Although the name had been used for trim designations in the past, the Chrysler Newport was first introduced as its own thing for the 1961 model year. The Newport was the least expensive Chrysler available at the showrooms with a base price of $2964 and was a mélange of small hubcaps and minimal chrome, but it looks gaudy in 2022. Find this 1968 Chrysler Newport Convertible offered for $10,500 in Glenmont, NY via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
