1: Chrysler 300F
The big sedan Chrysler released in the ’60s was supposed to incite excitement with potential buyers. A string of styling changes made the 300F look a lot different than anything else on the market. But this wasn’t enough to propel the oversized thing to a sales success. Marketed as a sports sedan, the 300F had a lot of hype in the media, and its performance was great on paper.
The car also had some innovative interior advances which made it easier to live with. Yet sadly this was not enough to sell the 300F. Consumers were looking for something more out of a vehicle, and what this one brought to the table wasn’t enough to justify the price. Decades later, the 300C became a smash hit for the company.
