This 1971 Chrysler Newport Is A Giant Family Sedan From Days Gone By
In the 1970s the Big Three made design changes to their family sedan lineups that put the BIG in big cars. These cars were available with both big and small American V8s and became the cruisers of lore that ate up miles of Interstate back and forth across this great nation. This 1971 Chrysler Newport, that our friend Rocco told us about, is one such beast and this one looks ready to eat up miles on a summer road trip. With 383 cubic inches and a 727 I’m pretty sure this thing has a rearend gear that will cruise at 80 mph all day long. And with bench seats both front and rear, 6 adults can actually fit in this thing better than most suvs on the market.
One of my favorite things on these big Chryslers is the grille, which is surrounded by a giant chrome bumper that looks ready to eat anything in its path. Plus these cars are so long that they look low and cool even at stock height but with a little altitude adjustment I’m sure this sucker would look even meaner.
My daughter is going away to college and we don’t need this car anymore. We had all the belts, hoses, new carb, spark plugs, wires, and shocks replaced. Has a 383 motor, the odometer shows around 55k
