The 1959 Chrysler 300 E

Considered a part of the New Yorker series the big brute continued the tradition of luxurious, high-performance driving pleasure. Minor styling revisions and the use of a wedge-shaped combustion chamber engine were changes. The new engine was said to have performance equal to or slightly better than the hemi engine, which left no doubt as to the car's heritage. A revised grille, on the familiar theme, eliminated the vertical bar look. A 300 insignia was placed on the driver's side of the hood, in line with the headlamps. Swivel bucket seats were available and the red-white-blue medallion was positioned in its usual place. The letter 'E' was added to the medallion to signify the new model as the 300E. This was the last year for separate body and frame design.
