I bought this car last year intending to use it more as my summer driver this year.  Didn't get the time I wanted to do that but I recently drove it about 1000 miles over a two week period and it ran just fine.  I did encounter two problems however: 1) When the gas gauge reads 1/8 full the tank is empty.  Guess how I found out? and 2) a rear brake started to act up and I had it checked out.  Was fortunate enough to find an old school mechanic who found the problem right away.  Whoever worked on the rear brakes last neglected to reinstall the cable for the self-adjusters.  One shoe on one side had dislodged slightly and was rubbing at the top of the drum near the wheel cylinder. which was developing into an uneven braking.  This was repaired on the spot with NEW Brake Shoes for the rear. Shaved the brake drums. and installed new self-adjusters and related hardware.  I also had them replace the Master Cylinder with a NEW one as it had started to leak out the rear seal a little bit.  I also added a quart of oil after I got home.  Had a lot of fun driving it (I owned a '64 300 and a 300K years ago) and brought back nice memories.  
As you can see by the photos the car is straight.  It is pretty clean overall.  This much is obvious that has been done:  It was repainted in the original color. which paint is now showing cracks/hazing in some spots.  There are nicks and chips and a few scratches in the  paint surface.  All the trim is there and in good shape and the chrome pieces and gas door between the tail lights is in very nice shape which is much better than usual for the '64's as these pieces often pitted rather badly (but I suspect you already know this).  The power top does work and the boot is in place.  The top material is in good condition--I do not know for certain if it is original.  I have another '64 Conv which almost certainly does have the original top and the material is the same.  There are a few cracks in the piping around the edge of the top but no damage to it: it should last for quite awhile yet.  The plastic window is not damaged. I've had it zipped out when the top was down. but it is yellowing.  You can still see through OK though.  Inside. the seat inserts have been replaced on the bucket seats and there is one set of inserts for the back seat that come with the car.  The rear seat is cracked/split on the driver's side seat. but otherwise in good shape.  All else is very presentable in my opinion.  The dash pad is also very good: you know these had a tendency to shrink and buckle.  This has very minor shrinkage--barely noticeable and suspect the car never sat in the sun.  As I mentioned. the car was repainted at some point. and I suspect at that time had some body work done.  There was work done on the passenger side rocker panel. and that has popped out a little on the underside adjacent to the rear seat area (it does not show unless you look underneath) as well as some surface rust behind the rear wheel. same side. at the very bottom of the quarter panel.  There was probably a leak into the trunk at some point for the floor has been cleaned and sprayed with a black paint (should be body color). and is apparent that some scale was removed.  The engine compartment looks good and the only thing I see missing is a washer bag.  
The car has PW. PS. PB. PTop. A/C. Console and Floor Shift. Clock. AM Radio. Back-up Lights. Reclining Passenger Seat and I suppose a few other small options like Driver side remote mirror and Parking Brake warning light.  The bucket seats were standard in the 300. but the console and floor shift were options. and not all that common (but standard in the 300K).  The windows all work. and all the glass is good.  PS works OK. PB now work better.  Top works OK but I only used it twice.  The A/C system works--the clutch kicks in and blower works as it should--but at best the air was only cool.  No problems with the shifter.  Clock does not work but it is accurate twice a day.  The AM radio works fine--I got to listen to a lot of talk radio while on my trip.  As you probably know. the 383 cu in 2bbl was standard for the 300 series with a 413 cu in as an option.  This car does not have the 413!  Sorry. It has however. been fitted with dual exhaust (which does not appear to be very old) which did come with the 413 in the 300K.  I'm not sure if it could be had with the 383 in '64.  It does look nice though. when viewing the rear of the car.
A history does come with the car.  The original warranty book was maintained by the first owner and the sale to the second owner is also recorded in the warranty book.  The second owner kept a notepad with date. mileage and work performed (for example: radiator redone. front-end rebuilt. oil changes and maintenance work. etc).  There are a few receipts from the third owner. and I've already listed what I've needed to do.   I am the fourth owner.  The car originally sold in Missouri.  Included with the car is a Sales Brochure. the Owners Manual. the Warranty Book. a data & VIN breakdown supplied by Chrysler Corp to the last owner along with a photo-copy of pertinent sales info for the '64's (a "birth certificate" if  you will). and as indicated. any info and receipts related to the ownership of the car.
Presently. the horn does not work and the emergency brake cable let loose at the foot pedal one time I applied it and I've not had either fixed.  Also note that the wheel covers are not for a '64.  I believe they are for a '67. but they are what came with the car when I bought it.  This is a nice driving car and good looker--I guess what they call a 20-footer because of the  paint.  It is well equipped for a 300 series.  According to Classic Car Database. there were 1401 300 Convertibles. 625 300K convertibles and 2176 Newport convertibles.  
Legal Stuff:  No Warranties. No Guarantees. etc. . etc. . etc.  You are more than welcome to come look at the car or send a representative to do so.  Of course a non-refundable deposit is due at the time the bidding ends if you have a winning bid.  Ebay/Pay-Pal get their cut when the clock runs out.  So if you have a winning bid. please deposit $250. 00 via PayPal (yep. just $250 -- I don't need $500 or $1000 or $2000.  I expect you to be an honorable person -- that's how this system works).  Then send the rest via Cashiers/Bank check. which will have to clear before car is released.  Shipping is your concern. but I'll plan to be available at time of pick-up to assist.
