The very same day that West Germany became a sovereign state on May 5th, 1955, this Chrysler C300 was just leaving the assembly line to get shipped out. 62 years later and transferred hands from the original family once 30 years ago, this is one of the best kept C300 still roaming the streets. This car has spent its entire life here in Denver area and, when purchased by the current owner, the car underwent an extensive restoration including professionally rebuilding the original engine and 7 clutch transmission, correcting any blemishes in the body, reupholstering the interior, and going through all other mechanical components.
The original 331 Hemi was rebuilt by a reputable local shop in the Denver area and all parts for the build were supplied by Hot Heads in North Carolina. It has solid lifters giving it a distinctive high performance sound and is also equipped with stainless steel valves and a double roller camshaft drive. The engine was completely balanced and is running at 9.5:1 compression to run regular unleaded fuel.
The body was completely stripped down and was thoroughly looked over for any issues. Anything found was meticulously fixed correctly and then had a complete single stage Deltron black paint job lain on top. To contrast the sheen black paint, the bumpers were rechromed to really set the car off. The wire wheels on the car were original to it and were wrapped in new Diamond back wide white wall radial tires.
The interior was professionally reupholstered using a Goers kit that is an exact copy of the original tan cowhide. The new interior included the seats, door panels, carpet, and the trunk.
The owner of this car refers to it as a “drive anywhere” car and does not worry no matter where the car show may be located. This is a car you can be certain will turn head no matter where you go and will win awards when entered. If you have had your eye out for a Chrysler C300 like this, you won’t find another one quite like this.
