    1970 Newport 440 - A67

    Indeed. I didn't buy the gas, and my own dad always went for the 'middle' engine, never the six or small V8, but never the big V8.

    1970 Newport 440 - A67

    One wonders if Chrysler's marketing team erred. What kid in a showroom wouldn't have steered Dad toward the model with the menacing '440' emblem on the front fender instead of the 383-2 Pa was lookin' at?

    1970 Newport 440 - A67

    Thanks for the rapid response "Old man with a hat" (I'm one of those too), I'm especially in awe of your final offer. Consider it a deal! As an adjunct to our deal, if either of us even sights or hears of one, we publish the news here. The 440 badge intrigues me. One thing I've lamented as a...

    Sorry, I've just discovered the "Search" function top right! Therefore, I'll change my question to "Any recent finds?"

    1970 Newport 440 - A67

    Hello All (Happy Thanksgiving to you all from Downunder), I couldn't find any threads on this question. In 1970, Chrysler released the "Newport 440" special edition (the A67 option) (see Daniel Bode's wonderful website 'Fuselage.de'). Does anyone know, or has anyone seen the "Front fender...

    C Body seat interchangeability.

    Appreciate that, Marko! Chrysler corp always were smart and efficient with things like this. I'll be performing the swap in a few weeks (when the weather's better here in Aus), and I'll post my findings.

    C Body seat interchangeability.

    Hello All. A quick question: Does anyone know if the bench/bucket type front seats in a '71 Fury will interchange with a '69 Newport and/or '71 Imperial seats? I need a quick fix for my sagging Fury seat, and I have the latter two vehicles awaiting their turn at restoration; so I thought I'd...

    Carburetor questions

    In general, a vacuum secondary carb is the most appropriate choice in a C-body. Nonetheless, that list 4777 Holley (650 mechanical secondary - "double pumper") can be made to work with respect to both performance and fuel economy. The manual choke can be easily reinstated with an appropriate...

    Limited slip or full spool?

    Regarding you original query re spool vs LSD, I agree with the team, go the LSD (Suregrip). The locker (which a spool is) will have no great advantages anywhere except the dragstrip or for stunt driving in a movie. However, better than both would have to be an Eaton Truetrac centre (available...

    Cam swap worth it? '68 383 newport

    Hello there from Downunder. It is well known amongst Mopar guys who spent entire weekends under the hood that the Mopar recommendations re camshaft streetability are way too conservative. The old graph of lift vs displacement seemed to recommend lifts around 0.01" too low. For your combo, as it...

    Dear old Man with a hat, I'm an old man with a hat, too; and I'm also a physician down here in Aus. Be wary of fine wood dust, it has been definitively linked to the development of nasal cancers. One of my good buddies (a Ford expert, unfortunately) actually developed just this type of cancer...

    383 to 496

    Hello Dan, I presume you're running that 383 in a '66 Fury. In that case, I agree with the car show guy; specifically, here's a recipe for a beautiful torquer for a C-body that won't break the budget, will last forever, and will look and sound stock as a rock: 383 with 4.25" stroker kit...

    tire size..

    Your build sheet will have the answer (if you have it). Otherwise, your rim sizes will limit the options if you look up the factory options. Of course, a time machine would help; if you find one (a time machine that is), I'd sure like to borrow it.

    "Newport 440" 1970

    Engine and dress up package offered in '70 (440 single exhaust, vinyl roof, light group, vinyl side mouldings, and special "440" emblem). Anyone seen (or own) one? I've wondered if the "440" emblem is borrowed from Chrysler Corp's parts inventory, or if it is a specific part. Anyone know of...

    WANTED 1969 Newport Custom Body side moldings

    Thank you, Mr Mopar! I'll chase these up. I wonder if the '69 mouldings are the same as the 70's? C-Body Bob has some 70's.

    WANTED 1969 Newport Custom Body side moldings

    Thanks, Bob. I'll take some close-ups, but it's going to be a few weeks, because the car's at my farm, but I'm in the Big Smoke for until late April. I'll post them then.

    WANTED 1969 Newport Custom Body side moldings

    Both sides, mine are full of holes due to a prior self-tapper enthusiast. In case I haven't identified the moldings correctly, I mean the ones about 2" wide that run the length of the car about midway between the sills and the bottom of the windows. If anyone has these, I 'd be prepared to pay...
