NEWPORT CORDOBA Five years prior to its introduction as a stand-alone model, Chrysler added the special-edition Cordoba to the Newport line midway through the 1970 production run. Available only as a two-door or four-door hardtop, the Cordoba featured special gold paint, "Aztec" body side molding, an "Espanol" vinyl roof (with Aztec motif), gold painted wheels and grille fascia and an Aztec hood emblem. The Aztec theme was also present throughout the gold interior, which included the vinyl seats and door panels, as well as the dash and glovebox appliqué, all of which are present on our feature car, owned by Indianapolis, Indiana, resident Sue Figert Kennedy. Changes to the paint and interior were prohibited. Mechanically, the Cordoba was just like any other base Newport in that it came with the base 383-cu.in. V-8 and three-speed manual; with the noted exceptions, all other options were still viable.
