    seat belt retainers

    Did our beautiful Slab Sides have anything to keep the rear seat belts from sliding down into the crack between the rear seat back and seat bottom when new? Or was it just such a tight fit that they wouldn't slip down and get lost in "Narnia?" Perhaps my rear seat bottom has too big a gap . . .

    Need video of 65–66 2-door hardtop quarter window operation

    Hey friends, I’m hoping somebody out there with a 65 or 66 two-door hardtop can post a video on YouTube (or similar) showing how their manual rear quarter windows go up and down. Looking to get mine working just right, but I have questions about the way they are supposed to operate. They do some...

    Can you easliy put 1968 chyrsler 300 hideaway healights on a 67 chrysler 300?

    I feel like I've seen this done once before. I'm guessing (just a guess) that if you have all of the '68 parts on hand, it should just be a matter of removing the original stuff and bolting on the newer stuff. My guesses have been wrong before though, so take it with a grain of salt. I'd wait...

    '65 300L question please - What does this look like?

    I wanted to do this on my 66 Newport but I couldn’t see how to do it without destroying the emblem in the process.

    Would these wheels fit?

    I missed out on a set of police wheels for $350 last summer . . . really regretting it now.

    Hp manifolds or TTI headers

    The TTI website provides the part numbers for the lo-po and hi-po manifolds on the page where you figure out what kit you want to order. They ask which manifolds you have and provide part numbers, so you could reverse engineer those into eBay, Craigslist or similar to come up with the ones you...

    so you are thinking of a more modern style of headliner?

    67 Newport

    Tacoma is quite “hilley” actually, as it is a port town and right on the Puget Sound. It doesn’t really flatten out to you get inland a mile or two, but that’s neither here nor there. I bought my FIRST 66 Newport in Tacoma when I was a young man growing up in Puyallup.

    Would these wheels fit?

    I didn't see the 3 nubs on the rallye's that you need for the 9" poverty caps, but perhaps I was looking at the wrong wheel!

    Would these wheels fit?

    $175 each is way too much. Especially for a repop. I found a set of 4 cop wheels last summer for $350 but I didn't have cash on hand. What a deal that was and I missed it!

    Would these wheels fit?

    I can’t find either size at the moment.

    Would these wheels fit?

    I’m looking to keep my “rare” 66 poverty caps, the Rallyes are out. Thanks though!

    Would these wheels fit?

    Yeah, that’s an old price. Plus they aren’t available anywhere. Still searching for cop wheels.

    Would these wheels fit?

    On my 66 Newport (provided I can even get them)?

    65-68 Chrysler Grille Styling - comments and questions

    When viewed from straight on, the ‘66 Newport front end has some blockiness I don’t care for, but when viewed normally, ie not squatting it looks amazing. It’s my preference as well, although I admit the 68 is a close second.

    65-68 Chrysler Grille Styling - comments and questions

    Yes, the '66 does that as well. It's one of my favorite features of the '66 because the taillights do the same, and if you look at the car from directly above, the front and back are basically mirror images of each other.

    65-68 Chrysler Grille Styling - comments and questions

    So I'm just kind of nerding out a little bit, looking at the evolution of the 65-68 Chrysler Grille style elements. Thought I'd post what I notice, and would love to hear your thoughts and comments as well. 65 - retains the trapezoidal shape in the center section, as seen on the '64 Newport...
