great stories - thanks for posting them!

The 300 F owner Dave was a real nice guy when I met him at Hershey last October. The car is absolutely beautiful and rare with the black interior. I told him about the 300 G I recently re-upholstered with a black interior too and he knew my friend and his car as soon as he heard "black interior".
Here's more shots of his car and notice the vanity plate I want in PA for the Imperial

I think that's the first cross ram I ever saw with A/C on it.

Neither one of these stories are new, but a Mopar Feature in The Sunday New York Times is certainly Hot Cockie!

Beautiful car!!! Triple black is not my bag, but a lot of people like
it, and it does look great on that particular car. My '58 NYer vert
that I had in the '80s was black with white top and turquoise interior
and Kelsy Hayes wires and www's., really sharp.  I think it's in
Sweden now, as I saw a pic of one there that's identical, right down to
the wheels, and how many like that could there possibly be?

that 300 F was special ordered to get the black leather, so A/C could be super rare as well

That 2 cyl Compressor looks like the one on my F3, and even the Saint,
for that matter... were they the same, ie interchange, for all those
years?

There was the V2 up through '60, and the RV2 from '61 through '79.  They look similar.
