The Chrysler 300 (C-300) was introduced to the American public in the early part of 1955, kicking off a series of “letter cars” that would run through 1965. The 1956 300 was named the “300B”, the 1957 300 was named the “300C” and so on. The 1955 Chrysler 300 was never officially named the 300A, but commonly referred to such by enthusiasts. Shown here is one of the earliest sales catalogs for the Chrysler 300.

After his team’s victory, Mickey and his family took part in a 10-day camping tour of America courtesy of Dodge recreational vehicles.
Tonight is the last episode in Season 1 of The Appraisers. I close out the season by talking to a woman about her grandfather’s ’64 Chevrolet C10 pickup and chat with “Mr. Oldsmobile” about a car that represents everything that is great about the old car hobby. Tune in to Velocity tonight at 8pm or catch the replay at 11pm. Thanks for supporting the show!
Shown here is Oldsmobile’s full-line catalog for 1975.

Then again, finding a Structo No. 12 kit might be pretty difficult!
