Chrysler ’61, featuring the Newport — a full-size Chrysler in a new, lower price range

Can’t afford it? Price the Newport! The Newport! The beautiful surprise from Chrysler. Proof that Chrysler’s still in the business of building them full-size only. No Jr. editions!

And what do you get for its new, lower price? A new Firebolt V-8 delivered 510 miles on a tankful of regular gas in a Mobil Oil supervised test. Torsion-bar suspension, perennial favorite of the road-test experts.

Unibody — one-piece welded, specially padded and sprayed to muffle noise, dipped in seven different baths to prevent rust. And there’s a new aircraft-type alternator that produces electric current even at engine idle.

Road-test the roomy Newport. Then get set for a surprise at the price.

Ever try to stop a landslide? That’s as hard as keeping people from buying Chryslers. There must be a reason. Reasons is more like it.

A fresh, proud Take Charge look. An optional 440 cubic inch V-8. The biggest in the price class. So are the brakes. A new 3-in-1 front seat for some models. Room for three when you need it. Converts to individually adjustable seats for two.

’66 Chrysler Newport: The only thing a Chrysler hasn’t got is a big price tag.

If you’ve been thinking a Chrysler automatically means big money, you’re in for a happy kind of surprise.

The 2-door hard-top, in our new Bronze color — equipped with a 383 cu. in. V-8, automatic transmission, power brakes, power steering, radio, heater, white-walls and deluxe wheel covers — is actually priced just a few dollars a month more than the most popular smaller cars you might ordinarily consider, equipped the same way.

Also included is a very comforting package of safety equipment — seat belts, padded dash and sun visors, safety-action door handles, back-up lights, Safety-Rim wheels, and more. Now that you know how really easy it is to do — go see your Chrysler dealer and move up … move now.

’68 Chrysler Newport giving smaller cars a run for your money

We’re giving the smaller cars a run for your money.  But it isn’t really a fair contest. Not when a Chrysler Newport is priced just a few dollars more a month than the most popular smaller cars, comparably equipped.

Not when that slight price difference buys you all this: A 383 cu. in, V-8 that runs on regular gas. The longest wheelbase in Newport’s class.  The best overage resale value in our history.
