This is a 1955 Chrysler 300. It had two 4 barrel carburetors, a 150 MPH speedometer. You could step on the gas pedal at 95 MPH and it would squeal the tires. I know because my family had one and like an idiot, at 16 years old, I drove it at 125 MPH and scared the heck out of me and my friends. Of course I pretended to be cool, but I shaking inside. I think that in 1955 this was the fastest production car in the world.  Fred
