28: Chrysler 300 Hurst
By the ’70s, the flavor for the perfect muscle car had been established and automakers were trying to keep up. Chrysler already had many hits on their hands but none were under the “Chrysler” banner. Thus the company decided to try once again for success with the Chrysler 300 Hurst. The car was highly hyped and it had an antagonizing design at the peak of muscle car success. Fortunately, consumers already had their favorites picked out and the Chrysler 300 Hurst just didn’t live up to expectations.
There were quite a few unique muscle cars that hit the market during this time period, and the Chrysler 300 Hurst was a unique entry. But the hype that surrounded the car just didn’t add up to the high expectations that previous Chrysler models had set for it. The Chrysler 300 Hurst is still a notably rarer muscle car that many on the market.
