Chrysler first introduced the Newport in the year 1940 as a show car which had five vehicles in the lineup. The first Newport was the Phaeton which was powered by a straight engine connected to a three speed manual transmission. The Newport is designed on the same platform as that of the Chrysler New Yorker and both the cars use similar drive train features and engine compartments.
The next upgrade to the Newport came in the year 1950 with the introduction of the Chrysler Windsor and the Saratoga, while the New Yorker received a minor facelift in the form of a hardtop model. All the cars use the similar 5.9 liter V8 motor and use similar drive train features, hence the engine can be refitted to either one of the vehicles.
In the year 1960, Chrysler unveiled the third generation of the Newport which used a 361 Chrysler 5.9 liter V8 engine, producing 265 HP. The 361 can be found in workshops round the country and these are up for sale at various dealerships. The 361 V8 can be refitted to any of the five models in the Newport lineup along with the transmission.
The Newport was upgraded again in 1965 and this continued till 1968. This model had the option of a 6.3 liter V8 upgrade in the form of the Newport Town, which came into mass production later that year.
The New Port Coupe (1969–1973) came with a 6.8 liter V8 engine connected to a three speed manual and a two speed automatic transmission. Used Newport engines are available for sale in various workshops as well as over the internet.
The Newport Hardtop Coupe (1974-1978) used the same platform and drive train as that of the previous generation and hence considerable a sum was saved on research and development. Due to this, the cost benefit was passed on to the customers that resulted in increased sales.
The last upgrade to the Newport series came in the year 1979 and this included a motor upgrade with minor drive train enhancements. The new cars were powered by a 5.9 L V8 and featured all wheel drive or front wheel drive according to the customer’s choice.
