1964 Chrysler 300K 4 Speed Coupe in Rosewood
VIN # 8443113945

1964 was the first year Chrysler offered a 4 speed transmission as a regular production feature (was the 1960 4 speed anything but special order?) lfq
It is estimated that only 82 300Ks were equipped with the 4 speed. To date only 14 have been found. Assembled September 30, 1963, this car appears to be the second 4 speed K built. lside
Equipped with power driver's seat, power windows, tinted glass, AMFM with reverberator, passenger side rear view mirror, and 3.23 SureGrip, this car was sold new in Colorado and remained there until 2002. lside1
The exterior is the unusual Rosewood, Chrysler code 00, Ditzler paint code 50635. The interior is white vinyl and the front seats have the optional head rests. lre
Note the interesting location of the shifter. Unlike the 1965 version where the shifter is centered in the console, the 64 places the Hurst shift lever off to the side. int
4 speed ratios:
First 2.60/1
Second 1.91/1
Third 1.39/1
Fourth 1.00/1
Reverse: 2.58/1

4 speed cars received a tachometer in the console. Automatic transmission cars had a "Performance Indicator" vacuum gauge.
This is the original 413 engine, rated at 360 horsepower with a single Carter AFB carburetor. engine1
This engine has the 300J style headers. This engine would not have been originally equipped with these headers as they were used on 300J and ram 300K only. header
