1964 Chrysler Windsor Convertible
Jay writes: I just picked up a 1964 Chrysler Windsor Convertible. (Up here in Canada, they were Windsors, not Newports, for some reason).
The Mopar needs some minor restoration but fortunately the previous owner has done all the heavy stuff: Rebuilt 383; Mild Comp Cam; Weiand Intake; Holley 750 Carb; Electronic Ignition Conversion; 3.55 Gears out back; K&N Chrome Filter Assembly; Front Disk Brake Conversion; New Top; Recovered Seats.
I finished the restoration of my 1964 Windsor Convertible, back to the original color! The picture shows the restored Chrysler before going to the new owner.
Fun ride! There are probably not as many top-down convertible days in Canada as you would like, but the ones that show up will provide you with convertible crusing opportunities! RE 2016 Update: lucky new owner!
Bill Watson adds: Although the Newport was called Windsor in Canada, the Canadian Windsor was upmarket of the Newport in that backup lights, Torqueflite
and a number of other items were standard on the Windsor but optional on the Newport. Also, the Newport had a base interior seating package
along with an optional choice.The Windsor used Newports optional interior as standard equipment. And, the wide side trim on the 1964
Windsor was based on the Saratoga 300 (300 in the U.S.) and not the narrow trim of the U.S. Newport.
Thanks for the information Bill!
