Accubuilt, a long-time maker of hearses and stretch limos, will put the Chrysler 300 under the knife in Lima, Ohio. Half a foot of extra length gives back seat passengers an extra 10.2 cu-ft of passenger volume. Unlike other aftermarket conversions, this one will be sold in Chrysler dealerships. Both the regular Chrysler 300 with a 250-hp 3.5-liter V-6 and the muscular 300C with a 340-hp 5.7-liter V-8 are eligible for the conversion. Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but we expect it to start in the mid-$30,000 range when it goes on sale in the Fall of 2006.

(Although I cannot find photos, here is some information on the SRT Design package for 2007.)

SRT design Group option, includes:

-350 HP 5.7L V8

-Performance independent front and load-leveling rear with height control

-Performance 9-Land steering gear

-20" SRT forged, ultra-brite, aluminum wheels with 245/45WR20 all-season performance tires

-Performance exhaust system

-High-speed engine controller

-Trunklid spoiler

-Body-color door handles

-Leather-wrapped, performance front seats perforated with Preferred Suede® inserts

-Power adjustable pedals

-Leather-wrapped steering wheel with perforated leather upper trim

-Shift knob with Satin Silver accent

6 extra inches........mmmmmmmmmmm

Hello, Ocn.

It looks better stretched. I'm not fan of the brick-like design, but this makes it more palatable and will hopefully eliminate the desire to build that gaudy, silly Imperial concept.

Oh, so it's an aftermarket conversion. I thought it was going to be done in-house.

if its aftermarket it will be better built than at a Chrysler factory

i suppose the 6 extra inches will make it weight like 4500 pounds now in R/T AWD trim.

I'll bet you a dollar to a donut they build that Imperial. It fits their strategy of moving the brand upmarket & with some 300s selling north of 40 grand to some really dumb shmucks, I doubt they'll have a problem selling them. As they say, there's no accounting for taste.

I liked the 300, but thought it looked too squat.

The wheelbase stretch fixes that.

But, why isn't Chrysler doing it in-house?

It's probably more cost effective to outsource it..same with how the work on some convertibles are outsourced to vendors like ASC, Karmann, etc..

Accubilt of Lima, OH is the premier hearse manufacturing company in the US. It owns Superior, Miller-Meteor, Sayers & Scovill, and the Eureka name.

High quality coaches it builds.
