1965 Chrysler Newport Town and Country Wagon

Our Chrysler was brought to Finland in 1991 by Finnish drag race driver Jarmo Gronman, (at that time he raced a stock six-pack Challenger). The engine in the Chrysler then was a 440 Magnum from a R/T Charger.

During the years the Chrysler was "cannibalized" for parts and when the car came to us, it was without the engine, transmission and rear axle.

I think it was year 1996 when we got the car.

So we took engine etc. from our 1966 Dodge Coronet 440 4Door sedan. (The Coronet was quite a sleeper: it ran 13.6/ 169 km/h 1/4 Mile....)

Check out more pictures! The text is in Finnish, but there is some new pictures...

It looks like that big wagon REALLY rocks! :-)

Keep crusin' the Finnish countryside and try not to run over too many pesky econoboxes and jellybean cars! . :-)
