Chrysler (US Models) 1957-74

The USA is definitely the place to head if you want a Hemi Chrysler from the 1950s. Local pickings are slim and importers seem wary of speculating in the market for ‘letter series’ Chrysler 300s.

Later models with the proprietary 383 cubic inch engine offer lots of car and quite interesting styling for remarkably little money.

Best buys from this era include 1968 models with concealed headlights at under $30,000 and convertibles for $20K more.

Treating the neighbours to a conspicuous display of opulence doesn’t have to be expensive either. A chrome-encrusted 1950s Imperial with Hemi motor and all the trimmings can cost less than $35,000.

300/Saratoga 1957-61 $110,000 [1]
