Carbs, fuel tank & ignition were recently refurbished. The C 300 was the OG muscle car. This car is even equipped with Cheater slicks! This first of the letter series cars did not bear a letter, but can retroactively be considered the '300A'. The 'C-' designation was applied to all Chrysler models The 300 originally stood for the 300 hp engine. The C-300 was a racecar aimed at the NASCAR circuits that was sold for the road for homologation purposes, with Chrysler's most powerful engine, the OHV 331 cu in Fire Power "Hemi" V8, due to the hemispheric shape of the combustion chambers, fitted with dual four barrel carburetors, a race-profiled camshaft setup, solid valve lifters, stiffer suspension, and a performance exhaust system. This engine was exclusive to the 300. The car's styling can be attributed to designer Virgil Exner. There were few options available including selection of three exterior colors of Black, Tango Red and Platinum White and only one color of tan leather interior.
