Description for Chrysler 300 Series 1955

What will excite collectors the most is what's under the hood. That is a stellar presentation of this coupe's original 331 cubic-inch FirePower V8. This is Chrysler's original Hemi engine, and the C-300 is the car that established the iconic status that its grandson still enjoys today. The motor was built for true performance with dual Carter four-barrel carburetors and a racing camshaft to create 300 horsepower. It established a hp record for production cars that year, and this honor is the story behind the "300" in its name. As you can see from the pictures, this motor has been treated with the respect it deserves with a terrific original-style presentation, right down to the golden valve covers that match massive air intake. The C-300 could handle its competition-worthy power with composure thanks to a specially prepared PowerFlite automatic transmission, heavy-duty suspension, and power steering.
