The 1970 Chrysler 300-Hurst was not a return of the fabled letter-series 300s, but a specially produced non-letter 300 hardtop built by Hurst Performance Products and sold through Chrysler dealers.

Features included special road wheels, wider-than-stock tires, the 375-bhp version of Chrysler's big-block 440 V-8, heavy-duty suspension, and, of course, a Hurst shifter for the standard Torque Flite automatic. The exterior was dressed up by a snazzy gold and white paint job, twist-lock hood tiedowns, a subtle scoop at the rear of the hood near the cowl, and a loop-type rear spoiler.
