HardTop Coupe
The C-300 was given Chrysler's most potent V8 powerplant that made it virtually a race car sold for the road. The 331 cubic-inch, FirePower (Hemi) engine was given twin four-barrel carburetors, solid valve lifters, stiffer suspension and performance exhaust system.

Named for the 300 HP Hemi V8 under its hood, the C300 used the New Yorker bodyshell, an Imperial front clip, and Windsor rear flanks. It was 1.5 inches lower than the New Yorker hardtop it was based on, and fitted with special Goodyear Super Cushion six-ply tires, heavy-duty shocks and leaf springs, front stabilizer bar and a 150 mph speedometer.

1955 was a special year for Chrysler, as they won the NASCAR Grand National Title and AAA championship by winning 33 races and finished first in class at Daytona's Flying Mile. The C-300 established Chrysler as a dominate force in NASCAR racing and speed events for years to come. Some people even consider the C-300 the original American muscle car.

This particular C-300 was acquired in 2005 and the restoration was completed in 2007. It has won several awards since the restoration. It is finished in Platinum (white) over a tan interior and is equipped with optional power steering, AM radio, tinted glass, and chrome wire wheels. Standard equipment included a 2-speed PowerFlite automatic transmission and power brakes.
