The "Silver 300 Package", package code 329, was a spring trim package offered on both the 300 and 300K models in the two door hardtop body style only.  The package consisted of silver paint, a color offered on lesser Chrysler products but not available for the full size Chrysler until this package was offered; black interior color; and a canopy vinyl top with roof molding, previously offered as standard equipment only on the New Yorker Salon.  Chrysler built 2,152 Silver 300's and 255 Silver 300K's.  A genuine Silver 300 is verified on the body data plate with PNT code "229", with 2 indicating Silver Pewter paint and 9 indicating package code 329, as well as code Z5 for the roof canopy molding.  This package was developed as a way to use up the excess inventory of vinyl tops and roof moldings before the end of the model year and subsequent body change for 1965, when the sales of the New Yorker Salon failed to reach expectations.
This is what I see looking at the pictures.  This appears to be a 300 hardtop with Silver 300 package, one of 2,152 built.  Standard 383 2-barrel engine.  Pushbutton automatic.  I cannot tell if crank windows or power windows.  Power brakes with Kelsey Hayes booster (optional on 300).  Factory Air car with compressor removed and original A/C radiator replaced with an non-A/C radiator.  Optional tilt steering wheel.  Optional AM search-tune (7-button) tube radio.  The car has the standard black vinyl interior used in all 300 and 300K's and appears to have been patched, with certain panels replaced and good original material reused.  The seat inserts are original in the rear, but have been replaced in the front, indicated by the silver stars still present on the rear seats, but missing on the front seats.
Please let me know if you have any other questions or comments.
