1960 Chrysler 300F Convertible

Mecum is offering the vehicle at it's Houston event in early April. Chrysler produced 1,217 300Fs in 1960 of which 248 were convertibles. This example sports a 413/375 HP CI V-8 engine.

Many consider Chrysler letter cars to be the first true muscle cars. 300F's made 145 miles per hour at Daytona in 1960.
The sixth-generation car benefited from unibody construction and the largest rear fins in the series.
A concours quality 1960 Chrysler 300F Convertible crossed the block at RM Sotheby's for $ 143,000 in 2014.
