CHRYSLER 300 SERIES - (V-8) - The 300 facelift of the 1969 model paralleled the styling updates seen in the other 1970 Chryslers. Disappearing headlights were retained in the 300 Series. A 300 emblem was placed in the center of the grille, which had black vertical bars. Two. thin rectangular moldings were placed on either side of the center of the grille and were painted in red with bright edges. Tail lamp design treatments differed from other 1970 models. On 300s they ran unobstructed, across the rear indented area of the bumper. Standard equipment included body accent stripes, all-vinyl or cloth and vinyl bucket seats and Torqueflite automatic transmission. This was the last year for the Chrysler convertible.
