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.
