In Torque We Trust: 1966 Chrysler Newport Coupe

About eight years ago, I was driving down the Merritt Parkway in my BMW E30 with my then girlfriend.  We got passed by late model VW wagon full of kids.  I noticed a Big Lebowski Abide sticker on his back bumper and to the dismay of my girl sped up to give him a crazy eyed thumbs up. The look on the drivers face was priceless and he returned a thumbs up back with enthusiasm.  Today's victim has about twenty stickers scattered about the car's sheet metal.  Find this 1966 Chrysler Newport Coupe for sale in Statford, CT for $8,500 via craigslist. 

The seller gives a ton of information about 383 V8 powered coupe.  High performance modification's to the car include:  Hurst shift kit, Holley 750 cfm four barrel, Edelbrock dual plane manifold, K&N air filter, long tube headers, dual 3" exhausts, Flowmaster 40 series mufflers, high performance coil, and Frostbite radiator.  The engine is said to be putting out about 370 hp and 500 lbs of torque.

The car has also had a significant amount of maintenance done by professional Chrysler mechanics and Mopar racers at a local garage.  Recent maintenance work includes: full tune up, newer rear suspension with shocks and extra lift springs, transmission service, and cooling system.

The seller has no time for:

1) dreamers 
2) test pilots
3) tire kickers
4) any other type of losers

  1. Nice. Would want to upgrade the brakes from single master cylinder (anti stop) drum brakes with that much power under the hood.

  2. And I've got no time for bronchitis, but you don't hear me complaining, seller.
