Featured above is Wayne B’s stunning 1958 Chrysler New Yorker. It’s well equipped with a 392 Hemi V8, push button automatic transmission, “Total Contact” power brakes, power steering, front AND rear air conditioning and “Electro-Touch” tuner radio. The car is one of only 3,205 built and has taken best of show or best in class at every show that I’ve attended with Wayne. It’s just that nice.
Above is Ken B’s one of 440 built 1965 Chrysler 300L convertible. It’s the last of the 300 “letter series”. No, the new 300M does NOT count. The car is equipped with a 413 cubic inch/360 horsepower V8, automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, power windows, leather interior, power trunk release, reclining passenger seat, center console with vacuum gauge (for fuel economy?) and rear seat heater. It’s all original with 88,000 miles on the odometer.
Above is Gary D’s 1966 Chrysler Newport. It was recently featured in High Performance MOPAR, not only because of its pristine condition, but also because this 440 V8 with six barrel carburetion powered car has also run a best time of 13.400 seconds at 103 M.P.H. Not bad for a 5000 lb. land yacht! Other features include a Torqueflite automatic transmission and Dana 60 rear with 3.73:1 gear ratio, air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, back seat heater, and cellular phone. I don’t think that the phone was a factory option!
Gary’s 1966 Chrysler New Yorker appears below. This unrestored car has only 80,000 miles on its 440 cubic inch “TNT” V8. It’s also equipped with power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, power antenna, AM/FM “reverb” radio and rear seat heat. Gary doesn’t race this one, he just enjoys cruisin’ in it.
Featured above is Al C’s fantastic 1966 Plymouth Fury II. Options and features include the old style 318 V8 (“poly” head or “wide block” as it’s known), 727 Torqueflite automatic transmission with TCI Torque converter, 8 3/4″ rear with 3.23:1 gears and Sure Grip. Mechanical modifications include an MSD ignition system and .440″ lift Lunati camshaft with solid roller lifters.
Lenny L’s 1970 Chrysler 300 is pictured above. It’s fully loaded and is equipped with a 440 “T.N.T.” engine.
Shown below are photos of Steve’s 1970 Chrysler 300/Hurst. Steve writes…
“…1970 300-HURST: 1 out of 485 produced, HURST features include: fiberglass hood and trunk, leather int, bucket seats w/ passenger recliner, 440/375 HP, HD 727
trans, 323 rear, HD susp, chrome wheels, H70X15 Goodyear polyglass tires, and
dual exhaust with chrome extensions.”
This particular HURST is 1 of the highest option cars left in existence and has almost every factory option listed on its 2 page window sticker. The car was originally owned by a little old lady ( no joke) from Pa. I am the 7th proud owner and I have contacted
all of the previous owners in tracing its history. The 3rd owner did a
cosmetic restoration but the drive train is mint original with 93K. The car
left PA and went to MA and CT before I came across it, thanks to Mopar Power Club
member Steve Kirschenbaum who saw the car for sale in Carlisle. Steve gave me
the owners number in July ’99, and I bought the car in August. The car was in
great shape and just needed some light mechanical and detailing done. I love
going to car cruizes with it and can be seen at Bellmore NY, Danbury CT and
local Westchester spots.”
