Rare Rides: A 1967 Chrysler 300 – Large and In Charge

0 comment

A current version of Purchase/Drive/Burn included a Chrysler 300M from the flip of the century — a car which represented the third time Chrysler created a line of automobiles sporting “300” badges. The opposite day, the Web introduced the 300M’s closest ancestor, and my curiosity piqued.

And since we’re into coupes on Rare Rides recently, come alongside as we take a look at an enormous, daring coupe from Chrysler.

The primary iteration of the 300 existed in supplier showrooms between 1955 and 1965. All of those automobiles have been two-doorways in nature, and coupe, hardtop, or convertible in styling. Generally known as the “letter collection,” the 300s have been muscle automobiles. Highly effective and fast off the road, by 1965 the 300L model had a 413 V8 (6.eight-liter).

Overlapping the letter collection was the second era of 300, which is the place at the moment’s Rare Experience comes into focus. Sensibly often known as “non-letter,” the run of automobiles existed alongside the top of the letter collection for a few years. Beginning in 1962, non-letter automobiles have been there to exchange the aged Chrysler Windsor and Saratoga fashions. That’s the U.S.-market Windsor solely, as Canada held onto the Windsor identify by way of 1966 (a rebadged Newport).

Contemplating the success of the 300 line, Chrysler expanded its choices. Non-letter automobiles have been obtainable in each two- and 4-door variations, with a standard pillared sedan, hardtop, and convertible. The corporate reshuffled the lineup for ’sixty six after the letter automobiles headed out to pasture. Styling was revised in ’sixty seven to a substantial diploma, because the model headed towards what would develop into generally known as the fuselage period. The 4-door sedan choice went away, and clients have been restricted to the most important 440 V8 (7.2-liters). A three-velocity automated or 4-velocity guide have been out there, shifting slightly below four,four hundred kilos in 4-door guise.

One other styling replace in ’sixty eight hid the headlamps, and the second yr of the 1967-sixty eight model can be the final. Revised once more in 1969, styling went full fuselage, because the 300 got here with size. The previous mannequin was a scant 218.2 inches lengthy, and seventy nine.5 inches in width.

The brand new model shrunk to seventy nine.1 inches large, however extended to 224.7 inches on the identical 124-inch wheelbase. Heavy stuff. The 300 line made it via the 1971 mannequin yr, when it was cancelled. Its alternative was the brand new private luxurious Cordoba in 1975.

As we speak’s Rare Journey 300 is a really clear instance listed on the Windfall, Rhode Island Craigslist (eliminated). With manufacturing unit air con and a superb interior, it requested $10,000.
