1966 Chrysler 300 2dr HT Coupe with 35800 actual miles
This highly optioned 1966 300 is in “rarely seen” condition. Not only is this car in incredible condition, aside from a single repaint, it is completely original with just 35800 miles since new. These big Chrysler cruisers are far too expensive to restore. Parts can be hard to locate and they just dont have the value of a Road Runner or Charger. Luckily, this car doesnt need any restoring at all. It is beautiful from top to bottom. In addition, this is a rare 1966 300 in that the 440 was not standard equipment until 67. Most came with the standard 383ci engine. Here we have a very rare 440ci TNT engine with a factory 4bbl carburetor, dual snorkel air cleaner and dual exhaust. Yes, a true 440-TNT? Whats better? This car has options rarely seen in the day for even a New Yorker. We are in Imperial territory here. This highly optioned car includes such options as power windows, power drivers seat, reclining passenger seat, factory AM-FM radio (FM? in a 66?), factory AC and more. It all works too! The clock does not work. Bucket Seats are black leather. There are a few minor surface cracks to the drivers seat but no tares at all. Keep in mind, they are original and 50 years old. No dash cracks at all. The dash is perfect. All gauges are perfectly clear and work as they should. The chrome buttons still shine like new. Fender mounted directional light up and work as they should. The car easily passes the required NYS annual inspection. The factory center console shows as good as new yet is the original factory console complete with working vacuum gauge. Interior and exterior lighting work as well.
The entire body rust free and pin straight. All body panels and floors are 100% original. There are no dings or dents and we could not locate any bondo on any of the body panels. Quarter panels are beautifully straight which is amazing considering they are nearly a mile long. Chrome is shiny, bright and clean with no dings or dents. The rear light bezels show very minor pitting but no rust. All trim, front to back is in excellent condition.
The engine is an incredibly rare matching numbers 440ci TNT 365hp 4bbl with factory dual snorkel air cleaner, dual exhaust and factory front DISC BRAKES, another very rare option. The engine is very clean but not detailed so not to affect its originality. The hubcaps are also original and display “Disc Brakes” right on them. We’ve never seen these before.
As shown in the photos, the original Certicard is still with the car right where the factory left it. The photos also show the Speedo and vacuum gauge working in motion. This is truely a special Chrysler that needs to be in a Chrysler collector’s garage.
