Here’s a classic car restorer’s dream! This 1968 Chrysler 300 has been in my family for over 50 years. My grandfather and then my father kept this classic for special occasions - always garage kept, no winter driving. Sadly, I’m not able to carry on the tradition since my garage is just too small. I would really like to see someone who truly appreciates survivor original classic cars return this car to all its glory and make that 440 c.i. engine purr again. No rust, no dents, excellent interior (even the headliner!), no evident drips and the original hubcaps are in the trunk (Forgive my grandfather for the spoke hubcaps.) Last week, I installed a new battery and fuel filter before trying to start it (ran last summer, engine turns smoothly - feel free to crank it for a second to verify), only to find the carburetor weeping fuel onto the intake. I couldn’t back it out for a bath and high-quality photographs - apologies for that. I borrowed a sales ad from Chrysler to help your imagination. I know the carburetor needs to be rebuilt, and I see my grandfather bypassed the heater core, which means it probably leaks. All five aging tires hold air but should be replaced before driving. Other than that, I believe this classic car can be made show-ready with just the standard TLC every classic car deserves. Serious inquiries only. Sold as-is, where-is. Cash only. No holds or trades. If you see this ad, it’s available.
 
Too bad you can't see the car, a little steep for a non running car with a sentimental evaluation.
68 and 69 300's are the best with those hidaway lights!
 
The awkward single headrest. He’s doing himself and others a disservice by not at least dragging it out for a bath and better pics.

Too steep for that car and condition. For 14K I'd expect a perfectly running car, new tires, and perfect paint and even then might think still too high.
 
We can forgive Grandpa for the spoke hubcaps - except we can't even see them.
It's priced as if the carb work and other TLC to make it show-worthy is already done.
 
But we don't know the actual selling price.
Seller might've had a handful of $3000 clowns and then 1 guy that actually showed up and made a dependable offer of $8000 or so?
 
Coulda had two guys fighting over it too for 15. We likely will never know. Fourteen was a good asking price / starting point
