1955 Chrysler C-300
300 bhp, 331 cu. in. OHV “Hemi” V-8 engine with dual four-barrel carburetors, PowerFlite two-speed automatic transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 126" • Concours-level, four-year restoration of an original California car • Consistent award winner with numerous magazine features While the Chrysler 300 is widely recognized as America’s first true muscle car, it was also a refined full-size automobile with abundant luxury features. Its “dual quad” 331-cubic inch “Hemi” V-8 delivered 300 bhp and was the most powerful engine available to the public since the supercharged Duesenberg Model SJ. At Daytona Beach, Tim Flock piloted a C-300 to a 127.580-mph two-way average in the flying mile, more than seven mph faster than its nearest competitor, and he went on to win that year’s NASCAR Grand National Championship with a C-300. The C-300 engine featured a full-race cam, higher compression, adjustable rocker shafts, solid valve lifters and dual four-barrel carburetors with a special “bat wing” air cleaner. Other features included heavy-duty suspension, lowered ride height, an improved PowerFlite automatic transmission and a 3.54:1 rear axle. Chrysler produced only 1,725 C-300s for 1955, and today the Chrysler Letter Car Club estimates just 10 percent remain in existence. This C-300, an original California car, sports a recent and photo-documented restoration that was completed over four years at a cost exceeding $90,000 for parts and materials alone. Finished in Tango Red with a luxurious tan leather interior, this C-300 has been the subject of numerous magazine articles, and it has been a consistent and proven show winner at every major show it has entered. Accolades include the Amelia Award at the 2009 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, AACA Senior Grand National honors (2008), and Best in Class at Greenwich, Hilton Head, Meadow Brook and the New England Concours. Recently detailed, this impressive C-300 is one of the finest extant and remains a great example of Chrysler’s famed “letter cars.”
