Automotif CCCXLIX...

1965 Chrysler 300L in Formal Black

This was the last of Chrysler's letter-series 300's, the "Banker's Hot Rod".

For 1965 the only engine option was the 413 cubic inch "Golden Lion" Chrysler V8 with a single 4bbl, 10.1:1 compression, and dual exhaust, rated at 360 SAE gross bhp. The standard transmission was a 3-speed Torqueflite automatic, and the Hurst-shifted 4-speed manual, like the one in this car, was a no-cost option.
