MODEL OVERVIEWAt a total length of over 18.5 feet, it was also one of the largest 2 door coupes ever produced. At that time, the Hurst Company not only manufactured shifters and other performance enhancing products, it also produced car concepts based on regular production cars.
There is a Chrysler Corporation letter from 1972, that states that only 485 were produced. There are a few theories out there as to why there were only 485 (some say 500) cars built, including that approval came only after the regular 1970 Chryslers were in production so they had to play catch up to get the Hursts’ made. Additionally, Chrysler thought Hurst would promote it and Hurst assumed Chrysler would. Therefore, most dealers were unaware of the model, until one showed up at their lot.
The cars went down the assembly line as two door hardtops in Spinnaker-White and they had Imperial leather interiors in “Saddle” color installed. They were then sent to Warminster, PA, where Hurst did the conversions. Hurst replaced the sheetmetal hood and trunk lid with fiberglass parts. They also installed fiberglass rear fender end caps and painted the hood, trunk, and beltline streak in “Satin Tan”. They placed a brown and orange decal stripe where the Satin Tan met the Imperial White as well as on the lower body side.
The fiberglass hood had a non-functional power bulge scoop (with a “300-H” emblem on either side) and functional recessed twist locks. The decklid featured an incorporated rear spoiler. The regular 300 grille with hidden headlights had orange stripes instead of instead of red.
The “Saddle” leather interior was the same that came optional in the 1970 Imperial LeBaron two-door hardtops. The front saw bucket seats with center seat cushion. The drivers’ seat was power actuated, while the passenger seat could recline. The rest of the interior was the regular Chrysler 300 dress-up. Column-shift was standard. A Tilt-and-Telescope steering wheel was another option, as was air conditioning.
