1 OF 625 CONVERT., 440 V8, 3 SPD AUTO, PS, PB, COLD R134a A/C, NICE LETTER CAR!
Mopar fans know how important one little letter can be. It takes a nice full-size convertible and turns it into something that is rare, luxurious, and powerful. This 1964 Chrysler 300K has all the right luxury touches and an upgraded 440 V8 heart. So when you consider only 625 convertibles were produced, we know this classic won't last long at this price.
Aside from just being ultra rare, this Chrysler droptop is also a great looking premium classic. The front end manages to be aggressive and graceful at the same time. There was no need for side trim, because the sheetmetal had a masterful profile all on its own where the complicated design lines were smoothed into a sophisticated silhouette. There are signs of Virgil Exner's brilliance in the headlights and front fender sculpting and the soft Nassau Blue paint keeps it from looking too heavy. It was repainted a few years ago – long enough for it to have settled nicely, but recent enough that you get the great gloss of a modern application. They weren't quite ready to give up tailfins over at Chrysler in '64, so the ridges on the rear quarters add just the right amount of style. It all ends in a nicely formed rear end where the chrome bumpers, rear panel, and taillights all seem to blend together in a carefully crafted execution – a true sign this was a designer's era in American cars.
Beneath the power folding white top is a great matching white interior. These "letter series" Chryslers were all about offering both luxury and performance, and the best way to understand it comes the moment you sit in the cushy front bucket seats. You get the proper squared off steering wheel that came on the premium models, and beyond that is an instrument panel with big, bold, and easy to read with round gauges. This readout package offers everything you want in a sports car, except a tach. That's because it's down on the center console next to the gearshift for a true blending of performance and luxury. As a full-size convertible, there's plenty of room to carry family and friends. And this one even has a few subtle upgrades to keep them all happy. For example there is a CD changer in the very ample trunk, and also the air conditioning has been converted to modern R134a, so staying cool with the top down has never been easier.
The engine bay looks honest and nicely maintained (including a new alternator), but it also holds a secret. The motor for these cars was a 413 cubic-inch V8. That's a pretty powerful big block, but this one has even more Mopar movement thanks to an upgrade to a 440ci powerplant with four-barrel carburetor. This really helps to further the 300K's mission of being a performance car for the luxury set. On the road the extra wallop of power is handled gracefully by the three-speed automatic transmission and power steering. There's even modern Goodyear tires nicely disguised with classic wire wheel covers.
Rare classics with this much power and appeal are usually not this affordable. So you know you need to be quick if you want to make this 300K yours. Call today!!!
