Described in period literature as “Chrysler’s fiery-spirited full-size sports car,” the 1964 Chrysler 300-K was targeted towards discerning buyers looking for a blend of performance, luxury and style. A significant reduction in price (nearly 22-percent) from the previous year’s 300-J helped to drive sales, and Chrysler produced 3,022 two-door hardtops for the model year, as well as 625 new-for-1964 convertibles. This 1964 Chrysler 300-K two-door hardtop, for sale on Hemmings.com, comes with day-two touches like an Offenhauser intake manifold supporting a pair of four-barrel carburetors, as well as turbine-style wheels that likely won’t be to everyone’s liking (thankfully, the original wheels and hubcaps are available). The 413 V-8 has been bored .030 over, and with the Offy intake likely makes a few ponies more than the originally rated 390 horsepower. Though not a concours contender, this Chrysler would make an entertaining weekend driver capable of showing more than a few the beauty of Virgil Exner’s rear styling. From the seller’s description:
