CHRYSLER 300 SERIES — (8-CYL) — The most powerful automobile of the year sported a much modified Hemi engine of 331.1 cid developing 300 brake horsepower. Two four-barrel carburetors, a full race camshaft and heavy-duty suspension, coupled with an Imperial grille and full leather interior, marked this car as something special. Performance and styling, combined in one package of such magnitude, created an aura that was to last for more than a decade.
