Stubs, the description is in French.

The car kinda speaks for itself

Damn, this is a nice one...four door, be damned! Single-pot master, original hose clamps, and a hardtop. Nice.

Is that a Canadian thing that the rear end looks like a Newport, not a 300. Tail lights etc.
Yes, Canadian-built '66 300s shared a lot of their body with the Chrysler Windsor, which was the Canadian equivalent of the Newport. Basically a Windsor/Newport body with a 300 front clip.

Only the 4-door cars though. the two door cars had the US style tail lights.
Canada had a Windsor, 300, New Yorker and T&C model line-up - no Saratoga so the 4-door 300 had the same content as the US Saratoga

Not quite, there were Canadian-built 300 2-door hardtops as well. In 1966, the US-built 300 2-door hardtop and convertible with the wrap-around taillights could be ordered in Canada as the "300 Sport".

There was no Saratoga model in the US after 1960. The name continued for a few more years in Canada. (In fact, my dad once owned a 1962 Saratoga 4-door hardtop.) The 1965 Canadian-built 300s were supposedly called "Saratoga 300". They are called that in the 1965 brochure, but there is no Saratoga badging on them as far as I know, just 300 badging.

The Canadian 1966 Chryco Parts Book still lists the Canadian 300 as a "Saratoga 300" but there is no mention of the "Saratoga" name in the '66 brochure and definitely no Saratoga badging on the cars.

Lots of cars had 1L engines back in the sixties, they just weren't built in the US. I had 65 and 68 Mini Coopers with 998CC engines.

Plus the same engines, 383 4 barrel standard or 440 TNT optional.

'66 Windsor had 383 2-bbl standard, 383 4-bbl or 440 TNT optional. Same options as the Newport. If you're referring to the Canada vs US-built 300, then yes you are correct.

I didn't want to say anything before and detract from Stubs' rant, but since you've brought it up again, the ad actually said "-1L". Yes, negative-one litre. Likely the seller didn't enter any value for engine size when creating the ad and the default value used in the back-end database was -1. So it's not the seller's fault at all.

The Canadian-built ‘66 300 two-door hardtop also used the ‘65 roof. I didn’t realize that all-original Canadian ‘66 engines were painted red. Blue secondary ignition wires are “all-original”? I doubt it. Great colors and condition. Too bad about the fire escapes.
