Killer 300f pics
« on: June 09, 2008, 12:15:03 AM »

   Went to a car show yesterday and there was a killer 300F at the show. It was just restored last year in florida and brought to Newfoundland by a private collector. Just thought i'd share as this car was absolutely flawless.

   The show was bay wheels out in bay roberts. Probably one of the best shows held annually around here. Lots of different stuff seldom seen in St.Johns, I never miss it. Heres the link to the guys website with the 300...

   It was a beautiful day Sunday, almost topped 9 degrees. This shot was cruising out the Conception bay hwy. Thats me behind the 66' LeMans ragtop. Shot was taken by my buddies wife from their 55" Chevy 1st series truck.  
 

 
   Parked out back with the LeMans.
 

 
   Another few shots from out back.
 


 
 
   Bernies 55' pickup (not stock). We installed a Mustang front clip from TCI last winter and jammed a small block 350 w/vortec heads and a th350 trans. Also installed mono leaf suspension in the rear. Came out really nice.
 

 
   Mmmmm, Power Wagon. Can you say over restored kids? Base/clear chassis and all stainless hardware, WoW!!!
 


 
   Two more "C"s on the inside, nice cars. The 67' below is probably the straightest black car I have laid eyes on.
 


 
The only other "C' I have ever seen (other than mine) With the Imperial steering wheel.
 

 
   And the other, a real nice Monaco with console and tach

Nice pics..........and makes the oldmillmac think back over 48 yrs. ago. T'was a snowy day in Syracuse, NY at the War Memorial building, that Sunday in Feb.1960 when I traveled thru 10 inches of new snow, 30 miles, to the car show and see the new "300-F". (My '57 Desoto Adventurer was in the transmission shop, as usual.) I rode w/ my buddy who first introduced me to his 300-C, several years before. (I was only 15 then).....We arrived in his '58 Pontiac tri-power black Catalina Convertible.......recently crowned "Champ" at some dirt track, outside Weedsport, NY.
I watched Pontiac fans drool over the '60 Bonneville tri-power Convertible on display that day. I also noticed the Chrysler 300-F Convertible on display that day. No hood up, to show Ram-Induction,......no one to open the door and show power swivel seats, 4 passenger leather seating w/ consoles and power switches on demand. NO - ONE!
I went home knowing I would own one of these BEAUTIFUL BRAWNY BEASTS one day, and Chrysler Corporation damn sure needed my business and promotional advice.
What I learned over the next 2 years, before acquiring my "300-G", could fill volumes. If $100-$150,000 is the right price today for one.......I'd be the last to contest.
Jus' GET 'ER DONE.
5500.00 in 1960 was a little over 100 bucks a week! and they sold me one!
100,000 in 2008 is $2,000 a week....why doesn't everyone have one?..everything else is up X 20
Gas was 28 cents gal. in 1961.......is now $4.09
EVERYTHING IS INLINE EXCEPT....we don't make those fine cars anymore..........We make crap or import everything else.......
Harry Truman left the White House in 1952 in a new Saratoga HEMI......
Eisenhower left 8 years later in a Lincoln w/ a truck motor, using suicide doors.........
It's up to you young fellas to put America back into desireable, gratifying, performance automobiles.
 After 36 automobile purchases in my lifetime......never bought a Jap/mobile or Heiney-cruiser...........
Just Chryslers, Lincolns, Junk-Buckets, Monte Carlos, T-Birds, Charger R/Ts, Plymouth Fury lll (company car), Impala (Company car), Imperial,Buick, Olds, Grandville Convert., Chevy 427 SS, T/C van, Dodge Ram Charger truck, Ford Explorers, F150 4x4, Concorde, and yes, even a Desoto! (Adventurer Convert.)......Did I support the foreign car economy?.........not to my knowledge!
Walter P. died in 1940 w/ the best engineering in his factories.....tanks, airplanes and submarines wanted his products..........that's why Chrysler was able to put the Fastest Production Automobile on the market in 1955 and even made it greater for 6 more years. (H-L's were fakes)
Well, somebody bought Hondas and Toyotas and Mercedes for the last 25 years........ and someone paid for that foreign participation in our car market. You know now, it wasn't me! Even though we have lost our last 3 wars.......are we gonna lose this one too?........I, for one, want more than pics of grandous past days....we spend enough in Iraq every month to bring back the Edsel, Packards, Studebakers, Hudsons and Ramblers every day.
If we are stupid enough to put $4.00+ gas from the Middle East into German and Japanese cars every day while our car factories close, and EVEN borrowing the money from China to support it.....CRAZY!
I know I can be voted to be in charge of Chrysler New Car Production for 2009...........300-Fs & Gs....and a few 4 doors and wagons!.......

   What I call straight is the bodywork looking down the side at an angle. No imperfection's or wave's at all due to hour's and hour's of proper panel alignment and paint preperation. You can lay on an awesome lick of paint and buff and polish it till the cow's come home but it's all in vain if the metal it's sprayed on isn't straight.

I agree with what you say Dave, but there is a reason that the imports got a foot hold in the US..... carrman2008-06-10 11:26:05
