The bodywork was redone for 1960, using Chrysler’s new lightweight unibody construction and given sharper-edged styling with outward-tilting fins that were visually separated from the sides.
The 300F introduced a new, higher power 413 CU IN (6.8 L) Wedge engine delivering 375 HP in standard form. A new and completely unique “Cross Ram” manifold was used, placing the carbs on each side of the engine. The design was to have a “supercharging” effect in the heart of the RPM range. Low range performance was helped with the design. A total of 964 Coupes were built. This Sunburst Yellow 300F is one of three known to exist in this unique color.
One of the things that sets the 1960 Chrysler 300F apart from other cars of the era is its powerful 413 cubic-inch V8 engine. This powerful engine provides plenty of power and torque, making it a true thrill to drive. The car is also equipped with a 3-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission, which provides smooth and seamless shifting.
The interior of the 1960 Chrysler 300F is just as impressive as the exterior. The car is outfitted with luxurious leather seats and a host of other high-end features, such as air conditioning and power windows. The dash is also beautifully designed and features a full array of gauges and controls.
The 1960 Chrysler 300F was the last and the most powerful of the letter series, it was also the only one to feature a four-barrel carburetor and a larger engine, making it one of the most potent muscle cars of its time. It was also the fastest American car of its day, with a top speed of over 130 mph.
One of the most notable design elements of the 300F is its rear fins, which were inspired by the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter jet. These fins not only gave the car a unique and distinctive look, but they also improved its stability and handling at high speeds.
