History & ConditionThis 1974 Chrysler was purchased new in Indiana, where it remained with the original owners until September 2018, when I purchased it. I have given the Chrysler a refresh with the goal of making it ready for cruises, shows, and summer weekend trips. I have since inherited another classic car, and don't have time for both. So, I have decided to place the Chrysler up for sale.
ExteriorThe Deep Sherwood Green Metallic paint appears to be 100% original. There are imperfections, rock chips, etc. but the car presents very nicely. The original pin striping could be redone. The original vinyl roof is in very good condition. There is a tiny spot of surface rust on the driver side front door near the bottom, easy fix. All door jambs, hinges, door bottoms, etc. are rock solid and super clean. The chrome is bright and shiny. All exterior lights work perfectly. The underbody is very clean.When I purchased the car, it still had its original wiper blades, and sported only its second set of tires. I installed new wiper blades, and replaced the tires for safety reasons including the spare. I kept the factory spare tire as well. Prior to the new tires being installed, I had all 5 wheels stripped and repainted gloss black. Under my ownership, the car has never seen salt, snow, or even rain, and has always been garaged and kept clean.
InteriorThe interior is 100% original and is in excellent condition and very clean. The seats are very comfortable and are in great shape. The dashboard looks like new and has no cracks.I had custom floor mats made in a complimentary green. The lights, hood mounted turn signal indicators, horn, wipers, radio, heat, defrost, blower motor, etc. work as they should.A/C does not work - system appears complete, may just need a recharge. The driver side mirror remote is missing (replacements available on eBay) but the mirror is manually adjustable from the outside and I do have the interior trim piece. The driver side seat belt sticks sometimes, probably from lack of use. The headliner and sun visors are in great shape.

MechanicalThe engine bay is clean. The air cleaner assembly has been restored and a new air filter installed. The valve covers have been stripped, primed, and painted in Chrysler blue, and new valve cover gaskets installed. The exhaust manifolds have been ceramic coated by Jet Hot.The engine runs smooth and strong. There are a couple drips. No smoke. The carburetor has been rebuilt. A full tune up has been done including new fuel filter. New thermostat and coolant. New transmission mount. New negative battery cable. The Chrysler rides beautifully and floats down the road, and handles well. A new idler arm has been installed.
Rock solid! You would be hard pressed to find a cleaner or more spacious trunk! The spare tire, factory jack, lug wrench, and instructions are present. The trunk liner is clean and in good condition.
