Chrysler Newport (3rd gen) 1968-1973

The Newport was a name used by Chrysler for both a hardtop body designation and also for its lowest priced model between 1961 and 1981. Chrysler first used the Newport name on a 1940 show car, of which five vehicles were produced.

Chrysler Newport history:
Chrysler Newport Phaeton 1940-1941
Chrysler Newport (1st gen) 1960-1964
Chrysler Newport (2nd gen) 1964-1968
Chrysler Newport (3rd gen) 1968-1973
Chrysler Newport (4th gen) 1973-1978
Chrysler Newport (5th gen) 1978-1981

Third generation 1968-1973
The Newport was completely redesigned again for the year 1969, and featured the distinctive "Fuselage Styling" that would become symbolic of Chrysler's full-size cars until the end of the 1973 model year. Although retaining the same 124 in (3,150 mm) wheelbase that it shared with the premium New Yorker, this generation Newport was longer, lower, wider, and several hundred pounds heavier than the 1965–1968 Newports. Although still offered in 2-door and 4-door hardtop, 2-door convertible, and 4-door sedan models, station wagons were no longer part of the Newport series, as the Town & Country became a separate model outright.

Newport convertibles were discontinued after 1970, following a drop in sales of 48% that year, to 1,124 convertibles; while total Newport sales were down almost 30%, to 110,292 units, despite the restyling. Available in 2- and 4-door hardtops and 4-door sedans, the Newport Custom would still be offered as the top-line Newport through the entire 1969–1973 design cycle. First appearing in 1971, the Newport Royal was an entry-level model in the Newport Series. It borrowed the name of the entry-level Chrysler from 1937–50; but the Royal name was dropped in 1972.

For the 1971 model year, the Royal came standard with the 255 hp (190 kW; 259 PS) 360 cu in (5.9 L) V8, with optional 275 hp (205 kW; 279 PS) or 300 hp (224 kW; 304 PS) 383 cu in (6.3 L) engines, but not the 440 cu in (7.2 L); the Custom was standard with the 275 hp (205 kW; 279 PS) 383 cu in (6.3 L) V8, and the 300 hp (224 kW; 304 PS) 383 cu in (6.3 L) or 335 hp (250 kW; 340 PS) 440 cu in (7.2 L) V8s as options.[16] For 1972, the Royal came standard with the 175 hp (130 kW; 177 PS) 360 cu in (5.9 L) V8, with larger-displacement engines unavailable, while the Custom was standard with the 190 hp (142 kW; 193 PS) 400 cu in (6.6 L) V8, and the 225 hp (168 kW; 228 PS) single- and 245 hp (183 kW; 248 PS) dual-exhaust 440 cu in (7.2 L) V8s were optional. Power output would steadily decrease on all engines during this generation due to stricter emissions standards and rising fuel prices.
