RE: [Chrysler300] Pont-à-Mousson Black F Convertible



Andy,

I haven’t any knowledge to share about Don Petty, but regarding your J my records only go back to March 1990 and he owned at that point in time.  Gloria Moon might have some earlier history on the car if it was known to the Club.  I presume that you have the microfiche build record which would show the dealer it was shipped to from the factory; if not, Mark Obermann can provide that.

Hey, does anyone know more about Don Petty? The previous owner of my 300J bought it from Don Petty and I would love get more history about Don and my car if possible. All I know is that it was the only 300J he had. He was such good friends with Dee Cameron that he sold it to Dee. Dee had an oyster grey one for his wedding and wanted another.Thanks in advance,AndySent from my T-Mobile 4G LTE device------ Original message------From: kmaniak@xxxxxxx [Chrysler300]Date: Fri, Feb 7, 2020 10:55 AMTo: awrdoc@xxxxxxxxx;chrysler300@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx;Cc: Subject:Re: [Chrysler300] Pont-à-Mousson Black F Convertible
 

A little history on Don Petty.  Over 30 years ago, Don Petty owned what I believe was the only other surviving 300F special of the original 7.  It was a white hardtop.  Now that the black 300F special convertible has appeared in his possession, the white 300F hardtop has since disappeared.  Coincidence?  I think not.

Hi To All,

In this month’s Hemmings Bible there is a 2 page spread re a 4 speed Pont-à-Mousson black F convertible. 

I searched the Hemmings site and found the full original article from 2017. 

A CHRYSLER 300F CONVERTIBLE PACKING A RARE FOUR-SPEED MANUAL GEARBOXBy Jeff Koch from the June 2017 issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines

https://www.hemmings.com/blog/article/headless-horsepower-1960-chrysler-300f/ ;

The car was owned by Don Petty, brother of Lee Petty. 

Previously, there was a white F GT owned by Tom Turner?

Some say the Petty car was made up?

Whatever the case, the article is quite informative. 

Enjoy reading about the details of the GT 300 racing legends and how Chrysler got around the rules by hiding the fact that the GTs were “factory supported.”
