It's a '67 Newport base.Ahah right Commando!
I explain you the situation: I've owned 40 different cars in last years, my pleasure is not to own a car, but to buy it, and sell it, I know that's strange and a bit ridiculous, but I do my cash with that and I can afford a greater model each time
Some years ago (when I had my '80 Mercury Monarch, my first old car) I was never thinking to have an awesome and old big Chrysler like my 300, and even less two (with my Imperial)!
But with this little business now I has 2 great old cars, maybe I'll keep them, maybe not, but the 300 has a great advantage at my eyes: I'm connected to this car since I work on it, I invest time on it, maybe it'll be super clean one day, the work has already begun so why not
This project is not so scary (I don't have any equipment and place but I work in car body), all I need is time, and I don't have time
Little question for you Commando, is the blue 2-dr Newport (or 300?)?
Really nice color and configuration (I'd like to have a 2-dr ), can you tell me more about your wheels? (and why not post some pics?)
I want to put this style of wheels on my 300, is this oem wheels with only little dog-dishes caps or larger sport wheels?
To each their own but that 300 looks exactly the way it should with those beautiful full wheel covers. Your car needs the white walls and whitewalls with small hubcaps is a no no. My .02.
It's a '67 Newport base.
The wheels are the original 14 x 6 steelies.
The tires are Hankook 225/70 Optimos
The dog dish hubcaps are correct '67 Chrysler.
If my car was your model, I'd put on WW's and the 67 deluxe wheel covers.

Thanks for the update!
So...last time you posted you were only 18??
Based on the pics so far the 300 is a straight car,shiny too.
love the black/gold combo.
I recommend decoding the fender tag and or locate the build sheet.
Something tells me she was a factory vinyl top car but I could be wrong.
The bench seat was a no-cost option,BTW,so there is a cahnce this 300 was an ordered car when new.
All 300's came with bucket seats and center buddy/arm rest--even the 4 door cars.
Cars like your 300 are getting the recognition they deserve,and their values are reflecting that.
Keep up the good work and try to hang on to her and enjoy!
