1955 Chrysler C-300

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-ci Hemi V8 delivered 300 horsepower and was the most powerful engine available to the public since the supercharged Duesenberg Model SJ.

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 of its kind, and it remains a great example of Chrysler’s famed “letter cars.”
