appears to be a flawless original cloth interior equipped with a bench seat. With the right crate motor, this car will make a perfect, albeit very large, street sleeper. The only decision the next caretaker needs to make is what would be the correct crate motor to put in this car?
