1967 Chrysler 300 Hardtop
The first thing to remember, talking about the Chrysler company, is
its founder - an extraordinary man, whose name was Walter Percy
Chrysler. Born in 1875, Walter had a fascinating career. He worked
his way up through positions such as a supervisor, a
superintendent, a division master mechanic and a general master
mechanic. Following the example of Henry Ford, many American
businessmen started their own automobile manufacturing companies.
In the 20th century, many small automakers were created just to be
absorbed by bigger companies. Similarly, the Chrysler was founded
by Walter Chrysler on June 6, 1925, when the Maxwell Motor Company
(est. 1904) was re-organized into the Chrysler Corporation.
For consignment we give you large and in charge, from the era of
big Detroit iron where status was measured by the inch, this
beautiful example of the Chrysler 300. Sporting its original drive
train, vinyl top, very presentable paint, it has undergone an
engine rebuild at the 96,000 mile marker.
Plenty of Dark Red Metallic covers the straight and true steel
slabs that have been formed to create this stylish example of the
300. Gaps are well minded, and paint, being original, has not lost
its luster. Chrome and badging are all original and all looking
good. With its loooooong hood, and 4 door passenger compartment
(more like apartment) and loooooong trunk, I'm getting ready to
move in! An original black vinyl top is nearly perfect, as is the
plentiful chrome trim around all the windows, and wheel wells.
Within those wheel wells are fantastically preserved turbine style
wheel covers with a 300 badged center. Overall a very nice exterior
A swing of the massive but well-balanced doors and we are greeted
with pristine panels that have a mixture of black vinyl and
horizontal ribbed 300 badged chrome, and some black carpeting on
the bottom. Slipping inside we see a large split bench with some
tuck and roll and smooth vinyl all in black. Noted on the driver's
seat there is a slight tear in one of the seams that reveals the
foam padding underneath. Otherwise the seats front and rear are all
good. A long GM styled dash with black padded top, and more chrome
horizontal ribbed chrome have all the original and functioning
controls. Below the dash we note an Audiovox radio and speaker
controller and a CB radio, breaker 1-9, break! Black carpet is
installed and in good condition as is the headliner above which is
nice and tight. Also, a note to the trunk which has its original
lining and is very clean and very well preserved.
A V8 with 440 cubes pumps out 350hp and is fed by a single 4-barrel
carburetor, sits in a clean but original engine bay. Transmission
is a correct A727 Torqueflite 3-speed automatic. All looking good
in the engine cosmetic department, which screams period
Nice straight steel with some surface rusting, good floorpans,
wheel wells, and all clear on the mechanical front are seen
underneath. Torsion bar upfront, and leaf spring in the rear make
up the suspension, and power drum brakes are all around.
This example started right up and drove nicely as expected with a
large car as such. Handling is cushy, and because of its size it
will not turn on a dime, but cruises wonderfully, providing a very
smooth ride. Noted the AC works but needs a charge, but all other
buttons and knobs function as they should.
Mostly original, well kept, rebuilt original engine and
transmission, exterior in fine shape, get in, turn the key and feel
those 350 horses take you down the road. What more could you ask
