You could get Canadian-built 300 2-door hardtops with the Newport/Windsor style taillights, or the US-style. 300 convertibles were US-style only. I have pictures of a couple of them somewhere (which I took myself). Of course, this can also be confirmed by looking at the Canadian 1966 Chrysler brochure, which I have done previously.
I have read it ssid that the "sport coupe" could not be had with AC..
Kinda the same thinking as no hemi cars got AC
66 was interesting year at Chrysler. First year for street hemi. First year of the non letter 300. First year for 440.
Chrysler seriously considered the street hemi in the 300 sport coupe.
I now have 2 J code 66 300's.
If I could find a sponsor I would swap a 426 in one of them
I'm sure that is not the case, you could get A/C in a '66 300 2-door hardtop, whether it had the 383-4bbl or the 440. 1966 was not the first year for the non-letter 300. 1965 was the last year for the letter-model 300, but you could also get a non-letter 300 then also. 1962 was the first year for the non-letter 300 in the US. Chrysler considered continuing the letter-model 300 into 1966 and putting a Hemi in the 1966 Chrysler 300M.
