CHRYSLER 300 SERIES - (V-8) - The 300 Series had the same overall styling as lower priced Newports. The designation Three-Hundred was spelled out, with chrome block letters, on the rear quarter panels. A grille with a variation of traditional Chrysler 300 themes was placed within the heavily chromed bumper/grille surround. It had a blacked-out insert, against, which was set a cross bar combination with a circular medallion in its center. Hidden headlights were featured again and the parking lamps were tucked in each corner. The rear deck featured a thin, horizontal panel with blacked-out finish, long horizontal tail lamps and 300 lettering at its center. Standard equipment included the following additions or variations from Newport specifications: torqueflite automatic transmission; heavy-duty battery; turn signal indicator lights; power operated concealed headlamps; triple body accent stripes; front and rear foam seat cushions; bench seat with fold-down center arm rest in hardtops; vinyl bucket seats with center cushion arm rest in convertibles and the 350 horsepower 440 cubic inch four-barrel V-8.
