1967 CHRYSLER NEWPORT CUSTOM 2DR. FAST TOP
383 4bbl. V8 engine
727 torqueflite automatic transmission
Black bucket seat interior with buddy seat...left one is power...right one reclines
Factory am radio with rear speaker and reverberator (echo chamber sound!)
Factory vacuum operated trunk release
Factory cruise control (not currently working)
Factory air conditioning....works good!
Factory automatic headlight dimmer
Power steering, power drum brakes
Car is in good, driver condition. Used to have a black vinyl top, but it was shredded from the sun, so it was removed and roof was painted. Most of the paint on the car is original...only the front fender extensions and part of the left front fender are NOT original paint. Car is a very solid, no rot , dry climate car that has spent it's life in dry Montana and Wyoming. Only rust that I see is slight bubbling on left quarter panel above the fender skirt. Also has rust in trunk floor on right side in the area of one of the plastic plugs. Trunk floor is very good except for that one area and some surface rust. Frame rails, lower quarters, floors, etc. are excellent!
Interior is presentable, and nice for the age. Door panels, dash pad, headliner, etc. are excellent. Rear seat cushion has one split seam, and right seat has a split seam on backrest and a couple of other small flaws. Also, there is something wrong with the reclining mechanism of the right seat, so it leans back a little bit more than it should.
Engine seems fine...I have only driven the car around 500 miles in 4 years, so it never gets the cobwebs blown out of it...that is the main reason that I am selling..just no time to enjoy it and no inside storage for it. It is too good of a car to let sit and go to waste!
Transmission works fine
Car drives good ...probably as good as it did in 1967
Air Cond. works...heater is bypassed so I assume that it needs a new heater core
Factory cruise does not work
Car stops, but is making a scraping sound in rear...I installed rebuilt master cylinder and brake booster. I have new brake hoses, and brake shoes that go with the car.
Has aftermarket chrome wire basket style 15 inch wheels....including spare. I believe that these were installed early in the cars life. I have the wire baskets, but they need a good cleaning...I left them off as I don't like the looks of them.
Tires are old, but have good tread...no cracks yet that I see, but I would recommend replacing them.
If you have any questions about the car....please feel free to ask BEFORE bidding! Car is being sold as is with no warranty. I would recommend trailering it, but I have driven it on 20-30 mile runs with no issues, but have never been on a long trip with it.

Behind the vanguard of numerous Jeep models, two Chryslers, a smattering of Fiats and Alfa Romeos and local production through a joint venture with Guangzhou Automotive Group (GAG), Fiat Chrysler wants to increase sales in China more than six-fold by 2018. The group sold 130,000 cars in China in 2013, the aim for 2018 being 850,000 cars.

Ultimately it's expected that the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Cherokee, Wrangler, Renegade, the coming Grand Wagoneer and a sub-Renegade-sized crossover will either be built in or exported to the People's Republic. The Chrysler Town & Country and 300 will join the export list in 2016 and 2018 respectively, according to a report in Automotive News.
With a number of those vehicles not in production or perhaps even envisaged yet, and others not due on the local market until 2018, it will be interesting to see how Fiat Chrysler plans to achieve the target in the specified timeframe. The joint venture with GAG builds two products now, the Dodge Dart-based Fiat Viaggio launched two years ago - supposedly designed just for China - and the just-launched Fiat Ottimo, a hatchback version of the Viaggio. Fiat projected 300,000 Viagio sales in its first two years, that number has been adjusted downward to 94,000 and there doesn't appear to be an analyst alive that sees a good future for Fiat in China's overrun mainstream market. Still, last year's 130,000 group sales in China is a huge jump from 2012 sales of 66,000 units, but less than half the 300,000 units it projected.
Chrysler launched its America's Import campaign with a splashy ad during the Super Bowl starring Bob Dylan and featuring a whole bunch of patriotic imagery that included Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, factory employees and, of course, the city of Detroit. Since then, the brand has followed the original spot with even more ads using the same tagline. Not everyone is pleased, it seems, including The Detroit Free Press auto critic Mark Phelan, who's fed up with the marketing. In an editorial for the newspaper, Phelan claims that it's insulting to the US auto industry and its workers.

"The phrase 'America's import,' with its suggestion that 'import' equals 'better,' feels terribly dated, a relic of the 1980s. It's the rhetorical equivalent of hanging a pastel-hued 'Miami Vice' poster on your office wall," writes Phelan in the piece. Also, since some of the brand's cars are made in Canada, the line isn't even entirely true, he claims. Phelan goes on to praise the company's earlier Imported from Detroit commercials for getting the right message across and showing pride in the city.
While "America's Import" might be the tagline for Chrysler's ads, it's not the whole message. Subsequent ads keep the hard-working, patriotic imagery from the original Super Bowl spot but put a bigger emphasis on the Chrysler 200 that the commercials are meant to sell.
A pair of cyber security experts have awarded the ignominious title of most hackable vehicles on American roads to the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, 2014 Infiniti Q50 and 2015 Cadillac Escalade.
Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek are set to release a report at the Black Hat hacking conference in Las Vegas, Automotive News reports. The two men found the Jeep, Caddy and Q50 were easiest to hack based not on actual tests with the vehicles, but a detailed analysis of systems like Bluetooth and wireless internet access - basically, anything that'd allow a hacker to remotely gain access to the vehicle's systems.
Considering this lack of hands-on testing, the pair acknowledge that "most hackable" could be a relative term - they point out that the vehicles may actually be quite secure.
