Chrysler Newport 4D pillarless hardtop 1961
One of the last sleek & classy tailfin cars.
The Chrysler Newport was introduced as a way to increase sales and bring Chrysler vehicles to a new segment of the automotive community. The Newport name, formerly applied to a hardtop body style, was re-introduced and applied to this new series. Body styles included a sedan, convertible, hardtop coupe, hardtop sedan, and a 6- and 9-passenger station wagon..this is the rare 4 door pillarless hardtop!
The Newport rested on the previous year’s Windsor wheelbase. In the front were a fine horizontal bar setup, a straight bumper, and slanted headlamps. In the back, the tail-lamps were relocated into the deck lid latch panel and the tailfins ended in chromed inserts with small back-up lights.
This vehicle has been totally restored and all mechanics also rebuilt, I have some photos of the restoration process.
Power was provided from a 361 CID V8 overhead valve engine that offered 265 horsepower.
This Chrysler Newport 4D pillarless hardtop is in Finland and can be shipped worldwide!
Please know that I will help you in every way possible with the purchase. I have good contacts for shipping the vehicle all over the world. If you would like to come and view the vehicle before purchasing that would be great but if it isn’t possible to come and view I will do my best to give you as much information and as many photos as you require. I myself buy a lot from foreign countries so I know exactly the situation you are in.
