Well, I just returned from hot Grass Valley, CA to see that 300B. It needs absolutely a complete
interior. Most of the outside chrome looks good, but it is covered with
dust and I didn’t try to shine it up. It started right up and idled
well, but trying to run up the rpm caused a lot of white smoke and some light
back-fire. I took
photos. I believe
the owner feels it is
worth at least $9,000 because she looked at my Price Guide and read the prices
and the description of the conditions. Personally, I think it’s a
very straight body with no visible rust. Brake pedal goes to the floor
and stays there. Ignition wiring
needs replacing. I could not move the car because of what was in the way.
I forgot to even try the transmission. I could not pull out the ash
tray! It had dual rear antennas. Left one is missing.
Anyway, you can
look at the photos I took and
go from there by emailing me privately.
