History Of the Chrysler Three Hundred Series - 1958


1958 Chrysler 300D Hardtop
Nineteen fifty-eight saw a continuation of fins and big horsepower numbers. The 300D was also available with fuel injection, but very few were ordered and almost all of these were later recalled to have carburetors fitted. This was however the first use of a computer in a Chrysler product.
