[Chrysler300] The OTHER 300-F 4-speed convertible . . . a can of worms, I'm sure.





Group,

I know Val Jeffers just inquired about the Turner 300-F 4 speed convertible, but this is about the other one . . .

I was in Phoenix a few years ago and met Don Petty, close cousin and longtime friend of Richard Petty, and well-known on the Forwardlook List as a dependable vendor of Mopar and other parts.  He has been the owner of a wrecking yard, now a classic car wrecking yard, for many years.  He has dozens of Mopars, including Letter Car convertibles and hardtops.

Don Petty has a 4-speed 300-F convertible he has owned for many years.

What is the background of his car? He makes some convincing claims about the authenticity of his car - the water-cooled exhaust manifolds, the carbs, the Pont-A-Mousson transmission, the special console bezel & shift lever, etc., items that would have taken quite a bit of effort to obtain, even in 1960.  He said he bought the car without the block, but with all the bolt-on parts in the trunk and the transmission and bellhousing in place, and did a complete restoration years ago.  He has no doubt whatsoever that his car is an authentic, factory-built 4-speed car.

I've never seen or heard of this car being discussed anywhere, and Don told me that there are Mopar people who doubt that his car is authentic.

Discuss!

John
