So the 300 deluxe option could be ordered on hardtop cars, was that just a different interior? Thanks for sharing.

I'm confused. Isn't this a 69 300 Deluxe SS396?

300 Deluxe is a model, you could get a post sedan or hardtop 300 Deluxe and get the SS396 package on both as well. 1969 Only

They might have built less post cars back in the day, but the hardtop 300s seem harder to find today.

13427 vin is the Post Coupe 300

13437 is the Sport Coupe 300

Here is my 13437 300 SS 396 car and PoP

Being a one-year-only offering that was none too popular when new, they can indeed be confusing today.

The 300 deluxe was its own separate series from the Malibu line. The 752 black bench seat interior had several variances. The main ones being the rubber floor mat, door panels and upholstery pattern.

300 hardtops still had the astro ventilation system.

Was it unpopular or unknown? I was -10 in 1969, so just asking for some historical perspective.
