The Chrysler 300 SRT Pacer limited edition has officially sold out, according to internal records – even though about a dozen examples remain in dealer stock, some with discounted price tags.
All examples have been reported to Chrysler Australia as sold, according to internal dealer stock searches.
However, a quick search online has found at least 10 examples still advertised for sale, while a small number have also been spotted in showrooms.
Prices range from as low as $68,790 drive-away up to $75,000 drive-away. Colour appears to be the main difference; grey or white examples are at the lower end of the price spectrum, while black examples appear to be holding at $74,000 to $75,000 drive-away.
All 50 cars are individually numbered and come with a limited-edition print of an original Valiant Pacer alongside a Chrysler 300 SRT finished in a similar pale yellow colour (pictured below).
Given there are 64 Chrysler dealers nationally, some missed out on being allocated a 300 SRT Pacer edition to sell.
The 6.4-litre Hemi V8 in the limited edition Pacer gained no extra power than the regular 300 SRT models (350kW/637Nm), however there was plenty of Pacer badging to pay homage to the original from 1969.
The original Valiant Pacer had mixed success on the track against the might of Holden and Ford in the late 1960s and early 1970s but, 50 years on, it has ended up being the last affordable sports sedan available in Australia from the Big Three.
Chrysler Australia says there are no plans to retire the 300 SRT anytime soon; CarAdvice understands it will remain in production for the foreseeable future.
Priced from $69,950 plus on-road costs, the 300 SRT Pacer edition slotted between the 300 SRT Core ($65,950) and the flagship model ($74,950).
The pale yellow example of the Chrysler 300 SRT Pacer edition was a concept design only, and never made it to production.
