    70 Newport sedan long gone

    Yes that’s the label. It was either in a rear door window or the back window. I mean, hey…I haven’t seen the car since 1987…

    70 Newport sedan long gone

    Would seem to me that would have been a rare factory combo, plain Jane Newport with a 440. I suspect the majority were 383’s w/2bbl, like mine. I actually had to dig around to do a search to find that ad. Somewhat obscure.

    70 Newport sedan long gone

    We gave $700 for the car in summer 1983. My dad even had it re-painted for me. You look back with gratitude on the things your folks did for you. As an adult, I appreciate that meant time he spent working, earning a paycheck to pay for it.

    70 Newport sedan long gone

    No, unfortunately no pics that I remember. BUT I remember it had an AirTemp(?) sticker on the window. I found one online that looked exactly like the one I owned, except the one in this old ad had a 440. For Sale: 1970 Chrysler Newport in Ortonville, Michigan

    70 Newport sedan long gone

    I had a ‘70 Newport sedan in college. Light Blue. 383 2bbl. Tonight I found the insurance card for it. I have the VIN and thought I’d post it. I don’t think it survived the crusher into the 1990’s. I saw it parked at a gas station along the Ohio River near St. Mary’s, WV around 1989. Here’s...

    UNBREADED! '71 Monaco Wagon

    I like your car, it’s a great color and style. The aftermarket wheels and raised letter tires are perfect. And Mopar road wheels are perfect too. You can’t go wrong.

    UNBREADED! '71 Monaco Wagon

    3M makes a rubber wheel you use with an electric drill, works great. It’s like a giant pencil eraser of hard rubber. Takes about two of those wheels to do a fusie Monaco wagon.

    So I bought this one today.

    Trying to think of a scenario where the drivers side would see more salt than the passenger side. Maybe if it was parked on the street for extended periods and salt trucks threw salt on that (exposed) side? ‍You do have to wonder.

    You might want to put a light clear coat over the metal of the undercarriage if you run it in snowy season and road salt is an issue.

    73 Monaco wagon

    That’s what I thought I remembered someone posting. I checked heights on the two they looked the same. Sticking with quality!

    73 Monaco wagon

    Where does the wear occur? Ends? The one I took out is on the right, in the photo. The replacement I decided not to put in is on the left. It doesn’t look nearly as good.

    73 Monaco wagon

    Today I took the fuel pump off to check the pump rod. I think it looks ok. I actually like the looks of the one I took out better than the one I got as a spare. I don’t see any height difference. So I put it back in. How many miles do these typically last before needing replacement?

    Beautifully done, the woodgrain makes me smile. It’s inspiring to see another one on the road in this world. There is more than one unicorn!!! I wish the Atlantic Ocean was no obstacle for driving. Maybe have an international C-Bodies “Mopar Atlantic Meetup” in Greenland, or the Azores! (Just...

    (I assume the 440 is *burning* oil)

    1973 tc

    I had an ‘84 BMW 318i that leaked oil. I went to a thicker viscosity oil to “stop” the leak. It was hard to start in winter! I don’t know if that kind of “cheating” would work in a Mopar engine or not. It all depends on what’s wrong. Here in the US different companies sell different products...
