Unique: ’65 Chrysler 300L Convertible
The Chrysler letter cars are among the most collectible big muscle cars of the era. The series began in 1955 with the 300 and continued in alphabetical order until 1965. By 1965, the Chrysler 300 letter brand had been diluted by all the various models offered as plain 300s. Chrysler ended production of the letter series with the 300L. The 300L sold quite well, with 2,405 hardtops and 440 convertibles but it did not hold the same magic as the more exclusive early cars. Today’s featured 300 Convertible is a special order car and is being sold by the son of the original owner.
As the story is told, the owner wanted a 300L but without bucket seats. He was a Turbine car test owner so he knew a few people in the Chrysler hierarchy. At his request, they ordered a plain 300 Convertible for him but with all of the L equipment except it has a bench seat. Neat story. The car is Forest Green with white leather interior. It packs 413 horses and a HD suspension. It even has a working 8-track player with tapes. These cars have a big following and this one presents a neat opportunity for those who appreciate the big Chrysler letter cars. The asking price is $33,000. Click here for the listing.
