The legendary Chrysler 300 letter series cars are the first true Muscle Cars of the modern performance era. Franklin Mint Precision Models is proud to present the "D" series Chrysler 300 letter car that has it all. The dramatic sweeping rear fenders, stunning tail fins and dramatic grille all contribute to the moniker "Beautiful Brute" coined by the automotive press. Available in a Limited Edition of just 2,500 pieces worldwide, your 1958 Chrysler 300D convertible is destined to become a shelf-top classic, just like the coveted original.
If the Chrysler 300 was a reckoning force on the track, you could not tell by its appearance, for it was a truly elegant automobile. With a broad, scowling front grille and long, sweeping tail fins, the 1957 300C was a particular favorite among automobile enthusiasts — lean and stylish. In 1958, Chrysler returned to the market with only minor changes to the already successful 300C and presented the 300D to the anxious public. Well-known mystery-adventure novelist and car collector Clive Cussler owned this exact car as part of a large collection of automobiles, which often featured prominently in his novels. For the first time ever, Chrysler offered fuel injection as an optional engine feature. Although many people did not check this option when it came time to order, the automotive press made notice of yet another advancement in the Chrysler line. Now, the 1958 Chrysler 300D Convertible "Beautiful Brute" is re-created in an authorized, precision-engineered 1:24 scale die-cast replica, crafted in authentic detail by Franklin Mint Precision Models. From the grille to the tail fins...from the powerful 392cid V-8 engine to the lush interior...your 1958 Chrysler 300D Convertible is certain to be a showpiece that you will treasure for years to come.
