Chrysler was noted for offering Limited Edition Spring Specials to get customers into the dealership after the snow had melted. One such Limited Edition Spring Special was the 1970 Newport 440, with only 175 produced.

Most Newports had a 383 between the fenders, but a savvy buyer could navigate his way through the order sheet to special order a 350hp/440cid. The Newport 440 is not one of those. The Newport 440 had the 375hp 440 TNT.

The Spring Special "Newport 440" was only available as a 2-door Hardtop in the High Impact Colors of Rallye Red or Lemon Twist. The interior came in only black or white, and the vinyl top was only the same color as the interior. Other equipment included:

The package added $1,240 to the price of the Newport Hardtop -- putting it into Chrysler 300 territory in 1970.
