Re: [Chrysler300] Looking for parts! C-300

If the 'choke tube cover' is that woven fiberglass stuff, it has been readily available in restoration specialties or through Corvette parts dealers as old 'vettes used it as well.

Hi Josh,

I will have to look to make sure, but I think I have enough of the choke tube cover for you.

Hello Gentleman!

  I've been working on VIN# 1001 (1955 C300) every night for about a month now.  I'm getting everything in order since the car hasn't run in over 30 years.  I've disassembled, cleaned, scrubbed and soaked everything on the engine to remove 30 years of rust, Tennessee mud and grime.  I'm very close.  The original factory pumps are rebuilt and ready to go. All the valves and rings are now unstuck, moving freely and re-soaked.  What residue was in the engine has been cleaned and everything was coated in fresh MMO or motor oil.  All gaskets have been replaced and torqued down to factory spec.  I've still got a huge amount of work left, but it's moving along and of course I'm enjoying it.

  I've got a couple needs and wondered if anyone might be able to point me in the right direction???

  I need to find these:


1.) Rear 300 trunk emblem (not repro)

2.) Fan Shroud

3.) Spark plug washers (metal rings around grommets)

4.) Passenger side exhaust manifold

1.) Proper spark plug wire set

2.) Correct material for choke tube cover

3.) Carb base gaskets

    Does anyone have any suggestions here?
