Vehicle Description

1970 Chrysler 300 Hardtop

This generation of the Chrysler 300 lasted only from 1969 to 1970 and they weren't produced in huge numbers. About 21,000 were produced in 1970 and of them, only 9,589 were hardtop coupes. At 78 inches wide and 224.7 inches long, it was one of the largest cars produced in this period. In comparison, the Buick Electra 225 of the time was 5,715mm while the 300 was 5,707mm long! Seating capacity was limited when ordered with bucket seats and seat belts to five passengers, but we imagine that in the day before seatbelt regulations, a lot more people piled in the back of these land yachts.

For consignment, a well preserved '70 Chrysler 300 with just 30,624 title verified actual miles! Coming to our Hallowed Halls with big block power under the hood, 2 copies of the broadcast sheet, the sales order invoice, and laminated service receipts for the first 15 years of the cars life it's evident someone really cared about this full size muscle car. This was someone's Sunday driver and likely proudly pampered, evidenced by the plastic covers on all the seats, (remember your aunt's sofa? Yep, same stuff.). Not only is the styling gloriously 1970, but the sheer size of this car puts it in a class of its own, and the nose of the car gets to that class three days before the tail.

Pure 70's goodness, Mystic Gold Metallic covers this car and who knows how many gallons it took! The single stage paint has the right amount of shine to it as it is the original finish. V1Y tortoise grain vinyl covers the entire hardtop, an incredible and creative option for some Chryslers in 1970, and the top is in excellent condition. If the absolute girth of this car doesn't impress showgoers, the top certainly will! The front fascia includes hidden headlights and opposing trim pieces that angle downward toward the center. The chrome bumper is in good condition and surrounds the grille like an end cap. Two small turn signal indicator lights protrude from the fender tops and flank an enormous expanse of hood. The rear tail lights with reflectors span the width of the tail surrounded by a chrome end cap here as well. The trunk is as long as the hood and exhaust tips exit in a narrow arrangement under the bumper. The hubcaps are original to the car and the body partially covers the back wheels, almost skirt style and lends just a touch of sleekness to this big box of a car.

Swingingopen the giant doors reveals a white interior. The door panel has a smart rectangle design that intersects the pull handle and armrest and contains a 300 emblem on the top. We note a little surface dirt we're sure a good detailer can remedy, white is always going to need vigilance. Maybe that's why the owner put plastic covers on the front buckets and rear bench. There's some discoloration to the plastic but it appears the seats have been saved and are still looking great. The rear passengers get armrests, ashtrays, and window cranks. The middle rear passenger will need to straddle the drive shaft hump but will have the best view of the three. More horizontal lines on the steering wheel which sits on a tilting and telescoping column. A horizontal speedometer goes to 120 mph and a row of idiot lights are positioned above it. Big rocker switches control lights, flashers, and wipers because little toggles would just look weird. An AM/FM radio sits in the flat, black dashboard with temperature controls that include a dial adjuster. The center console is constructed of plastic and wood trim lines the shifter panel, matching the bulbous wood shifter knob that is canted rearward. Period clear plastic floor mats look right at home in their patina tones and have protected the black loop style carpet below. The headliner also looks to be in great condition. The trunk is pretty basic and clean and in case you need to know...HUGE!

A date correct but non-verifiable as numbers matching due to surface corrosion 440ci TNT V8 sits in its original place and these bad boys were rated at 375 horsepower. It's tied to a numbers-matching A727 Torqueflite 3-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the 8 � rear and 3.23 gears. Fortunately, this behemoth is equipped with power brakes, disc and drum, front and rear respectively.

We would call this driver quality conditions underneath with some surface rust and oil spray throughout. There's some advanced surface rust on the length of the exhaust and the rear axle and differential. But overall, it's in good condition considering the age. The true dual exhaust enters stock style mufflers and then exits out the back as noted earlier. Independent front suspension is comprised of torsion bars while the rear is cushioned by leaf springs. 235/75/15's are at all four corners.

You can pump iron all you want, but once you get inside this car, you're gonna feel like the puny dude on the beach who gets sand kicked in his face. It's cavernous to say the least but it's really the exterior expanses that make the car feel big. Minding the garage opening, curbs and other cars, we launch this ship onto our test loop. The 440 cuber sounds pretty good but the exhaust tips are in the next county so we're not getting the full impact. The car weighs over two tons and exhibits good pick up even though it's no muscle car. It's got a soft ride and a bit floaty on those 75-series tires. Hopefully people will see us coming down the street and get out of the way because the horn is not working. Wearing shorts in this car on a hot day is going to be a challenge and anyone who's had a plastic sofa cover knows what we're talking about. Overall, a great ride with incredible presence with the only other notable flaw being the fasten safety belt light being illuminated even with the car turned off.

Depending on where you park this car, you might need to register it in two states. Seriously though, measure your garage or carport if you're considering this rare classic. There's no way for people not to be impressed with this car, not just for its size but for the period in America and automotive history it represents.
