1955 55 Chrysler 300 Restored Hotrod * A518 Transmission * 468 V8

This beauty has 3 owners including me. The previous owner of this 300 tried to blend the new with the old while maintaining the original look. Because he was very involved in the local racing scene, speed was very important to him. Back in the 1980s, he decided to make this Chrysler really perform by replacing the motor, transmission, and rear end.

The 331 CID stock engine was replaced with a 392 CID block bored to 468 CID. Other engine modifications include:
5/8-inch Stroker
Roller camshaft
Smith Brothers adjustable push rods
Forged steel rods
Hot aluminum cylinder heads and valve covers
Sanderson 500 hp headers
Wyatt Intake manifold for two four-barrel Edelbrock 600 cfm carburetors
Forged aluminum pistons
MSD ignition

The transmission is a Mopar A518 automatic overdrive.
The rear end is Ford 9-inch 4:11 with Detroit locker.

The drivability of this car is fantastic. Very smooth and fast with a well-balanced horsepower to rear end ratio. It shifts properly, responds with authority, and is very very fast. It holds great oil pressure and does not have any heating problems. This car has been completely serviced and is ready to go.

The underside of the car is rust free and very solid. There is slight bubbling of the paint ahead of the rear wheel well. See pictures. The original leather interior looks like it has been redyed, but it is intact and very presentable. An aftermarket racing tachometer was installed on the steering column. The radio and the heater are not operational.

This car was professionally repainted in 1980. The paint shows great patina but is also showing its age -- nicks, scratches, and spider webbing. Please see pictures. All the chrome, stainless, and glass are very presentable. It appears the wire wheels are factory correct with the chrysler insignia inside the hubcap, but the wheels and hubcap show some deterioration and pitting.
