“I purchased this car from my father in 1974 for my enjoyment,” the seller continues. “It will be sold with a collection of service and personal papers I call its ‘baby book.’ 

“Garaged mostly in Ohio (the car was sold originally by a dealership in Cincinnati) and New Mexico, the car has original paint — some fading, original upholstery — some wear/tear, has been maintained, there are nicks, scratches, chips, minor rust, hood dent and bent antenna.”

You can see those scratches and nicks in the photos that are part of the car’s advertisement.

The car comes with various Mopar parts, tires and “miscellaneous items” in the trunk. 

“I will gladly share any information I remember concerning this vehicle with the purchaser,” the seller adds. “This a stock production car used by my family. It is important to me that the third owner of this Newport appreciate and enjoy it as I have these many years.”
