1972 Chrysler Newport Royal
Why This Vehicle is Special:
When do you see a car, any car like the 1972 Chrysler Newport we have for sale at Skyway Classics, that only has 28,175 original miles, and that looks almost just like it did when it left the showroom back in 1972?
The Newport base engine was the new corporate 400 that it replaced the 383 in our Newport compensating for lower compression ratios and it still runs on regular gas. The 400 cu in (6.6 L) V8 has 225 hp, a 2-barrell carb, and sits in an all original looking engine compartment with exhaust flowing out the rear dual exhausts.
All options you could want are on the Newport like power steering, brakes, air, and more. It rolls down the road on factory wire wheel hubcaps and whitewall tires. It also has a stock appearing detailed trunk with factory mat and full size spare tire and jack.
For the 1972 model year all of the corporate C-bodies were restyled, with new sheet metal and rooflines. The Newport coupes gained a higher beltline, giving the cars a more tank-like profile; the “loop” bumper had an eerie similarity to the 1971 Barracuda. Tail lamps were made vertical and cut into the bumper.
Ours has a great dark brown paint job with a tan vinyl top and displays great body line, crisp looking chrome and emblems and great glass, rubber, trim, and has a great classic style.
The all tan vinyl pattern bench seat with fold down console, matching dash, door panels, rear bench seat, and headliner has dark brown carpet and appears just like it did from the factory like everything else on our Newport.
This 1972 Chrysler Newport we have at Skyway Classics is as much of a time capsule of a car that you will ever find. It brings back the look and feel of the big car 70's era that a lot of you will remember. Do not pass up the chance to experience this type of car again.
