C is for COOL!

This C-300 had less than 30,000 original miles on it when it came to us, and had been "restored" once before. Because of that restoration, many of the stainless steel trim pieces could not be refinished a second time without ruining them (previous grinding and polishing had redered the steel too thin). While trying to find individual replacement pieces that could be restored, we found there were few available, and that they were way too expensive (not to mention in questionable condition). Finally we ended up purchasing two whole donor cars, an Imperial and a Windsor of the same year (the bodies and much of the trim are the same accross these models). So, what we have here, might be called a Chrysler C-300 Imperial Windsor.

On the left is the Imperial, the Windsor is on the right. Where stainless steel trim on these cars matched the C-300, and was in better condition, it was removed and restored.

The paint used was PPG's Chrysler Tango Red, which matches the factory color spec.
