Re: [Chrysler300] PAINT





My 300F is the reference car for that model year for the 300 Club, and is an original 29K mile car.  I bought the car from the first owner, Roland Funk, many years ago now.  But when I received the car, Roland told me some things he did to make it more to his liking.  First, he carpeted the trunk floor (a car of that stature should not have a rubber mat he reasoned, so he fixed it!), second, he chromed the air cleaner housings and the valve cover breather cap and the power steering pump cap and he painted the front face of the radiator support black since he said he hated seeing white behind the beautiful grille when he bought it.  Since he was a painter at a Buick dealership, he knew what he was doing.  So given his story at least, it supports that the radiator support was not painted black at the factory - at least on his car.

Hey, don't drag me into this. My car's paint is not original and the engine compartment was restored. My opinion is the 60-62 cars that aren't black should have the front of their radiator supports sloppily painted black, so you don't see light body color through the grille. I did paint mine black. Noel takes and submits dozens of pictures of 300s at our meets, but tends to miss mine. Probably because it's a driver and he sees it around at events near home fairly regularly.

Looking back at photos of several Meets, I'm seeing mostly body color for the '62 300s.
 
For the '60 and '61 300 cars, I'm seeing mostly fully black painted radiator supports. This includes one all-original Alaskan White 300F coupe from NY, that drove to both our Mystic and Macungie Meets. Gil Cunningham also has the full radiator support in his blue 300F convertible painted black - looking back at Chattanooga. Can't tell by my car, which has it painted black, but then Andy Mikonis' G coupe has it body color Alaskan White.
