Bill Codner's 300F convertible is shown as it appeared in a recent wedding party. He was honored by his good friend Steve who asked him to use his car in his wedding party. In describing the event, Bill said, "We rode twenty minutes from the church to the reception with the roof down and Steve and Amy enjoyed every minute of it."
A BIT OF HISTORY OF THE CAR
Bill found the car in 1969 as a total disaster. It had been parked for many years and was sinking in mud over its bumpers. There was no engine or transmission in the car. He was able to purchase an engine and transmission from a 300F hardtop as part of the deal. Over the years, it has painstakingly been brought back to its original pristine glory. It has taken numerous awards over the years. One that Bill is particularly proud of is a plaque given at the Wildwood, NJ annual car show.His car was one of 25 winners out of over 1500 entrees. Of the 25, only two were non-modified. Most were lead sleds and street rods. That his 300F stood out among such meticulous craftsmanship is a tribute to his restoration as well as the stunning design that Chrysler produced in 1960. It now stands proud, far above the field of mud 29 years ago.
