We need a 70 Chrysler 300/Hurst model!
Posted by MoparDeke on Tuesday, May 11, 2004 9:29 AM
Let's all get united and petition for a model of the ultimate in luxo-muscle! The 300/Hurst was available with the 440 TNT 375HP and 727 auto and special fiberglass hood and rear deck/fender treatment, as well as the traditional white and gold paint scheme.

If a proper C-body chassis is done in scale, could a 70-71 Sport Fury GT be farbehind? How about 70-74 Fury cop cars? And the famous (ir infamous) 74 Dodge Monaco from The Blue Brothers!Cool

I saw a 1970 300/Hurst at a car show on Long Island last year, it was the first time I ever saw one in person. The Chrysler was about 3 inches longer than my 1970 Chevy Caprice 2DR which is a tad bit over 17' ! Truly a land yacht Big Smile

Yep, I agree. I thought it was a 69 though.
God said it. I believe it. That settles it!

Chrysler changed to the "fuselage" design in 1969 on the whole C-body line, but the limited edition 300/Hurst was a 1970 model only.

The same basic car was unchanged from 1969 through 1971 (with minor grille and taillight changes) after which the 300 model was dropped. Standard 300s were available with the 383 2bbl, 383 4 bbl and the 440 4bbl non Hi Perf. I have seen some 70 300s with the TNT 440, but they must have been rare. My favorite 300 would be the 4 door hardtop with the 440-4. Talk about a sleeper!Big Smile

Yes guys the
70 Chrysler 300/Hurst was a very special limited edition model the gold and white paint job was the only one it could be had with.... if I recall corectly "Collectible Automobile" did a feature article on these very special cars in 1986 ... while I was in Phoenix

I have been lucky enough to see three unrestored originals in nice condition... all in Idaho in last 30 years...

Production involved only about 5000 of these they indeed were based off the Hi performance Fury...

There was rumored to be one original convertible made with the 300/Hurst option 440's for this model were standard engine with the six pack option being frequently ordered ....2 of the ones I saw were six pack cars other was a 4-bbl ....

a very few were rumored to have the Hemi! now that would be a wild car...

That would be great! But I wouldn't hold my breath on seeing it in plastic, resin maybe, but not plastic. But it would be great!
