1970 Chrysler Newport

For 1970, the Newport received a new grille and the rear deck panel was also re-styled. It had a concave 'cove' treatment with oblong tail lamps banded in chrome. A plethora of bodystyles were available including convertibles, sedan, and coupes. Standard equipment on the Newport included cleaner air system, 59-amp battery, silenced air cleaner, cloth and vinyl bench seats (though the convertibles were done in vinyl), rear seat ashtrays, heel covers, and carpeting. A Cordoba special edition model was available and came with gold exterior finish, gold vinyl roof, special vinyl interior, and Cordoba wheel covers. They also had dual horns, vent-less side glass, pedal dress-up package, special wheel covers and a trip odometer.

The Newport 440 option added the 440 cubic-inch New Yorker engine and came with vinyl side body moldings, vinyl roof light group and TorqueFlite automatic transmission.

The Newport Custom Series was available as a sedan, hardtop sedan, or hardtop coupe. This series added an upgraded level of trim and roof pillar script. They had pull-down center front armrests, carpeted lower door trim panels, padded seat cushions, upgraded interior upholstery materials, and bright upper door moldings.

This 1970 Chrysler Newport Convertible is powered by the high-output 383 cubic-inch, 290 horsepower V8 engine mated to a TorqueFlite automatic transmission. There are power brakes, power steering, power top, 40/20/40 split bucket seats, cruise control, AM/FM 8-track stereo, Factory air conditioning, and power trunk release.

1970 was the last year Chrysler offered a full-size convertible and the final year of the 'fuselage' body style. This example is one of just 1,124 produced.

In 2012, this car was offered for sale at the Glenmoor Gathering presented by Classic Motorcar Auctions. The car was offered without reserve and sold for $13,500 including buyer's premium.
