Maybe you like this view instead?

It's a true swap and actually totally finished now but it's winter and hard to keep it clean and get good shots.

It's the SRT8 front end, I didn't have the lower lip spoiler installed when we took these shots, not the foglights.

Welcome to the forum!!!

You joined a great team, but you also joined after a troll attack, so be patient as everyone determines for themselves if you are real or not.

300 Wagon

I read that it's sold as the 300 Wagon overseas.

If it's yours, how 'bout you and the license plate in the photo.

There still seems to be something amiss with the perspective in those photos...and why does the black and white one look like the car has been superimposed on the background?

I only have those 4 pics. I'll take some more tomorrow in front of my house with dirt all over it.

The swap uses all factory Chrysler parts and is not too expensive. The hood is the most expensive part. The front bumper is only like $400, and that's for the SRT8 version. The lower spoiler is over $700 though. The paint match, which was done at the dealer was most of the cost. The dealer painted and installed the core support, fenders, and the hood. I put on the bumper, headlights, and installed the grill.

The wheels are TSW Kyalami 20x10. They don't rub in the back, but I had to run a small spacer in the front. The 20x8 fit fine, but they were out of stock when I ordered the wheels. I run a somewhat taller tire because I didn't want the "low profile tire" ride.

Springs are Eibach with 1/2 bottom coil cut out. Rides very nice, except over super bumpy roads. What it needs is a different shock and it would be perfect.

Window tint is 5% all around and that's over the factory dark rear tint. At night I can't hardly see out the back unless I'm in a well lit area. Had the car over 4 months now and knock on wood, have not had one issue. I have a friend that has a Charger on TIS 07 22s with same tint and he gets nailed all the time. I think I don't have problems because the car looks classy and more mature.

Chrysler offers the exact same car in Europe and it's called the 300C Touring. It's built on the same assembly line as the Magnum, they just change some simple things with tooling. I basically walked into the dealer, got a parts list with a diagram and figured out what I needed. The thing is, I wanted to do the Charger front end first, but the body line on the doors is so different and a custom fender blend is too much to pay for a car I might only have for a year or so.
It's by far the best mod I did. Even with the stock wheels, it looks good. If you look at a stock Magnum long enough, it looks like someone squished a Caravan and reused the front and back.

Welcome Ron, great lookin' pics! They definitely appear to be professionally shot... by you?

If you read some of the other new member threads you'll see we're usually a very warm bunch, but as CUEBALL explained, we fell victim to a recent Trolling invasion from another forum. Thanks for not losing your cool over the seeming lack of hospitality. Once everyone is comfortable that you're the real deal it will warm up in here, and I for one, look forward to more pics :wink1:

Thanks for the very friendly welcome.

I'm used to folks being skeptical about my car actually. You don't see any of the 300 wagons where I live and every Dodge/Chrysler dealer I go to that have not seen the car wonder whats up with it.

Here are a couple other pics I took this morning. Not too good of light, but you can easily see it's the real deal. The other nice pics were taken by a friend of mine who is a very good photographer. He does some small work for a couple local ST Louis forums and it didn't cost me a thing.

Thanks again,
Ron

Car looks GREAT.
One little thing, with the chrome under the lights and the the chrome in the door mouldings.... why not add the SRT8 chrome on the rear. That would "complete" the look.

Again great looking car and WELCOME! :wave:
