Jeff - As I recall the manual window car was quite rough and neglected when my dad purchased it in 1980's. My dad had five 300-Hurst cars over several years, and three of them were quite neglected and rough. To answer your question, I do not know if it was the magazine car? I do remember my dad pointing out the manual windows, and when sitting in the driver seat, the manual windows was obviously a bad design oversight. I do not recall options on the various 300-H cars he owned. During that era, I would come home from college or come visit my folks and boom, more 300-H cars, various Imperials and other Mopars out in the back yard or garage. Many Mopars came and went like the wind. Except we did have one really nice Hurst that was in our family from about 1978 until 2005.Continued from: 300 Hurst broadcast sheet - velour interior?...Help please

Is it possible that your father actually owned the magazine car? Do you recall any of the other options on the car?
The magazine test car was light on options:
Rim Blow wheel
3 speed wipers (majority of Hursts have 2 speed)
Power seat (possibly seats)
Back in the 1980's and 90's when my dad had several of these cars, we were not into researching and documenting the VINS, data plates etc, and I do not have documentation on any of them except, I probably still have the VIN number from the one I sold in 2005.
