Certainly some of the hottest And most desirable Chrysler’s ever produced were the letter car series that began in 1955. Chrysler received major notoriety with these high powered vehicles at NASCAR and the famous Daytona Speedway. The early 300’s were powered by the original 331 cubic inch Hemi engine that produced 300 horse power thus the 300 nomenclature. Solid lifters and dual quads further boosted these Chrysler Banker Hot Rods to set records in the quarter mile at Daytona. In 1957 the Chrysler forward look added fins to these speed demons making them fast and beautiful. The Hemi engine was replaced in 1959 with the 413 with cross ram induction which were produced through 1961. Up through the 1961 300 G these letter cars were expensive limited production vehicles only finding less than a 1000 buyers in some years. With the advent of the 1962 H and through to The 1965 L, Chrysler Letter Cars became more mainstream by virtue of their lower price.
Some feel the 300 G is the most desirable of all The Letter cars because of its great style and power making these fabulous Chrysler’s one of the most desirable cars of the 1960’s.
