I'm the second owner of a 1971 Chrysler 300 named Alvah. She's named after her 1st owner, who at the young age of 98 decided not to drive any longer.

I've spent a lot of time on here reading the threads and have gotten a lot of help from all of you guys, and I finally decided I should share my experiences (wins and losses) in the hopes of paying it forward.

Welcome - it looks to be B5 or B7 blue. Some photos of the car are always welcome and even one of the body code plate so we have some idea of the options. Those 71 300s are my favorite of the fuselage cars, and I have a bunch of them and always like seeing new ones - and especially since yours has a white vinyl top and interior it appears!

You are correct, white vinyl top and interior. The interior is in pretty good shape. The rimblow wheel was pretty sad, so I replaced it with an aftermarket, and some minor issues with the drivers side carpet. I'll try to post some pictures on here soon.

Turquoise. Perfect option set, almost (power windows would have been great). White top and interior. Buddy seat. ‘71. What’s not to love?

Your prolonged rollout before actual pictures is torture. Let me know if you ever want to sell it!

The only interior issues I have are some carpet wear under the drivers side floor mat, Rim blow wheel fell apart, clock doesn't work, radio worked when I got it but won't tune in to a station anymore.
