Following description from the seller website. What an incredible machine! Note rare 4-speed tranny...

Chrysler Corporation built nine 300F cars with hand-assembled 400 horsepower motors employing short ram induction, cast iron headers and a special camshaft. First factory use of an alternator. To this was attached a fully synchronized Pont-a-Mousson 4-speed transmission as available in Facel Vega. Final drive was a 2.93 gear set with Sure-Grip limited slip differential. 3.31 Sure-Grip currently in the car. Six of those cars competed at Daytona and were the six fastest production cars ever at Daytona Speed Week. Chrysler called the construction of these cars "The Gran Turismo Project".

The car available here in Texas is one completed post Daytona. It was special ordered through gaming magnate William Harrah's Chrysler Plymouth dealership in Reno, Nevada. First owner was Andy Drumm, Jr. of Fallon, Nevada who was a very large highway construction company owner and sportsman of renown.

This car received a bare metal respray in 1992 using base /clear. Photos available; this car has never known rust. The motor had been rebuilt just prior to Andy's passing in 1970 and has seen very little mileage since. Front seats recovered, rears remain factory original. Of the nine Special GTs built only one had factory air conditioning and this is the car; a true one-of-one built.

The car is totally authentic, thoroughly documented, full known ownership record, includes multiple files of related literature, research papers, factory photos etc. Two Pont-a-Mousson trans for spares included. Original 2.93 Sure-Grip included. Air cleaner assembly signed by Burton Bouwkamp, chief engineer of the GT project who is also available for correspondence. Fully drivable. Custom car cover included.

This is the absolute zenith of all 300 Letter Car production. THIS IS THE LEGEND.

Located in central Texas. Will coordinate with you for transportation. Private party ownership.

$225,000 US dollars

I'd take this over a convertible all day long. Fantastic with the stick box and AC. Do you accept credit cards?!
