In 1960 this may have been the only sports-type touring car in America. It offered a hand-shift gearbox, to control a four-speed French Port-a-Mousson fully syncromesh transmission for the 400-horspower engine option. On the other hand the Standard configuration was a 375-horsepower engine and a Torque Flite Automatic transmission. The interior came as four separate contoured seats and a tachometer console in the floor hump.
in 1961 Chrysler retained its familiar fins of the Forward Look style, but they noticeably tweaked the front end with canted pairs of headlamps and a restyled grill. The new Yorker and Windsor Lines were joined by a low-priced Chrysler the New-Port built on 122 inch wheel-base with a 361-cubic-inch V-8.
