More Details & Pictures

This is my 1978 Chinook Newport/Omega. She is 98% original!! Which is almost impossible to find, I’ve only seen one other Newport this original and it’s in the Netherlands!

And she runs! We drove her almost 400 miles from Montana to Utah. Have driven her up and around these Utah Mountains, and although she goes slow she goes! On a flatter highway she can reach 65-70mph no problem.

80,000-ish miles. The odometer is broken, but I had no issue getting a Title & Registration here in Utah. It differs by state, but here she is old enough to not need to pass emissions.

Extremely simple Toyota Hilux body & engine, easy to work on easy to find parts on. NOT a dually, so doesn’t have those wheel problems the Sunraders do.

She has a sink, stove, heater, and toilet! The fridge was a mess so that was removed, but the awesome 70s patterned door was kept.

I took out some removable aspects like the table and toilet, but have them sitting in the garage along with a box of extra parts & doodads, which is all yours.

Updates include:

-Brand new cushion foam w/ luxurious leather-like vinyl, super soft and spill proof!

-Resealed the front two overcab windows.

-Reglazed one of the side windows, have enough glazing to do the other side just haven’t gotten to it.

-Removed any water damaged vinyl near the overcab windows, and cleaned and sprayed the fiberglass underneath in case of mold. Tried to re-vinyl it but didn’t do a great job aesthetically haha.

I can’t verify everything, but the previous owner did say it had new carpet, table, tires, plexiglass in the front windows, and said the windows and skylight were resealed.

Only things I would say would be on your to do list, although all of them optional, would be:

-Glaze/reseal the back door. I have the appropriate glazing in my box of goodies.

-Other side window could use a reglazing too.

-Gas cap is a little loose, could use a new one of those but not necessary.

-Back door lock can be tricky, I think some fiddling and new screws would fix it I just haven’t had the time!

-A few aesthetic updates on the exterior, she has a few small rusty areas but nothing bad or compromising, the caulking on the back window is a little sloppy, and she could use a polish and new decals if you care about those things!

-Keep an eye on the lights. At one point we drove her at night and the lights would flicker off for 5 seconds or so at a time (car would still be running fine). I took her to a shop last summer and they couldn’t replicate the problem. We haven’t seen it happen since, but I wanna be transparent for safety’s sake!
