Gateway Classic Cars of Indianapolis is proud to feature this 1959 Chrysler 300-E! Part of the “Letter Series" and known as the “Lion-Hearted Letter Car", at the introduction, the 300's were marketed as “America's Most Powerful Car". Coming from one of the most iconic periods in automotive history, 1959 produced some of our favorites with the mid-century modernity that is the epitome of space age Americana! This Chrysler is enriched in history stemming from the owner's grandfather who worked for Chrysler Corporation in the 1950's and was part of the design team that created the front grill shape and color as well as the work on the tail fins.

The 300-E is considered one of the rarest of the Chrysler Letter Series, as this one is believed to be one of the last known 300's in the modern style “Turquoise Grey". With two-tone horizontal-motif bar grille dawning a red-orange finish, it has notable style with super rare accents added to it that pushes its uniqueness even further in todays collector car scene. A notably well-planned interior that gives it an elegant look with versatility such as swivel seats and “pebble-grained" vinyl interior.

Built in mind to go toe-to-toe with the soaring market that was Fords all new “4 seat Thunderbird", Chrysler Corporation needed a luxury sports car that could give Ford a run for their money. Equipped with a roaring 418 wedge-head cid V8 with twin 4-barrel carbs mated to the glorious push-button automatic TorqueFlite transmission, with mandatory power brakes and power steering, Chrysler made for tough competition with the '59 300-E having been selected as “Best Looking Hardtop". Certainly, predicated by its newly changed design theme that gave it clean lines and a restrained application of ornamentation and aircraft motifs. With a great deal of thanks going to the current owner's grandfather for helping develop this elegant beauty that can now be yours!

Options include; A/C, AM Radio, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Seats with Swivel Action, Seat Belts, Dash Mounted Mirror, Vinyl Interior, Radial White Wall Tires, and more!
