SOLD 1966 Chrysler 300 Series 300 Non Letter Series Convertible 34k Miles
Up for sale is an all original 1966 Chrysler 300 Non Letter Series Convertible in nearly immaculate unrestored condition. The vehicle has lived its life in Pennsylvania and has only 34026 original miles on it. It is rust-free and has always been kept in a garage.
The vehicle was purchased new by Beatrice Cornforth of Pittsburgh, PA in 1966 and stayed with the her until her passing in the late 1980's. A very close family friend of hers has owned the car ever since. As of the late 80's, the car has been in Wormleysburg, PA and has been properly maintained by Mike Gardner Restoration of Lebanon, PA. He is an esteemed mechanic and restorer, who frequently works on Pierce Arrows and other fine vintage domestic vehicles.
In terms of originality, the car has maintained all of its original parts, aside from necessary engine part replacements and the replacement of its convertible top.
Remarkably, due to great care throughout its ownership, the paintwork is beautiful and shows no signs of chipping or flaking. The only notable imperfections in the paint appear on the hood, which shows some crazing in the front left corner. The hood was repainted at some point during Ms. Cornforth's ownership. Some nicks along the doors are also visible, as one may expect, with a much more minimal occurrence on the passenger's side door.
The chrome appears to be in similarly excellent condition. Notable pitting is nowhere to be found. The chrome gleams and sparkles.
All lights, buttons, and switches function properly, aside from the clock (which gives the car some vintage charm). The power top is also still perfectly functional.
The matching whitewalls are lovely and spare is still present in the trunk.
Interior trim is in perfect shape and the original vinyl seats are all in fantastic condition as well. The trim shows little to no wear, including the seat backs, which look like they never saw a backseat passenger.
In terms of how the car was first purchased, the story goes that Aunt B's son saw this beautiful Chrysler convertible in the dealership down the street in Pittsburgh from where they lived and kept bugging his mother about it. After consistently bugging her for quite a while, she drove to the dealership one day and that was that.
