1968 Chrysler Newport Convertible yellow woodie
Although fake wood (a.k.a. Di-Noc film) is best known for its appearance on station wagons, a few brave and/or desperate designers in the 60’s and 70’s used it to “enhance” other cars, such as this seemingly mint Chrysler Newport Sport Convertible. It’s actually an interesting mix of muscle and kitsch, with the fake wood, fender-top turn signals, and white interior contrasted with its high performance 383, 727 Torqueflite tranny, dual exhaust and Magnum 500 style wheels. It’s said to be one of 178, so it’s probably safe to say you’ll be the only one in the 60’s woodie convertible V8 class at the Friday cruise-in.
This 1968 Chrysler Newport Convertible is on eBay at a dealer in Florida, with reserve not yet met.
