    79 300 Restoration

    I just read on the B-body forum, that 300’s with tilt wheel used the 2 spoke wheel like yours, non-tilt used the 3 spoke. I don’t know if it’s a fact though. Also, I see there is a 1979 Chrysler 300 Owners Group page on Facebook. Likely lots of info there.

    79 300 Restoration

    The ‘79 300’s that both my father and uncle had, were factory equipped with a matching, red leather steering wheel cover that was stitched on. I remember my dad put a cigarette burn on his. It seems like it was a 3-spoke wheel, with bars on the spokes for the horn. The literature at the time...

    The biggest load of bs car advice, fearing for the future of auto knowledge

    Drive off in a cold car, in freezing temperatures while your windows frost over, and you can’t see where your going. That will shorten the life of the car, and possibly the driver. There’s no shortage of idiots out there.

    My ‘62 300 model! Anniversary gift

    The ‘62 300 is a favorite of mine also. A very cool car with great styling inside and out. My uncle had one when I was a kid in the 60’s. One of my all time favorites.

    Midnight Charger/Monaco SS

    That Monaco was 4 Grand. I paid 6Grand for my new ‘79 road runner, that I still own. I’ve had this car 43 years. Don’t know where the time went ....

    Midnight Charger/Monaco SS

    So, I guess these are actually B-Bodies, but I’m wondering if anyone here owns one of these, or has actually seen them. Appearance packages, but just odd, especially the Monaco. I got this poster from a dealer back in ‘76 ?

    Texas auction of a Mopar Hoard.

    Does anyone know what the 63 Imperial 2door sold for? Black, lot #74 I think. Looked to be in fairly good shape, I can’t find any info. Sent an e-mail to the auction company, no reply on looking for ‘sold’ prices. Had to work, couldn’t monitor the auction. Thanks.

    1st safety air bag car

    A neighbor of ours had one of those when they were new. He explained to us how it worked, and we thought he, and the whole idea, sounded pretty nutty.

    1965 pace car restoration

    I’ve heard those cars fix themselves if you love them enough. Judging by the license plate number, I’m guessing it’s going to be red.

    Lean Burn Carb Idle Problems-Help Needed

    I have a lean burn set up with a Thermoquad on my 79 road runner. I had similar issues. Bad accelerator pump. Rebuilt the carb, and the hard hot start issue was caused by a bad thermostatic choke control. It still had some ‘spring’ to it, but not like a new one. If you can’t find one for the...
