Interesting conversion for the 300 in the famous Hurst white/gold combo. I think its a beauty!
I wish FCA would come out with cool versions like this for the 300. They do it for the Challenger/Charger. Why not the 300 to spur interest in the car ?
Modern day Hurst/Olds
Or 300 Hurst:

I really love the way that one looks. It's now the wallpaper on my desktop.
There was a 300C Heritage Edition a while back. It paid homage to the real 1957 300C letter car, like color availability and badging, etc.

I think that more people would identify the Hurst with the Olds 442 than with the Chrysler 300.
Not a fan at all....... I love 300 special editions but this model does nothing for me.
He’s got fish is his rims! Maybe that’s his dinner!
Unfortunately I've been there.
The car is a tribute to the 1970 Chrysler 300 Hurst.
I know what it was trying to do......I just dont like it.....simply my opinion.....Chrysler has done may special edition 300's .......just dont like this one. It looks gaudy to me.
You are welcome to your opinion.
To be clear, this vehicle is not sanctioned by Chrysler nor was it done by Chrysler. The car is purely aftermarket and is being marketed to a different buyer than a typical Chrysler special edition.
While we're talking about Hurst Chrysler 300s, they also built a few convertibles that broke all the second generation Hemi rules.
The G2 Hemi was not available in a Chrysler brand car.
These cars were full size, G2 Hemis were not supposed to be available in the full size cars.
The G2 Hemi was not available with air conditioning.
The G2 Hemi was not supposed to be available with a trailer towing package.
I don't know if there is anyone around that would remember the project in detail. From what I understand, the cars came from the factory with the Hemi, air and trailer towing package. They were used in a Hurst traveling promotion.
There's also the letters GSS, I wonder if it might be also a nod to Mr. Norm's 1968 Dart GSS where they got the 440 engine under the hood?
How about lighting knob shifters
....uhhhhh, Where is the Hurst shifter???
Isn't that the key component Hurst was known for? Yet they left in the factory rotary shifter...Total Fail IMO!!!
Probably because removing a rotary sifter for a traditional snifter would be hard as hell. What would you like to see them do, add a hurst shift sticker on the dial?
One convertible was built, it was a 440 4bbl.
502 440 4 bbl ones were built
I don’t know of any factory installed Hemi cars. There have been many rumors of a six pack cars. I know of a couple 1970 Sport Fury’s that were 6 BBL cars
