    Phantom C bodies

    These are some of the pictures scanned from my photo album from 1981. The car has been buried in my garage since I got married in 1982 in this condition. Very little rust. The front end was painted and put back together. I will try to get it out of the garage before Summer to get current...

    Phantom C bodies

    That was already done. I had 2-1/2 cars and should have enough to complete the project. I just don't have the time, money, or skills necessary to do it right. I stripped the Newport 2-door and saved the front end and everything else that was compatible plus a lot that isn't. The original...

    Phantom C bodies

    I started one over 40 years ago, but Life got in the way. It is still in the garage buried under a lot of crap. It was a 1966 Town & Country wagon cut off into a pickup like an El Camino. Pretty much Gerald's Dream, without the fancy power plant. It needs major support underneath. I was going...

    Mathilda, Our Lovely 66 Newport, Wantonly DESTROYED by a Gen Xcrement Sociopath!

    Gerald, So sorry to hear about your loss. I probably have everything you need to fix Tilly. 66 Newport front sub frame, fairly clean right front fender, inner fenders, and hood, none of them dented. The bumper is somewhat pitted though. Unfortunately I live over 2500 miles away and the...

    Let's see some Wagons!

    I have two of these for parts. I will need to get them out of here (NJ) before the end of summer. I would hate to just send them to the junk yard if anyone needs anything.

    How difficult would this dumb idea be?

    Sway bar 1961 Newport

    Like CBODY67 says, do some measuring. I tried to put the rear axle with the sway bar from a 1972 Dodge Police Cruiser on my 1966 Chrysler years ago. Had the springs mounted and went to put it under the car, the spring mounts were almost 2 inches wider than my frame and I could not use it. I...

    Welcome Jersey Jake to FCBO!

    That was 45 years ago. I was young and impulsive. Would still like to see it done, but is way beyond my means now. Still, I would hate to see them go to the boneyard after keeping them all these years. I wanted to move the power rear window and D posts up behind the B posts and be able to...

    Sway bar 1961 Newport

    I put air shocks on my 1966 Chrysler Station Wagon and it did wonders for the handling. Totally eliminated the sway. (45 years ago)

    Welcome Jersey Jake to FCBO!

    My first car was a 1966 Chrysler Town & Country Station Wagon (with the Newport front end). My father bought it new and I bought it from him in 1974. It was totalled in 1988. I still love that car more than any other I have ever owned. Location: New Jersey It is still in my driveway rusting...
