1955 was a HUGE year for Chrysler as they had manufactured the first 300H/P vehicle in America. It was debated to be the first high-performance automobile available to the public. Chrysler wanted to take a different approach and out-perform other car companies of the time. One of the ways in which they did this, was by changing Chrysler s engine. They used a 331.1 Cubic Inch Hemi V8 engine (used in successful early 50 s race cars) with Two Four Barrel Carburetors, a Competition Cam Shift, and last but certainly not least Solid Valve Lifters. Chrysler wanted to create an unyielding and powerful motor, and they succeeded. This engine out-performed the Corvette s, Thunderbird s, and Cadillac s V8 engines. Wow! This particular 1955 Chrysler C-300 is as nice as they come. The paint colors for this 1950 Chrysler 300 were very simple. They only came in the colors red, white, and black, and this particular model is White with a Naugahyde Tan interior. These vehicles made history in 1955 winning their first NASCAR Grand National Race. They sold 1,725 models that year, and this vintage piece of history could be yours for $79,888!
