    Hey Bjorn, are those wheels original, or Mopar? I really like them.

      They are American Racing Ar61 - Outlaw Wheels 15x7. Had them on a '70 Charger in the past and I like the look. 225/70-15 tires which balances the size of the car nicely IMO, compared to the original 14's.

      Btw, your Newport looks pretty slick as well

    Wow, that is a sharp car. "Fast Top" you say, I've never heard that expression. So is my '67 Newport a Fast Top?

      Thanks, Yes all 67-68 c-body's with the forward slanted c-pillar are officially called Fast Tops

      The first two numbers on the VIN should tell the body style, I believe.

    Love it, nice touch on the wheels, very different. Beautiful color combo. All '68 2 door Chryslers are Fast tops, Newports, Newport Customs, 300's, and New Yorkers.

    You may want to consider some 2014 Mustang wheels like on mine. I picked up a set of 17" X 8" for less than $200.

    VERY sharp - blue w/white top especially nice, especially on sunny days. Not normally a fan of non-stock wheels, but these seem to work fine to me, almost like the Road wheel that came a couple years later. Magnums are always nice, especially on a 300, and you could just as easily use 15" as you could 14"

    That is Very nice! Body looks straight and solid. Head light doors are perfect! Magnum 500's would really set it right.

      Thanks, I'm thinking by next Summer the Magnum 500's will be in place

      When I bought mine it had cragars, didnt look right. 1968 you could get magnums as option, thats I went with.

      Still debating if I should go with the original 14's vs 15's though. Since I have the 15's on now maybe I'll go with the stock 14 M500's to be completely original

    I love your car, and I love fast tops. Is this really a fast top? I didn't think that was an option on this car. I'm probably wrong.

      As I understand it, the 2 doors with the forward slanted roof line was the Fast Top (1967 & 1968 Mopars). The other 2 door hardtops didn't have a specific name attached
