This car’s owner had a lifelong dream to own a Chrysler with the rare Sonoramic Commando dual carb option that he had seen at a car show in his youth. With the real “Letter Cars” being rare and commanding high prices, he opted to turn a Newport Convertible into a 300C clone. He spent over a decade collecting the parts to make it happen, and at this point has the powertrain done. He has all the interior parts too but is waiting for reproduction upholstery to finish it out.
