More than any other U.S. automaker, Chrysler has reached back into the past for its show cars. This 1990 Chrysler 300 concept sedan tried to recapture the flavor of Exner's 1950s Ghia cars, especially in the Italianate grille. Modern 300 also played off Chrysler's big performance cars of that same era. It even had suicide rear doors and faux quad lamps.
The 1991 Chrysler 300 four-door concept car recalls the original Chrysler 300 series and other classics from the 1960s. Built in a 126-inch wheelbase, the rear-wheel-drive Chrysler 300 is powered by an 8-liter V-10 "Copperhead" engine mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission. Features include air conditioning vents in the performance driver's seat, a combination television/video cassette recorder/cellular phone and separate headphones for rear-seat passengers, functional rear-hinged back doors, and three levels of interior lighting.
