1957 CHRYSLER 300C
1957 CHRYSLER 300C
First off this is and absolutely beautiful piece of history. The Chrysler 300’s were built as a high-performance personal luxury cars. The 1957 model year featured a wide front grill and larger tailfins. The Hemi engine was upgraded to the 392 ci Fire Power V8 with 375 hp and was backed up with a 3-Speed Torque Flite A488 automatic transmission. There was only 1,918 – 1957 Chrysler 300C coupes built. The wheel base is 126 inches, the length is 219.2 inches and the width is 78.8 inches.
This Chrysler 300C is a beautiful car to look at and a absolutely amazing car to cruise in. The color and the car brings a lot of attention your way when at the cruise in. It is always a one of at the cruise in and always an attention graber. This is an older frame on restoration, but still looks amazing and has been taken great care of.
The exterior of this Chrysler 300C is very straight and solid. The Gauquin Red paint is amazing and in very good condition. The paint has a high quality shine and still represents the car very good. The large quarter panels are nice and straight with no ripples or markings. All of the chrome is in very good condition and has a high shine. All of the door and hood alignments are good and are shown in the pictures. All of the hoods and doors open and close as they should. The under carriage was undercoated from factory and is very solid. The undercoating is light and not thick or gobbed on trying to hide anything. You can still see the floor beads thru the undercoating and the pictures reflect how solid this car is. It has had a new fuel tank and new 2.5″ flowmaster exhaust added recently, which makes this Hemi sound awesome. It is also riding on a new set of 915 Cobra Tires matched to a new set of Chrysler Wire Rims. Which makes this car not only ride great but look great also.
The interior of this Chrysler 300C is also as stunning as the exterior. It is done in a tan leather seat coverings from front to back. The power windows all work as they should as does the power seats. It has had a new headliner installed and the chrome head strips are in very good condition as well. All of the door panels are in very good condition as is the dash and rear window sash panel. The only thing that I am aware of that is not operating as it should is the fuel gauge and the factory in dash tachometer. The tachometer does work but is not correct. The push button shifting works as it should as does the push button starter. The emergency brake also operates as it should so it makes for a easy parking environment. Overall the interior is in great shape and looks amazing and is a comfortable ride.
The drivetrain on this Chrysler 300C is believed to be original to the car. The 392 ci Fire Power engine starts, runs and sounds great. The 3 speed Torque Flight transmission shift out nice and smooth as it should. The engine compartment is nice and detailed and has a great appearance that enhances the car when you pop open the hood. The new 2.5″ flowmaster exhaust sounds great but is not to loud as you cruise down the road. Each time you get in and push the button to start this beauty, it just jump to life and gives you the amazing sounds that only a true Hemi engine can produce.
Overall this is a absolutely beautiful automobile that has the Looks, the Muscle and Spirit to make driving a pleasure!
