General Tech / Two different sized wheels
« on: January 10, 2010, 02:04:07 PM »
From a friend of mine:
 
"The parts book is weird and shows Chrysler Newports could take either the 5.5" or 6.5" wheels, all the Chrysler 300s should take only the 5.5" wheels and the station wagons and New Yorkers all should have the 6.5" wheels.  I can't imagine why any Newport should take a wider wheel than any 300???"

The more I look at the wheels, the more I think the 5.5" wheels are correct.  They are Kelsey Hayes stamped wheels with a date stamp of 8 64 which works with my car's September, '64 build date. The 6.5" wheels do not appear to be Kelsey Hayes and they are stamped "MADE IN THE USA 14X65 KNT A9" and "MADE IN THE USA 14X65 KNT F8".

General Tech / Two different sized wheels
« on: January 10, 2010, 10:30:42 AM »
I've got a 1965 Chrysler 300 Convertible, 383, Factory Air. I took my wheels down to the tire shop to have the tires dismounted so I can blast and paint the wheels. It turns out I've got two different size wheels. My car was all original before I restored it and I have no reason to doubt all four wheels to be factory originals. I've got (2) 14x6.5 and (2) 14x5.5. Is this normal? What do you guys think? The FSM lists both sizes but there is no listing for two different sized wheels on the same car.

Well it took me 1.5 hours to do it, but I have successfully extracted the bezels from my power wondow switches, all 6 of them.  They are off to the plater this morning and hopefully I will be able to reassemble without and incident.

Has anyone successfully removed the bezels from the Power Window Switches from a '65 Chrysler for rechroming?

Kinda reminds me of the VOAB.  At least yours doesn't need 1/4's. 

 
Yeah, this car had zero rust; solid as a rock.  I guess sitting in the desert since 1980 helped with something.

General Tech / Rear Seat Belt Mounting Locations - 1965 Chrysler
« on: November 20, 2009, 02:49:26 PM »
I was wondering if anyone could help me out.  I've got a '65 300 'vert which did not come with rear belts but I was wanting to add them.  I've got a set of factory belts and hardware but I'm not sure where to drill.  There is a set of two round dimples on the passenger's side and driver's side floor board just below the seat beack.  There is also a single dimple on the inner fender well on both the passenger's and driver's side.  Which dimples do I drill out for the mounting hardware?  If would be great if someone had pics.

Glad to help, and I have actually learned quite a bit looking at your photos as well.
 
 
Yep, that's what this hobby is all about, helping each other out.
 
As for the driving, man, these cars drive nice.  Don't they?  I don't car how long the restoration took, or how much money was spent, cars were made to drive.  I can't wait until this thing is finished and the wife and I can drop the top and head up to Santa Barbara via PCH.

I went with Steer and Gear to rebuild/shim the unit out of my '65 300 and I couldn't be happier.  They also rebuilt my coupler and also supplied me with the correct "hockey puck" joint.

I'm just waiting for it to be done.  Then I'll know what mine is supposed to look like.

 
Thanks Dan.  Don't forget, it's you and your car that have helped me with quite a few of the details.  I've been waiting 2 1/2 years for it to be done!

Where did you get the "cardboard" trim pieces for the trunk sides?

God Bless you for saving a great car!!... that is a fabulous job!! Do you know of Don Rook in Arkansas? He is the man for 300 parts. Looks like you don't need much now though.

 
Thanks!  I've never heard of Don.  Does he have a website?

Here are some before and after shots of my restoration.  I estimate the restoration will be complete by January.  All that's really left to do is install the glass and power window regulators (vents too), button up the interior and install 15" Magnum 500's.  I took the car all the way down to a rolling shell and restored/replaced virtually everything.  This car is hard to find parts for.  Luckily, it was 99% complete to start.
