Factory original interior - This Chrysler is a super cool 1968 MOPAR cruiser! Price to sell!

BODY: 100% factory sheet metal – quarter panels, fenders doors and truck floor are original to the car. All trim moldings are present. Original “300” only wheelcovers. Original paint on all body panels. Front grille assembly is very nice – no cracks or damage. Frame is very straight and solid.

INTERIOR: One of the coolest things about this 1968 300 is its 100% original interior. Super nice dash, bench seats, door panels, headliner, seat belts, and steering wheel (no cracks!). The interior is in amazing original condition. All dash gauges and AM radio work. Carpet will need to be replaced due to aging.

MECHANICALS: The car is essentially still factory stock. The car was stored for over 20+ years and needed some work to get it started including:

  • · New starter motor
  • · New Battery Cables (1968 C-Body Reproduction cables)
  • · New Carter AVS carb with electric choke
  • · New Fuel Pump
  • · Tune up with new spark cables

WHAT IT NEEDS:

This car has been in the same family since 1968.

Mechanicals - The 440 engine starts up easily and runs. It does blow oil out the exhaust. My mechanic told me the valve umbrella caps are dried out due to age hence the oil blow-by. The engine is the factory the installed 440 motor and very fixable by any competent mechanic. The 727 -B transmission is in great shape and shifts well. Typical for a car that has been in long term storage the AC needs charging. Tires have good thread but are old. Vinyl top needs replacement. Overall this is a very solid and complete car. Hagerty Insurance values this Chrysler between $6,700 - $9,800 in fair to good condition.

Body – Paint is 50+ years old and all original. It still looks presentable but fresh paint would definitely be a big plus. The good news here is there is no hidden past body work. The driver’s side floor pan has rust through and needs repair. ( C2C drivers and passenger floor pans are included with the car). Rear quarters need some minor rust repair behind the rear wheels. Trunk pan needs work. (C2C trunk pan is included).
