Chrysler Newport – Third Gen. (1961-1964)

August 8th, 2009 by Rolph · No Comments

Some cars just speak to you, and this is one of those cars. Normally, the big American boats mainly look kinda ridiculous in my eyes, but this Newport is nice. Obviously it is the small car in the Chrysler range of the time… that explains something. It is always amazing to see the specs on old US cars of the era, enormous V8 engines which generated a very poor power output for its size. Oh well, they are nice to look at

What I wouldn’t give to see a first generation Chrysler Newport two-seater roadster! Obviously it doesn’t help that there are like six of them ever made. Pic from Flickr:
