While many classic cars get a lot of press and attention at car shows, some do fall under the radar. However, these cars should be getting more attention as they were produced in limited quantities, and due to this, they always turn heads whether you show them at a classic car show or drive them down the street in your hometown. Many borrowed parts from other vehicles, so parts may not be as hard to find when restoring one as many first think. Each one offers something making it extra special. Here are five overlooked classic cars to consider.
1955 Chrysler C-300
The 1955 Chrysler C-300 was the first car introduced with a 300-horsepower engine, and many consider it the first high-performance car introduced to the public. To keep up with the power demands of the new engine, Chrysler also introduced a new two-speed Powerflite automatic transmission. Chrysler sold 1,725 of these cars during the year. Many drivers found this car a joy to drive on the highway because of its unusually firm front suspension. Many drivers loved the feel of the natural cowhide seats. With a suggested price tag of 4,110 dollars, it was the second most costly car buyers saw on a Chrysler showroom floor during that year. Buyers could choose between a convertible or a coupe.
