Vehicle Description


1959 Chrysler 300E 2 door hardtop. The odometer reads 85,642 (believed to be actual) I acquired this many years ago, a partially completed project car. ...Yes, the rust worms attacked, but too their dismay, they are slowly leaving. Powered by a 413 cid cross ram dual 4 barrel carb, and a pushbutton TorqueFlite transmission, the engine was completely dissasembled, resealed and is ready to rumble. Transmission required to complete the rebuild: clutch pack, seals, torque converter, etc. Took me a while, but found a good correct frame and radiator spupport -left powertrain out, for ease of floor pan replacements, which I have aquired a lot of needed parts over the years, fuel tank and mounting straps, new radiator dash pad and more. It will need a complete interior kit.

As you can see from the photos majority of trim is still on car and in pretty good shape; stainless will need polished, chrome replated.
The purchased price = remaining restoration costs will yeild a tidy sum when completed, not to mention the pride of ownership of a very rare and unique automobile.

I've got far more invested but at age 72, don't have the time or inclation to complete. So if you're game to finish, $28,800 buys it.
