1970→1970 Chrysler 300 Hurst

This model was specially built by Hurst Performance Products, but sold through official Chrysler dealers. It was used to promote the Hurst shifter but also featured many of Chrysler’s performance pieces including the big-block 440 V-8 and special wheels.

Costing $4,400 when new, only 500 Hardtops were built including just one Convertible.
