Parade anyone?: ’65 Chrysler 300
Here we have a classic American luxury convertible from the mid-50s. In other words it is huge and powerful and very capable of leading any parade. Chryslers were doing very well in the mid-60s although their famous letter series cars were falling out of favor. But the 300 would soldier on with or without letters. This one has a big V8, Torqueflite transmission, special order leather interior, power windows, power driver’s seat and rare air conditioning. The original owner used it sparingly and always garaged it. He owned the car for 42 years! The current seller tells us there is minimal rust but that doesn’t help us evaluate this one accurately. As far as gigantic Chrysler convertibles, go, this one is on the restrained and elegant side of the scale. It is far less busy than the predecessor and nicer than those that followed.
