Re: [Chrysler300] Rebodying and Hidden Numbers.



Hi Wayne,

Your remarks about market changes is a valid one.

The current market seems to have a new direction towards resto-mods.

Cars that look like the originals but have all modern drive train, brakes,
wheels etc.

Saw a 1958? Corvette with new corvette underpinnings and motor etc. sell for
more than an original @ BJ Palm Springs.

Made up 1971 Roadrunner made from combining 2 Satellite & Roadrunner bodies
done up with a new Hemi and all modern suspension etc sell for S72,000.

The C frame etc. that started this thread would be a fine candidate for a
1957 C Resto-Mod.

Maybe the rest of the group can fill in the options.

Tony

Ps Please don¹t mess with good originals though.

I've read just about everything on rebodying and hidden numbers posted on
this list this time and on this and others several other times past.  And
you know what?  I don't much care what the outcome of the discussion is.

If the potential market value of restoring a Letter Car hulk exceeds the
cost, it will get done.  If it does not it will get parted out or scrapped.
That changes with the market.  What is both original and authentic?  The
only thing that is original AND authentic is the way the car left the
factory and that will NEVER happen again REGARDLESS of how hard the restorer
tries or the scammer tries.

How important are hidden numbers really?  Only important during legal
investigations.  The car won't run better or worse if the 300C frame number
does not match the motor.  Yes, I would prefer to know the car was never
disassembled or damaged to such a degree that the frame had to be changed.

If you want to know where the hidden number is on the 300Cs, I've been
publishing that info for over 10 years in the 300C Handbook sold through
club publications and something like 250 of the books have been sold.

Wayne
