FEATURED AUTO

1959 Chrysler 300E

The 1959 300E retained its front grille design that was originally introduced in 1957. The big news was the new 413 cubic-inch 380 horsepower Wedge V8 which replaced the Hemi-head engine. This car had a limited production, making it a rare find and is the fifth edition of the letter-series 300.

America's Car Museum's 1959 Chrylser 300 was a Griot's Garage catalog cover car 2010 and will be on display at Griot's garage, along with our 1930 Packard, for their 25th Anniversary celebration.
