Cohort Pic(k) of the Day: 1962 Chrysler 300 “Stripper”

Checking out my friend Paul’s Flickr page, I see there’s quite a few other interesting shots. This ’62 Chrysler caught my attention, as it’s sporting a 300 grille but is devoid of all other brightwork/trim, even the windshield surround. It comes across more like a stripper Plymouth.

At first I thought it might be a base-trim Newport with a 300 grille, but all Newports came with some trim on the sides, and the Chrysler script on a black background in that area on the front fender between the bumper and that crease. Someone really wanted a stealth Chrysler.
