1972 Chrysler Newport Royal

Coming home to Maine at last. Saw this big Chrysler for sale in Ellsworth. I think it's 1972.  My father had 3 or 4 of the big Chryslers in a row. I learned to drive in one of them. When you're talking 'land yacht' these early 70s Chryslers are where it's at.

And it was blue day on Blue Hill Bay.

  1. Great looking car. It would look like a boat coming down the road. It's still in great condition. Did you see how much they wanted for it? It's always great when you see a car and have so many great stories from the past. Thanks for the share.
