Though some of this information was gained through common
knowledge of the vehicle and its components, much other information was
contributed to this page by:
Found the info. in the December, 1989 issue of Mopar
Muscle. The information was later reported by a visitor to this web page,
to have been researched by one: Dale Burkhardt whom I'm told may possibly
be the authority on information regarding the 1979 Chrysler 300.
who runs a cool web page (?) for Chrysler products.
Larry also pointed out that all 1979 Chrysler 300s were
made in Windsor, hence the "R" in the SS22L9R portion of the V.I.N.
with whom I've had many e-mail exchanges about the '79,
and who also sent me a wealth of information, along with photos of his
and a neighbor's from Canada.
has contributed a great a deal of effort to submitting fender tags, V.I.N.s,
and info on 1979 Chrysler 300 Cordobas which have existed at one time or another.
In addition to actual "dead" or "living" cars, he has submitted a number of cars
from which he recorded the V.I.N. and/or fender tag data, prior to the creation
of this web site. Greg is a true Scout for having kept an eye out for these
rare gems, be it any that he's owned, or of cars owned by others, or even those
salvageable or rotting in Canada's bone yards.
In addition to owning a 1979 Chrysler 300 in great condition,
Larry has submitted a wealth of photos and other information,
including copies of original stickers and broadcast sheet from his
own car, and a couple of others.
As of 6/1999, Chris's entry tops the list as his car, with the
proof of fender shading mailed directly to me, has the lowest
V.I.N. on the page. Chris has submitted some interesting photos
of original items he maintains in pristine condition.
See his link listed above. From there, you'll find a link
to other toys of his, including a beautiful blue 1978 Dodge Magnum,

Regarding this page . .
Before work began on this page, the Internet was extensively
searched for pages dedicated to the 1979 Chrysler 300 car. None were found.
A good portion of the data above originated from visitors to this web page,
who in turn, credited Dale Burkhardt, an expert in this field, as the source
of their data. I've recently ( 8-11-98 ) spoken with Dale, and was previously
e-mailed by John Veatch, regarding this page.
I'd like to thank all contributors ( of photos, and information),
to this page, thus far, and those to come. I don't work for, or get anything
of value from the Chrysler Coporation, or from anyone else, for the efforts
applied to these pages, except, of course, for the pleasure that its results
has brought me thus far.
Like the 1979 Chrysler 300s, perhaps the current Chrysler 300M will
need a dedicated page some day, to help revive the focus it currently enjoys.
