Gateway Classic Cars of Louisville proudly presents this beautiful 1957 Chrysler 300. The 300 line was introduced in 1955 to give Chrysler a suitable platform for stock car competition and, given free rein to win at all costs, its engineers wasted no time netting back-to-back NASCAR championships. In 1957, hell-bent on elevating Chrysler to America's premier automotive brand, those same engineers took home top honors at Daytona's world famous Flying Mile. And by the time this long, low and sleek land rocket hit the streets it had officially broken America's stock car speed record, become one of the fastest production vehicles ever sold, and gained the nickname 'Motorized Dynamite'. Today these highly coveted classics are considered a significant step in the development of what we now affectionately call muscle cars, and they've long been the premier year for Chrysler letter car collectors. With this car's 392 cubic inch Firepower V8 Chrysler created a big block legend that's still highly regarded as a revolutionary blend of performance and luxury. Not only does this hot Hemi mill produce 375 horsepower and twist stout 9.25 to 1 compression into 420 lb./ft. of torque. Induction is handled by a pair of gold air cleaners that are piped directly into two high performance Carter 4-barrel carburetors. Hop inside this handsome Chrysler and you'll find a spacious and airy driving environment which has enough room to haul the whole family in comfort and style. This professionally restored 300C Convertible represents a huge milestone in the development of Chrysler Corporation as a powerhouse manufacturer. After tearing up the beaches in Daytona and shattering speed records at the firm's own Chelsea Proving Grounds, it single-handedly spawned the world-class performance image Chrysler's eponymous brand enjoyed well into the '70s. If you're a discerning gearhead who likes top-notch classics that draw crowds wherever they go, this high performance luxury machine will be a significant addition to your collection! Options for this 1957 Chrysler 300 include; AM Radio, Power brakes, Power steering, Power Seats Power Windows, Vinyl Interior, White Wall Bias Ply tires with Wire Wheels.
