You're looking at the ultimate mix of power, luxury, and rarity. This 1970 Chrysler 300 Hurst Edition is one of only about 485 built that year, and so it has been restored to the kind of caliber worthy of this much Detroit metal.
They didn't come much lower, wider, or longer than the 1970 Chrysler 300. These are true legendary boulevard royalty, and the Hurst Edition is the king amongst kings. It's because they took such a commanding coupe and gave it a serious dose of attitude. It starts with Spinnaker White paint with satin gold accents made famous on other Hurst cars, like the Olds. And this looks terrific today thanks to a huge investment in a high-quality restoration. They even got the full striping package correct – right down to the accents within the cool hide-away headlights. Plus, the Hurst packaging includes a special lightweight fiberglass hood with functional hood scoop and dual hood latches. Out back even more weight was saved with a fiberglass trunk, and that also made it possible to have that beautifully integrated spoiler. So it's a rare and distinctive package that's properly presented, right down to the full color-matched Rallye wheels on classic Goodyear Polyglas tires.
This was the most expensive Chrysler in the lineup for 1970, and the interior instantly reminds you. All Hurst cars were given a button-top tan leather interior more suited to the up-market Imperial brand, and the restoration made sure this one still lives up to that standard today. The seats, door panels, carpeting, dash, and much more feels like new. The huge size of the coupe means there is an amazing amount of room to get comfortable in the front and rear. And fold-down armrests for both rows provide an individual level of luxury. Plus, the front seats power adjust to your ideal position. This one even has provisions for nice features like power windows and R134a air conditioning. As you slip behind the classic steering wheel and gaze across the very correct dash, this gives you a time capsule-like feeling that few cars can deliver today.
The restoration budget included the engine bay, and you know that from the moment you pop the hood. The bold orange block, matching valve covers, big TNT air topper, correct factory decals, and painted firewall all combine for a correct and powerful presentation. This era-correct 440-cubic-inch V8 is suspected to be original. The big block was topped with a four-barrel carburetor in this application, and 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. But don't just listen to the sound; follow its path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see the freshness of this full restoration. The Torqueflite A727 three-speed automatic transmission is stout enough to handle this big block machine with ease. And the power steering and front disc brakes complete this convenient driving package.
A classic of this caliber needs the right paperwork to back it all up, and so the sale comes with the broadcast sheet, dealer invoice, and maintenance records. This was a car reserved for the performance elite in 1970, and that desirability has only grown over time. So if you're ready for something rare and unique, call today!
