History Of the Chrysler Three Hundred Series - 1964



 
1964 Chrysler 300 ConvertibleNineteen sixty-four was a record sales year for the three-hundred letter series in spite of the fact that the standard engine was now a 360hp 413cid, the same as in the non-letter three-hundred. A cross-ram inducted 390 horsepower 413cid V-8 was optional.
A mid-year special in 1964 was the Silver 300. This was only available as a 2-door hardtop and featured special metallic silver paint, a vinyl canopy roof and included a custom bucket-seat interior with a reclining passenger seat. The Silver 300 could be ordered with four-speed manual transmission or torqueflite automatic.
Happily the convertible returned to the letter-car lineup after taking a break in nineteen sixty-three.
