1957 Chrysler 300
Car for sale by Specialty Sales Classics in Fairfield, California 94533
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

The current owner of this 1957 Chrysler 300C Hardtop has enjoyed it since 2018 and he informs us that it’s been fully restored back to factory condition at the highest possible levels. Serious collectors will know the Chrysler 300-C as America’s highest performing automobile back in the mid-50’s as it was hand built and modeled after the 300B NASCAR version. Before its launch over 60 years ago, this model set speed records at Chelsea Proving Grounds, the Flying Mile in Daytona and other events to make it one of the most desirable low production vehicles of the decade.
This particular 1957 Chrysler 300C Hardtop is one of a handful still known to be in existence with the factory correct drivetrain and extensive original accessories. The owner has provided us solid documentation to tell it’s life story and we also have build information on file that documents the restoration. This example drives excellent to this day with great acceleration, fantastic handling and everything you’d look for in a premium example- the ride quality and performance are truly second to none.
In terms of present condition, we searched high and low for flaws on this 1957 Chrysler 300C Hardtop and essentially came up empty. There is a slight scratch on the roofline but otherwise, the body is laser straight and each panel is aligned perfectly all the way around. The paint work is excellent and so it the chrome, trim work, badging, glass and wheels- this example is truly “calendar ready” since it shows so well in person. The leather interior is new in appearance as well so this one is ready to be driven and shown off immediately.
