Seller's Description:  

1960 Chrysler Windsor 4 door Hardtop

  • condition: fair
  • cylinders: 8 cylinders
  • paint color: black

1960 Chrysler Windsor 4 door hard top. Push button trans, 383 RB, non AC, black with silver interior. A real joy to drive. Classic American road car. Highway cruises just fine, rides and handles like a comfortable sofa, and likely the longest fins of any car, stretching from the fender bone to the taillight bone.
Honest complete car, all original local car, and runs well. Unrestored original condition. Clean title. No joy rides. Cash in person sale only. As-is, its an old classic car.
I have owned it for a couple years and have driven it a bit, done a fair amount of maintenance, but am ready to move on to something else. I bought it from the son of the original owner. Other than me the car hasn’t been on the road for 15 years or so.
Most of the work I have done was neglected maintenance and rejuvenation after sitting for 15 years or so. Pack bearings, brakes, fluids, flushes, gaskets, etc. With exhaust and an interior I wouldn't have any issue driving this daily, and have driven it up to 200 miles in a day... Assuming you have a bit of know how and experience with old cars. The thing really is pretty simple and easy to work on, even compared to the later post-64 Mopars and has a lot of unique and neat features that are rarely seen. For example, the car is an automatic that can be push started! A unique feature intentionally designed into the Chrysler cars of this era. Parts are available, but not typically at your local auto parts stores. There are quite a few new parts on the car, rebuilt locally with premium US parts whenever possible.
Body: paint appears almost all original. Only one hole, about quarter sized passenger side wheel well. The trunk floor needs patched due to the original owner putting carpet in the trunk. Trunk cross member is there but there are holes. Trunk extensions are solid. Floors are solid. Doors are solid. The rest of the car is great, especially for these Forward Look cars. See pictures, a couple spots of paint chips with minor surface rust.
Drivetrain: original 383 engine and accessories. New gas tank. Included is the original 2v and distributor. It has new head gaskets and an Edelbrock AVS2 carb and performer Rpm intake. MSD distributor. Trans shifts well, was told that the trans was rebuilt in the 90s. In my opinion, it runs well. It doesn’t have any real leaks. Needs exhaust. When I resealed the top end the cylinders and heads were serviceable. Small amount of blowby, does not smoke. I completely flushed the block and radiator, and I haven't been able to get it to overheat or go over 195 even in the recent weather.
Brakes/suspension: dual master cylinder upgrade, brakes work great. Suspension is fine, steers straight and drives very well.
Interior: needs a few things here, recover seats, carpet is worn, dash pad is cracked. Heat works. No leaks. No front seat belts, as it came from Chrysler. Door panels are good. Dome gauge cluster lights up and works fine. Needs new speedometer cable.
Brake lights, headlights turn signals, horn and wipers work fine.
Its a neat old car that still needs some attention in a couple areas. Not in a hurry to sell. This would be an excellent driving project.
