    1970 Chryslet 300 4 door hardtop.
    50 000 miles
    Need a windshield and the hood and fender have scratches. A winter shelter fell on the car. Engine and transmission is out of the car right now. I didn't saw any rust when I checked it. It's going to be parted out soon. What would be a good price? Thanks!

    It's certainly not a parts car. BUY IT!

    Engine and trans are out of the car. Is the engine locked up? 1800

    Definitely not a parts car!

    Where is the engine and trans? My opinion, $1,200 as a roller, $5,000 with the engine and trans.

    And the windshield is a big problem? Not a lot of 300s here. Will a windshield from other Chrysler model fit?

    Pretty sure the 4 Dr hardtops all use the same one.

    The windshields are available brand new. Clean up the engine, and engine bay before reinstalling, and get that beauty back on the road!

    Agree with all above. If that hidden headlight grill is operating, it's worth $1000 alone. I'd offer $1200 without the motor and trans and be prepared to go up from there. Depending on the condition of the quarters and trunk, you might want to offer a lot more. If he will sell engine and trans with the car, maybe start at $2500 and be prepared to go up $500-$1000.

    C-bodies are like the old Lays potato chip commercial, "No one can eat just one," except with c-bodies, "No one can buy just one"

    Sad to think how many c-bodies have been engine "harvested". I remember in the 90's seeing several (including a gorgeous blue '70 T&C wagon) for sale in our local auto trader. They'd show up for sale again a few months later sans engine, trans, and rear end. Used to piss me off. I hope you can re-unite engine and car. That's a sweet ride that must be saved.

    You came to the wrong folks to talk you out of buying an old Chrysler! Perfect reproduction seat covers are available from legendary. Just look at how clean that firewall is!

    The only nitpicky things I notice are the stitching down the center of the buddy seat, painted license plate bracket, black hinges, reinforcement bar's? And radiator support. That's really very little, even the carpet looks good! I'd start at 2500 for the complete car.
