    Not mine. This "blue sky" four-door was first listed for sale a few weeks back at $12.5k; the asking price is now down to $11.5k.

    Must be a Royal, since it has the plain front bench interior (it must originally have been an A1B8 cloth/vinyl interior, as there was no blue all-vinyl interior in 1972 Newports).

    The paint and chrome do look shiny, and the interior does seems in good condition (though the blue seats have been reupholstered). Still, that is a lot of money for a plain-Jane 4-door sedan.

    That floral pattern on the seats is enough to make my eyes bleed.

    Yep, the thin side trim give it away as a Royal.

    Ugh! That seat fabric! But sure is one clean car, outside the engine compartment. Powder coating the air cleaner would do a world of good!

    Must have been repainted at least once and had a new vinyl roof?

    Those 400s sure weren't as smooth and powerful as the 383s were. Alas, smog detuning had started in 1972

    Sure would like to know where to get those over-the-transmission-hump floor mats. Haven't been able to find any.

    Looks like a nice car, for what it is. Wonder what's under those seat covers?

    Aftermarket lh outside mirror, trailer hitch, and fender skirts. The 400 is a big plus as Royals had the 360 2bbl as standard.

    Hope it finds a good home!

    Come on Dave, it's 69 Mod Top all over again!:lol:. That interior is quite interesting though. Wonder if it's original, highly doubt it. Don't believe these cars came with it.

    The lower part of the Body Panels has some very sloppy "improvements "IMHO. Another one I have serious doubts about the mileage.

    Yes, especially in the first picture the left front fender looks like it was sculptured with filler.

    In 1972 the 360 was no longer the base engine on any Newport. The 400 was the stock engine.

    Just checked the "1972 Chrysler Advance Information" at www.Hamtramck-Historical.com. 360 2bbl is listed as standard on the Newport Royal models. 400 2bbl listed as standard on the Newport Custom and Town & Country models, but optional on Newport Royal models.

    @Henrius and @CBODY67: Interestingly, the two information sets disagree:

    The 400 is standard on the Royal, according to the sales brochure -- courtesy of Fuselage.de
    The 360 is standard according to the Salesman's Pocket Guide -- courtesy of the Hamtramck Registry.

    We all know that "specifications are subject to change, without notice" (from the very fine print in brochures and such), but I am a bit skeptical about the source of the brochures which the "off-shore" websites post on their websites. I mean no negative thoughts about these very good websites, but as they are not USA in nature, knowing that sometimes the export models had different specs than USA models (even the Canadian models!), I might wonder if the brochures posted were actually brochures for the export vehicles or are of USA origin, English language, for North American built vehicles. The reason I say that is that over the years, I've seen some items in those posted brochures which did not exactly align with what I knew to be accurate for USA-built vehicles. Just my observations, no more, no less.

    We also know that sales brochures are, of necessity, printed well before the cars actually go into production, so they can be in the dealerships ready for the eager buying public to have at show date. Everything is generally pretty accurate, but have the fine-print disclaimer (above) near the back page of the brochure. This can account for any last minute changes which might be dictated by various corporate entities to the vehicle's standard or optional content.

    The "Advance Information" is usually pretty accurate, being that it can be printed after the cars go into production, but in time to be mailed to the dealers. Still, that CAN be changed with later Letters to the dealers. As can the Dealer Order Guides' information.

    Considering the some of the drivability issues which a '71 Newport Royal 360 had (which happened to live across the side street to the Exxon station I partronized), which the owner/tech at the station went through the carb with a fine-toothed comb and then tweaked a bit to get it to run right, it would not surprise me if most of the '72 Royals had the optional 400 2bbl in them. All things considered.

    Again, I mean no ill intent to our European associates in what they have on their websites or the source of their information. I thank them for doing what they do. From my own experiences I the car business (parts), you look at EVERYTHING and then decide what might be more accurate to your own orientations. Because we all know that while a lot can be "the same", things can and do change during the particular model year. Whether formally or via possible parts shortages or "suggestions" from reginal sales reps or preferences of the selling dealer themselves.

    Just some thoughts and observations,
