  • Does Jay Leno have the rarest American car?

    From Road & Track:

    A fuel-injected Chrysler from 1958 that shouldn't exist? That's only where things start.

    On September 28, 1957, Chrysler announced electronic fuel injection for the 1958 model year. It intended to use the Bendix Corporation's Electrojector system to push its Rambler Rebels, the Chrysler 300Ds, Dodge D500s, DeSoto Adventurers and Plymouth Furys into the future, but the technology never worked right, and was quickly cancelled. Rumor has it that 23 fuel-injected 1958 300Ds left the factory, most of which got recalled immediately so the Electrojector system could be replaced with four-barrel carburetor, and some shameful de-badging could take place.

    Talking of rare Chryslers: when was the last time you saw a 1957 Imperial with 45,000 miles and original paint?
    My favorite part of that story, though, is the Chrysler ad, below. 390 HP wasn't bad in 1958, and I wonder if Elon Musk knows that Chrysler had "auto-pilot" and "driver assist" all the way back then.

      Ken Lingenfelter has a 1953 McCulloch supercharged Corvette. It was one of two built, and now the only one in existence. It was developed by McCulloch for GM to evaluate using its supercharger in a production Corvette. Along with about 30 others, as part of the C7 1.13.14 reveal weekend, we got a private tour of the Ken Lingenfelter Collection — where it still resides.
