1970 Chrysler 300

The 1970 Chrysler 300 Series retained the disappearing headlights introduced in prior years, a 300 emblem found in the center of the grille, and new taillight design treatments. They shared a 440 cubic-inch V8 engine with the New Yorker Series and offered 350 horsepower. Inside was an all-vinyl or cloth interior and a TorqueFlite automatic transmission. Body styles including a 4-door hardtop coupe, 4-door hardtop sedan, and convertible. This would be the final year for the convertible body style on the 300 Series.

A special high-performance 300-H was available, built by the Hurst Performance Corp. These special 2-door models had a factory price of $5,845 and just 485 examples were sold. They had saddle color leather bucket seats, a fiberglass power bulge hood with a functional air scoop, rotary hood latches, and special paint in Spinnaker white. They had Satin Tan color accents and special striping. Under the hood was a 440 CID TNT engine. Other mechanical improvements included a heavy-duty suspension and a heavy-duty batter.
