The Lap of Luxury

If you recall, the Chrysler C-300 was eesentially a luxury car (the Chrysler New Yorker/Imperial), with high-performance drivtrain added to the package. That luxury is easy to see here. A wide, comfortable, electrically adjusted bench seat; lots of leg room; power windows; the works. The interior has been kept stock, except for the substituion of fine leather for factory vynl.

A tachometer was added and affixed to the steering column so it could be easily read and not interfere with the drivers view of the stock gauge sets.

This car can seat six adults in comfort.

While the windows retain the original crank handles, they are all electric powered.

The Dash has been kept stock, except for the addition of a small panel below the center portion for some additional guages (oil temp, water temp, transmission temp). On the right is a good view of the flip down radio face.

The shifter on the C-300 is on the dash (left). Because the new 727 Torqueflite has a different shift pattern, we had to make a new shift plate from scratch and then chrome to look like the original. The Original only had four positions (from top to bottom), R-N-D-L. The new transmission is also equipped with a Gear Vendors overdrive.
