'56 Chrysler 300B



Another masterpiece from Troy Trepanier's Rad Rides, this project started life as 1956 Chrysler 300B - one of just 1,102 built. This may irritate the purists, but you could argue that this is one of the greatest Chryslers ever created; the fit and finish is, as with all Trepanier's work, of a flawlessly high quality (in another league to fifties Chrysler fitment and materials), turning a sizeable sedan into an über-luxury hot rod.
Underneath, it features Dodge Viper suspension, Baer brakes and Dayton wheels, while under the hood is a 358ci twin-turbo NASCAR V8 - so the power is monstrous. But, as with all Rad Rides, the interior is the pièce de résistance; enlarge the photos and you'll see that the craftsmanship is exquisite.
More here and here.
