There's just something about a classic Mopar that makes you pay attention, especially with this 1966 Chrysler Newport. It's a long and vivid hardtop made to own the road, and it's a true cruiser with a large A/C interior. But the rumble from the fuel-injected 440 V8 under the hood is also a reminder why we love Mopar muscle.
The upgrade to bright orange later in life fits this car nicely. It plays directly into the attitude that we love. After all, Chrysler coupes like this appeared in plenty of TV shows and movies as the enforcer's car because of the imposing stance the designers built into the sheetmetal. You see it in the extra wide chrome grille that immediately announces this is a full-sized machine. The extensions on the fenders look like they just want to reach out and grab you with both arms. But aggression was also nicely mixed with flair. This has a terrific style line where the trim starts next to the headlights, and it runs along the body crease as a virtually unbroken line down the entire profile - even concealing the door handles. Plus, the fender skirts mean there's another unbroken line around the rockers. And those taillights that curve outward to follow the rear fender is pure class.
The full black interior goes nicely against the orange exterior, and we especially the solid investment you can see all-around. The upholstery, headliner, door panels, dash, and more all appear deep, dark, and premium. These fresher pieces are also integrated with the best vintage elements. The dash was one of the best mixes of style and info around, so we're happy to see it so well preserved. And the center console has a cool classic style and a vacuum gauge. This is a full-sized classic, and so there's plenty of room for family and friends. That's why they'll love the comfortable upgrades like the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner and well-integrated upgrade to R134a air conditioning.
Another reason why these Chryslers were TV stars was because everyone knew they could provide big power. As you look under the hood of this one, you can tell it upholds that tradition properly. This is Mopar's mighty 440 V8 with shining valve covers and air topper. And while that's usually plenty for most of us, this has an Edelbrock intake as well as a Holley Sniper electronic fuel injection system. In fact, this modern EFI means you have a module on the center console that allows you to dial-in your ideal mix of performance. This is also supported by the right newer components, including the alternator, distributor, wires, coil, and electric fans. It fires up readily like a proper FI machine should, and the dual exhaust gives this big Chrysler an intimidating rumble. Out on the road, this strong V8 moves this coupe with authority. Plus, there's a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes with front discs, and an upgraded wheel and tire package. So this Newport knows how to provide an easy-cruising experience.
