This 1970 Chrysler 300 Hurst Edition is a coupe perfectly placed at performance, luxury, rarity, and originality. So as you look over everything from survivor quality paint, to the plush bucket seat interior you'll realize this is an impressive and thorough classic coupe.
No other car conveyed performance and size quite like the 1970 Chrysler 300. The hidden headlight front end gave it the intimidation factor freight train, and it truly has the length of a locomotive. So it's no wonder Hurst partnered with Chrysler for this very special edition. You are looking at one of only about 485 examples, and likely few reaming this original. For example, the Spinnaker White paint with satin gold accents is a legendary Hurst combo, and the majority of it seen here is believed to be what was applied in Detroit nearly half a century ago. So while you might find one out there with a nicer finish, it only gets to be original once and that means a lot to many of us. More than just low build numbers and distinct paint, the total Hurst package was a true standout. It included a special lightweight fiberglass hood with functional hood scoop and dual hood latches. The fiberglass trunk allowed for a beautifully integrated spoiler. And there's so much intricate pinstriping that even the Rallye wheels got it, too!
This was the most expensive Chrysler in the lineup for 1970, and the interior is an instant reminder with its level of comfort and amenities. All Hurst cars were given a button-top tan leather interior more suited to the up-market Imperial brand. The extra length of coupe meant plenty of room to stretch out in the rear. Plus, the two bucket seats up front are plush and wide. Add in the center console and power adjustment, and there is a true sense of individual luxury. You'll love how the power windows can easily show off the hardtop profile, and the working factory AM radio is a very cool period-correct piece. There are even provisions for upgraded R134a air conditioning.
The engine bay looks so honest because this is the original 440 cubic-inch engine. If you like the survivor-style cars, then the look of the TNT air topper, inner fender walls, valve covers, and much more will really have you ready to show off its worn-in presentation. But you can also tell by the wires and hoses that this rare Mopar has been treated with the right respect over the years. Not only do you get the biggest of the RB big blocks, but also this V8 was topped with a four-barrel carburetor. In fact, the Hurst cars were given an upgrade in power over the rest of the premium 300 line. That way this big cruiser could live up to its powerful appearance, and the sweet sound of the dual exhaust delivers on this promise, too. The Torqueflite A727 three-speed automatic transmission is stout enough to handle this big block machine with ease. And the power steering, front disc brakes, and wide Cooper Cobra tires complete this convenient driving package.
Rare, desirable, and absolutely distinct the 1970 Chrysler 300-H is a true collector's car, and it will be hard to find one more original or priced better. So don't let this one slip away. Call today!!!
