There is a 1965 Chrysler 300 convertible for sale on Facebook right now. It is a 383 with a 3-speed column shift manual transmission. I have a couple questions; 1.) How many 1965 300 convertibles were made with the 383/3-speed manual combo? Is this the only one ever made? I know I have never seen another one. 2.) Does anyone have a picture of the floor shifter that would have been used in a 1965 300 (non letter car) with a 4-speed transmission?

I can answer one of those. The knob has been replaced...

If it's not one of one, I bet it's incredibly rare. Recommend: Buy!
