Cohort Pic(k) of the Day #2: 1955 Chrysler 300 – The Legend Begins Here

Matt Wilda caught this superb ’55 Chrysler catching a few rays. It’s one of those milestone cars that we’ve unfortunately never covered here at CC yet, and today is not the time to give it full justice, with just one shot. It was the first mass-produced American car with 300 hp (hence the name), from it’s hopped-up 331 hemi V8. It was a blistering sensation when it arrived, and quickly set all sorts of speed records and dominated NASCAR that year. And of course, it looks the part, especially with the  wire wheels. It’s the 300 I would put in my garage.
