Your "announcements" would be so much better if you simply posted the link at the same time

Outrageously Rare 1957 Chrysler 300C 2 Door Convertible

The next amazing classic up for grabs in our Fairfield showroom is this incredible, outrageously rare 1957 Chrysler 300C 2 Door Convertible with Gauguin Red exterior paint and a tan leather interior. You’ll find a factory 392 cid, 375 horsepower V-8 engine under the hood with a Torqueflite 3-speed automatic transmission, factory dual arm torsion bar front suspension, power steering, power brakes, a power convertible top and an ultra-rare factory installed Hiway Hi-Fi entertainment system, which plays 16 2/3 RPM records. With only 72,939 lifetime miles on this highly desirable convertible, this is likely the Crown Jewel of ’57 300C’s nationwide.

Meticulously Restored to the Highest Possible Standards

This 1957 300C Convertible was developed by Chrysler for the brand new NASCAR series and it was the fastest production car of the year. With a roaring 392 Hemi with a three-speed Torqueflite automatic, dual quads and a new dual arm front suspension, these highly desirable muscle cars achieved top speeds of over 130 MPH gliding down the open road. Only 2,402 examples were produced in that maiden year with a mere 484 as convertibles. This numbers-matching example before you today with all original sheet metal, the complete factory interior and the impossible to find Hiway Hi-Fi option makes this one of the rarest, most sought after examples you’ll have the pleasure of viewing this year.

Additionally, this particular 1957 Chrysler 300C 2 Door Convertible (serial # 3NE573251) underwent a multiyear frame-off restoration from 2008 to 2010 to bring it back above Chrysler’s new standards in a typical showroom. All of the sheet metal, floor pans, chrome and the entire interior are reported by the current owners as 100% original- so is the drivetrain and most of the accessories on this jaw dropping classic. Everything was restored or refreshed to the highest possible levels with absolutely no expense spared. It’s been driven less than 3,000 miles since 2010 and received a recent tune up to ensure it’s ready to enjoy immediately.

Factory Correct Drivetrain, Interior, Suspension, Frame & Body

Stepping towards this 1957 Chrysler 300C 2 Door Convertible feels like stepping back in time with a shockingly straight body that seems to flow on forever. With flawless factory-correct Gauguin Red exterior paint and fully restored chrome and trim work, the exterior of this classic is truly unrivaled by any example we’ve ever come across worldwide. We were informed that this restoration exceeded $150,000 and the attention to detail is truly incredible. The exterior of this classic is a 10 out of 10, flawless, absolute perfection.

A glance under the hood of this ’57 Chrysler 300C Roadster will make any discerning collector smile as the factory 392 V-8 is new in appearance. Not only has each component been fully restored in appearance and function, but you’ll also find like new hoses, brackets, washers, nuts and screws. With optimal alignment throughout and professional paint, this incredible rare example possibly looks better today than it did leaving the dealership over 60 years ago.

The interior may well be the most impressive aspect of this 1957 Chrysler 300C 2 Door Convertible since the original Airfoam cushions and correct padded dash are still in place with fresh leather wrapping. The factory instrument cluster was also painstakingly refreshed as was the two tone factory steering wheel, radio and rare Hiway Hi-Fi record player. Fresh carpeting was added to complete the sensational look and the finishing is exceptional. The power ragtop also aligns correctly and is new in appearance- the tan color really compliments the red exterior nicely.

The Crown Jewel of Historically Significant Muscle Cars

Overall, this exceedingly rare 1957 Chrysler 300C Roadster is one of the most pristine examples in existence today. Given that this highly collectible classic is considered by many as the first true muscle car of the era, finding such a well-documented low mileage example is likely a once in a lifetime opportunity. For someone seeking the best of the best in one of the most significant classics ever built, it simply will not get any better than this amazing ’57 Chrysler 300C Convertible.

Thanks Marc. Now if we could just get Steve to post links.

Did I miss it because I didn't see any engine bay photos in those 66 shiny paint job photos.

Nice car but OH MY the price. That would require winning the lottery first for me.

$100,000 worth of HYPE and then a car that needs close inspection and documentation. Typical.
