Named for its original 300 hp HEMI V8 engine, Chrysler’s C-300
caused a sensation in showrooms across the nation when it debuted
in 1955. The design successfully married lines from both the
Imperial and the New Yorker, which had been previous successful
models for the Chrysler group. The new model was billed as
“America’s Most Powerful Car” and the 300 backed up that claim with
numerous checkered flags on NASCAR tracks. Beginning in 1956, the
300 became the 300B and began what was known as the “letter series”
that would run for a decade. 1961 marked the introduction of the
seventh series 300, the 300G which was the last to showcase
designer Virgil Exner’s “Forward Look.” The 300G was the first to
feature canted headlamps and the only 300 to match this front end
with Exner’s signature fins. Power for the 300G was derived from
the 375 horsepower 413 cubic inch V8 with a cross ram intake that
propelled the 300G from 0-60 mph in only eight seconds. Only 337
300G convertibles were built for 1961 and of those only 124 are
accounted for today.
