This book is a must for enthusiasts of outstanding high-performance automobiles. It examines in detail all the great Chrysler 300 models from 1955 to the latest versions including the 425 horsepower 2005 300C SRT-8 model and the 300's running-mate, the 2005 Dodge Magnum. With hundreds of color and black and white photos, a carefully researched text, production and sales data, and a year-by-year study of each Chrysler 300, this is a high-quality book celebrating the origin and return to glory of one of America's most respected high-performance automobiles. Three eras of the Chrysler 300 are covered: the first spans of the years 1955-1965; the second 1998-2004, when Chrysler revived the 300 name as the front wheel drive 300M; the third age began in 2004 when four all-new rear wheel drive Chrysler 300 models were introduced for the 2005 model year.

About the Author
Robert Ackerson was born and raised in Rockland County, which until the mid-fifties, was a region of New York State. After high school and college he moved with his wife to a small community a few miles from Cooperstown. After raising three daughters and a career in education, Bob changed the tempo of his life and began working as a full-time writer of automotive history. This was simply an extension of what he had been doing since his pre-adolescent years when he and his brother would collect sales brochures from any auto dealer who wouldn't show them the exit. When Chrysler began introducing it's new hemi V-8's in the early fifties, Bob\u2019s interest in MOPAR was piqued, and a half-century later, with the older Chargers regarded as high -performance classics, and the new models at the forefront of a new age of high-performance, it's stronger than ever.
