Our fans seem to like the Obscure Muscle Car Garage Posts that appear each and every Friday, and look what I found currently for sale on Craigslist… This is one of less than 500 1970 Chrysler 300 H Coupes produced (though the listing has stated that only 385 were built) and this one is a Barn Find. I’ll get to the price later, but I have to ask this: Desirable or not?
According to the ALL CAPS LISTING:
1970 CHRYSLER 300 HURST…ONLY 385 BUILT…THIS IS PROBABLY THE NICEST MOST ORIGINAL 1970 CHRYSLER 300 HURST LEFT IN THE WORLD…((((ALL ORIGINAL )))) ALL NUMBERS MATCH….FIBERGLASS HOOD ANS TRUNK WITH AIR FOILER……I AM 2ND OWNER..((((FOR ABOUT 30 YEARS))) (((ORIGINAL PAINT IN GOOD CONDITION )))) HAS 56,000 ORIG MILES…DRIVES SUPER GREAT AND HAS FACTORY AIR CONDITIONG…..ALSO ORIG TIRES..((((SPECIAL PAINTED WHEELS CAME WITH CAR AND I HAVE EXTRA)))) .NO RUST CAR…((((( ORGINAL CALIF CAR ))))).LEATHER UPHOL…..LOTS OF LITERATURE AND COLLECTION OF EXTRA PARTS…ALL GO WITH CAR .NONE SOLD….WITHOUT CAR…..THIS CAR IS MORE RARE THAN A 1970 PLYMOUTH SUPERBIRD OR 1969 DODGE DAYTONA AND PROBABLY WORTH MORE…YOU JUST CANT FIND THEN OR SEE THEM…IF YOU WANT ONE RARE CAR THIS IS IT….
Yes it is indeed rare and wonderful, but it will never reach the value heights that the aforementioned Superbird, or Daytona have because it was never intended to be anything but a Cruiser. Therefore, the asking price of $99,999 is pure Crackpipe (To borrow a phrase from our own esteemed Graverobber) but how much should it be going for? See the listing here, and tell me what you think.
