In the late 1940s, Chrysler was behind the times in terms of styling with what were considered tall, boxy cars, so they hired a new stylist, Virgil Exner, who radically redesigned the entire Chrysler line and created what they called “The Forward Look.” Exner lowered the roofline and made the cars sleeker, smoother, and more aggressive. With a long hood and short deck, the wedge-like designs of the 300 series suddenly brought Chrysler to the forefront of design, with Ford and General Motors quickly working to catch up.
Finished in Oyster White over Red, this very rare 1962 Chrysler 300 is ready for your enjoyment. Tastefully upgraded with a rebuilt 440 RB motor and dual quads and a 3.30 posi-trac read end, the sleek 300 puts power to the pavement dressed in an Italian inspired body that was years ahead of its time.
Other 300 features include:
- Pushbutton automatic
- Dash mounted rear view mirror
- Sculptured fender mirrors
- Thumb-level signal control
- 3-D Instrumentation
- Power steering
- Power brakes remote mirrors
- Golden Tone push button radio
For the automobile enthusiast that wants a streetable sculpture from the Exner era, this 300 might be the best buy of the summer.
