1970 Chrysler 300 Convertible

 Nineteen-seventy was really the last fling year for the three-hundred. It was the last year you could order a convertible and Chrysler had one last shot at making the marquee special with a limited run of Hurst modified specials. This was the second year of the distinctive fuselage styling.

 CHRYSLER 300 SERIES - (V-8) - The 300 facelift of the 1969 model paralleled the styling updates seen in the other 1970 Chryslers. Disappearing headlights were retained in the 300 Series. A 300 emblem was placed in the center of the grill, which had black vertical bars. Two thin rectangular moldings were placed on either side of the center of the grille and were painted in red with bright edges.

Tail lamp design treatments differed from other 1970 models. On 300s they ran unobstructed, across the rear indented area of the bumper. Standard equipment included body accent stripes, all-vinyl or cloth and vinyl bucket seats and Torqueflite automatic transmission.

This was the last year for the Chrysler convertible. Other features found on all 1970 Chrysler 300s included heavy-duty battery; cleaner air system; turn signal indicator lamps; ash receiver lights; carpeting; front and rear foam padded seats carpeted lower door trim panels; rear ash trays; wraparound bumpers and full wheel covers. The Three-Hundred designation, in bright chrome block letters, appeared at the right-hand corner of the trunk lid.

 VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NUMBERS: The numbering system and code locations were the same as for previous models with the second symbol changed to an 'M' to indicate Chrysler 300. The code 'T' engine was standard equipment.
