This is a really authentic, fantastic condition Chrysler Newport 4 door sedan. The car is very original in all aspects of presentation and is a rare and wonderful find. Although not necessarily considered a "collectable" by purist standards, its sheer condition makes her so.

This is a genuine 3 owner car that spent its whole life in Illinois and showing a very low 43,000 miles. I do not know whether this is true mileage but I do know the car has been part of a private collection for more than 25 years. She certainly looks every bit of a 43,000 mile example.

Finished in Beige Mist metallic ("code YY1") it comes with a very cool gold brocade cloth interior.

This Chrysler has been recently gone over by a local work-shop and everything is in good operating condition. The car recently underwent a tune-up and service. This was done by the archaeologists who discovered her in the private collection. As a result, the engine runs smooth and powerful. Brakes are good and the car stops sure. All features and functions work well.

The paint on the car was redone about 8 years ago and is absolutely spectacular. A very high-end job, it is slightly heavier in metallic than factory but is stunning. All the inside edges are original paint and in very clean condition (look at photos of the underside of the hood and trunk - quite amazing!). The previous owner indicated, prior to the repaint, it only had minor fading and it was only his pursuit for perfection that led him to the repaint. The body is entirely rust free as is the underside. Under the hood has NOT been restored in any way and presents in original factory condition. The whole car is very straight, accident free and has never had any body repair. It is very shiny, consistent and simply looks great from afar and under close inspection.

All rubber, glass and trim fixtures are in wonderful condition without any signs of fading, marks or scratches. The hubcaps are without any scuffs or rashes and look perfect. The bumpers and wheel arch mouldings are virtually prefect.

The interior is absolutely fantastic! Finished in gold vinyl and brocade fabric on the seats, she looks incredibly sharp. The dash pad is perfect without any sun-fading or cracking. All the vinyl, fabric and carpets are great. The dash cluster is clean and straight. The steering wheel is without a single crack. The vinyl and fabric seats are in simply amazing presentation and condition, totally clean and tidy. The seats are not only without any tears, cracks, fading or marks but there is not even a loose thread in the fabric! The interior condition is surely the best testament for a low mileage example. Door panels, handles, switches, knobs and every little item is excellent. The headliner is good. The interior is without doubt a 9.5 out of 10. Just stunning.

The car all round is very original in all respects. Sporting original hubcaps on original rims with factory jack..
