Re: [Chrysler300] 30,000 hellcats vs. 300X

John and all;
Easy (?) but pricey fix to this dilemma.
Buy a nice Plane Jane 300, like a 62, and install modern suspension, 4 wheel discs, a Hellcat crate engine, and a 6 speed stick shift or latest Automatic. May be able to do this for about the cost of a new  Dodge Hellcat.
My son restores Muscle cars, 'cuda's, Challengers and Chargers, but keeps them all stock.
His best friend however, does just that, restro-rods them. Gorgeous, but bad  ass cars.
He is a world class painter, has had many correctly restored customer cars in National Mags, but does this to his personal cars.
Fast and fun, but very safe to tour in.
Best of both worlds.

Just saw that they have made 30,000 of the Hellcats over past three years. . , and just saw one go 9.28 at 150 with a 4 speed. Not a demon, a modified hellcat. Hard to  believe –really hard to believe --they have sold so many . ….that car has outsold all our 300’s put together. Good move for Chrysler, despite the cynics . and they have sold about 7000 Hellcat engine 4 dr Chargers


The reason I was looking , was I was musing, ---where can you get a 300 today, ???  that is more like what our cars were. The present one is more like a 4 door Cadillac, just not as fast as the quickest Cadillac –which tempted me in the coupe a few years back…even went to Cad dealer to look, but this Mopar guy could not do that. . I for one would be interested in a “real 300” with a hellcat engine. And a 2dr coupe body, off the present one,  too. Make it exclusive like the first ones were …Somehow the present one , as sold makes me think of a checker taxi, or Stude lark. . Even the latest track Lincoln is on attracts . And the super Tesla. We need a real 300…Bar is raised to 700 hp.   Chrysler 700? About 80k?

Ray Jones. Y'all come on down an see us. Ya hear?
