Hello All,
My wife and I are new to the c body family. Her Uncle that is 92 just gifted us a 1970 Chrysler Newport 2 door hardtop, with only 118k miles. This car is almost all original! We have the build sheet, owners manual service records, the whole bit. It has had an MSD ignition upgrade and exhaust upgrade. The car was loaded from the factory, 440 TNT, Torqeflite transmission, 8 track, cast center road wheels, the list goes on and on. I really can’t tell you how blessed we feel to be trusted with this piece of automotive history.

I am looking for a few parts that have been misplaced or have just worn out over the years. I am hoping that I have found a source to point me in a direction to find parts on my list.

Things that I’m looking for are , passenger door kick plate, quarter window seals. I am sure the list will grow.

Take care!
LitMike

@LitMike Howdy and welcome from Colorado!

Glad you joined! There is a wealth of information here and the parts you seek are here, somewhere.

You have mentioned that the car has a 440 and being a 70 newport I have not seen that yet. I'm very curious about the car. And I'm sure we all would like to talk about your car and it's loaded options.
Any chance you could post the trim tag on this car for us to look at?
Otherwise, I'm going to ask a lot of questions, like, what color is the exterior? What color is the interior? What are the options? What was the AC system? Did it have............

By "kick plate", are you referring to these? Or the plastic panels below the dash?

Here are some photos. The one of the car is from 03. But you can get the idea. I also included the trim tag.

V1L would be a champagne vinyl roof. I wonder what that color looks like compared to the white vinyl roof.
