[Chrysler300] Chrysler 300 #001 / The Brody Family


  Hello Club!

  So it's been over 3 years since I bought '55 Chrysler #1001 from Steve
McCloud's family.  I've done a ton of leg work.  I've been shocked by how
helpful everyone has been.  Of course Vicki Wood is awesome, NASCAR has
stepped up and helped me go through tons of old negatives, Richard Petty has
provided information, Chrysler has spent several days manually going through
old records, papers and so on.  The list really is too long.

  My biggest surprise has been this club though.  John Lazenby and Marshall
Goodknight have answered every dumb question I've asked them. Although Mr.
Graefen is an ex-member, him and Owen Grigg have been priceless too.  Gloria
Moon sent me ORIGINAL 30 year old letters about this car from Steve.  Gil
Cunningham spent several hours sharing information and going over info
relevant to my car. This is why the club is so valuable. Every question I've
asked has been answered by at least 5 of you.  I can't thank you guys

  My biggest surprise has come from the Brody family in Norco.  About a
month ago I met Ken and Brad Brody.  What great guys.  Talk about a
dedicated Chrysler 300 family. 

  To make a long story short, the Brody's offered to come up and get the car
back on the road.  What would've taken me about 6 months took them 2 days.
I've NEVER seen two guys work SO hard, non-stop for so long without one
single complaint. Mind you it was 108 degrees on day one.  I'm no mechanic,
but I've done my share of engine and transmission work.  Watching these guys
is mesmerizing.  They take it to a whole new level.  When Ken recites the
correct rear seal part number from memory... or Brad gives the correct page
number from memory out of the 1955 Chrysler factory manual... it's
impressive.  The best part is they are just completely hands-on and

  After a nearly 40 year slumber, Ken Brody fired up Lee Petty's 331 Hemi.
With Brad working on the carbs the car came to life again.  It took a lot of
hard work and prep.  They're very impressive gentlemen!  

  I just wanted to give an update.  This club has been a great resource to
find great people. I appreciate everyone's help... Especially the Brodys who
took it to a whole new level.

  Watching Ken fire the very first 300 was fitting and pretty special. He
was the right guy to do it.  Cool stuff! 

  Best regards,

  Rancho Cucamonga, CA
