    I own a '62 Chrysler 300 "Sport" Convertible with the three-speed manual transmission, 413 option, no P.S. or P.B. but does have the "Sure-Grip' rear end. Chrysler archives sent me the punch card to confirm some information. I have located no one that can give actual confirmed numbers. I have...

    Exhaust fumes

    Same issues with one of my cars. I would suggest as a diagnosis tool to purchase a roll of weatherstripping foam (for home use) for $2 with one side with an adhesive strip. Put the adhesive side onto the existing weatherstrip. This would make it thicker and if it works to prove you need new...

    Shifter Boot & Pedals

    I think if you go a Google/Ebay search you will find one. I had an impossible time finding one for my '62 300 Sport Convertible. Since my transmission came from the truck division I thought it might interchange with some other vehicle. Take a picture of yours, number of screw holes and...

    Convertible top boot cover

    A experienced upholstery person should have numerous books to look at and compare plus be able to answer your concerns. If you cannot find one check and join any car clubs nearby and see if they can help you.

    Convertible pump fluid?

    I use ATF on my '62 300 convertible. Easier to clean up and won't eat your paint up. Open the fill screw slowly and listen for air escaping.

    65 Imperial - Why rust here?

    Check inside the trunk. Sometimes the metal is not coated and rust is coming from the inside out.

    Found - 61 300G Disassembled - What's it worth?

    If you have the ability to do the work yourself and deal on it (20k max.). If you have to pay someone to complete it forget it. I know of one that was sold a couple years ago. He started at 80k but I don't know what was the final price.

    Exhaust joint midway back...why is it there?

    Yes, I looked at that system and others to compare. Must add shipping plus not up to the exhaust manifold. Plus t-pipes should come down a bite of an angle. Plus the same guy did my car last time so he has decades of experience.

    Exhaust joint midway back...why is it there?

    My '69 Grand Prix tail pipes are rotting out. The local exhaust guy custom shop did it 25 years ago. His estimate for spring 2019 is $350 aluminized stock type dual mufflers w/o resonators. Ask around other car dealers and/or enthusiasts for a reputable custom shop.
