Sometimes when a vintage auto has ties to somebody well-known in its past, things can go from ordinary to extraordinary on an otherwise average car, but this 1970 Chrysler 300 Convertible here on eBay is so far above average in just about every aspect that you may end up forgetting who the full-size droptop once belonged to and stop thinking about what celebrity passengers may have sat inside over the years.
This one’s a beauty, and although the Chrysler spent most of its life in California it’s now in the New England area of Lynnfield, Massachusetts, with bidding up to $16,400 at present but still shy of the reserve.
The seller doesn’t tell us how long he’s owned the Chrysler or exactly how long it was in Al’s hands, nor does he mention if any of the paint outside is still original. However, we do get a good assortment of photos to look at, and not only does the body appear close to immaculate but the finish itself looks just about as good.
The only exterior flaw the seller points out is that the bumpers are showing a bit of patina, and even that seems like a relatively minor issue.
Components on the inside are overall nicely preserved, with maybe a couple of cracks in the dash if you look closely but the seat material and even the roof canvas seem to be in fine condition.
All of the power accessories are stated as functioning properly, with one modern add-on being a touchscreen with voice recognition and cell phone capabilities, plus there’s even a backup camera to help maneuver the eighteen-and-a-half footer in reverse.
I feel confident the price is going to continue escalating upward, but with the reserve unknown it does make me curious how much our readers think this beautiful convertible may end up exchanging hands for. Any ideas?
