For Sale: 1960 Chrysler 300 in BRIDGEPORT, Connecticut

Vehicle Description

The 300F introduced a new, higher power 413 cu in (6.8 L) 'wedge' engine delivering 375 HP from the factory. A new, and completely unique “Cross Ram” manifold was used, placing the carbs on each side of the engine. The design was to have a “supercharging” effect in the heart of the RPM range. The 300F's fins grew to even wilder proportions in 1960, starting at the front of the door and ending with V-shaped taillights and a "bird-bath" faux spare on the trunk. Never common, Chrysler 300 letter cars have a dedicated following, once you get behind the wheel you can drive this "business man's express" with confidence, knowing that there isn't another Jet Age American car on the road that can keep up.

One of only 964 built, this car came from the factory in black with tan interior and remains in largely correct original condition. This 300 spent the bulk of its life in the Pacific Northwest where it was not exposed to snow and other corrosive elements. As a result, it is a phenomenally straight and well-maintained car. It is powered by its original 413 cross ram induction engine and torqueflite three speed pushbutton transmission. All the sheet metal is original to the car and there is no signs of rust repair or accident repair anywhere on them. The paint is very nice but thin in spots as some of it is believed to be original. Likewise, the interior is carefully treated and preserved and has the appearance one would expect of an interior that was restored. All the gauges and instrumentation work. The steering wheel is beautiful, and the car runs and drives great. This 300F has its original owner’s manual and has known history since the late 1980's. It is one of 290 currently in the Chrysler registry. It is argued that the 300F is the most handsome and desirable of all of Chrysler 300 series automobiles. Indeed, this one is a true representative of care-of-ownership, styling and performance.
