RE: [Chrysler300] 1955 C-300 Convertible for sale--claimed to be an original.

Just some thoughts on this car:
If this was actually built for an auto show, wouldn't it be tricked out with all the options ? This is a low optioned car.
If this were a convertible, wouldn't it have the X-member in the frame rails ? I don't see one.
Anyone else notice a 12V battery ? Also, wiring harness is frayed. Likely original just covered with electrical tape. That's probably why he has a 12V. Otherwise, it would crank forever until the 6V battery died.
Funny that the club hasn't heard anything about a C300 convertible until now. And he's claiming that there were three of them ?!?!?!
This may be one of the Glassel conversions done in the 80s.
A lotta bovine scatiology, IMHO.

More at:               “Lou” has a video in it.  San Martin is south of San Jose on 101.  82 miles from Brentwood.  Lots of pictures that look accurate but none of the VIN tag or body plate.


Excerpt from the description:  This Chrysler C-300 currently resides in San Martin, California, and has been owned by the seller for over 30 years. This example is thought to be one of three C-300 convertibles built for the 1955 automobile premieres in Paris, New York, and Detroit. The current owner has sent letters to Chrysler to verify the origins of this car, but unfortunately Chrysler opted not to help out in the process.


The game is on.
