    Check out my 1970 Chrysler Newport Cordoba 2door, 383cu auto, 70k actual miles.
    Its an original Colorado car, that I found, rescued and got running again....

    Its a pretty decent car, runs and drives great, has had one respray and the Aztec top has been replaced with plain vinyl.
    I had to do a new fuel system, full tune-up, new radiator, belts, hoses, etc., and it purrs like a kitten now.
    One of 1868 2 door Newport Cordoba produced, has correct color matched wheels and hubcaps, and all the cool Aztec emblems too.
    Almost rust free, however the passenger rear lower quarter panel is rusted badly because previous owner left a bag of traction salt in the trunk and it fell down into the 1/4 panel gap for years and rusted it away. Too bad, but otherwise a solid car.
    I've had it a couple years and thought I'd share it with you guys...

    Very Nice! Forgive me here though, what makes a Cordoba? I assume it's an upgrade trim level but what does it include?

    Sheet steal, welder and a good body man to hammer it into shape to make it all work.

    Or, a decent parts car, but unfortunately the parts car wold have to be in too good a shape to be a parts car. At that point you'd end up with two very nice Chrysler's and the never ending hunt for the perfect parts car for your parts car.

    A high quality body shop or restoration shop should be able to fabricate a panel and weld it in so that no one would ever know by looking at it. Another option would be to buy a lower section of a quarter from a rust free car, remove the outer skin section and use that. There should be several salvage yards in Colorado to help with that.
    Beautiful car, and best of luck.

    and trunk drop downs also. it's all fabrication. yours isn't too bad. quarters on my '69 were rotted up to the body line from the door jambs back, both sides. the wheel tubs were rotten. trunk was rotten. frame was rotten... yeah, Chrysler.
