Some on here know I buy and sell mopars as a side business with my wife and son, thankfully we run across or get told about stuff every now and then. I have a wanted ad on the back of my truck, long story short a lady seen my truck the other day and called me. Her father in law had recently passed and had a big Chrysler in his garage that they needed gone so they could sell the property. Here it is 76 Newport custom 400 car, has some rust here and there but not bad, lower passenger fender is the worst. Started and drove on the trailer, but runs like crap, I assume from sitting for a few years. I will probably end up selling it after i get the title and everything finalized.

I would think the Highlander would be a fairly rare option... worth NOT parting out if the car is fixable. SMS would have the fabric almost undoubtedly, and any decent shop could sew up those covers.

Agreed...of the C body special interior cars, Navajos appear to have survived in the highest numbers...Highlanders, not so much.

Yeah I'm not going to part it, it's definitely a good car, worthy of fixing as a driver at the very least, I drove it off the trailer just a little while ago, everything works except the wipers, once I get the paperwork I'll probably list it for sale. I've got to many projects right now.

Nice ride. Let me know how much. I may need a stable mate for my 74'.
