The letter series Chrysler models are full sized personnel luxury cars focused on performance and built from 1955 through 1965. The letter designations are in many minds the beginning of the muscle car age. The new Hemi 392 (6.4 L) engine was available for the 1957 model year and there was a 390 cu in (6.5 L) engine putting out 390 hp (290 kW) on the table as well, but this is a rarely chosen option with only 18 units factory assembled. There were 1,918 coupes leave the assembly plant and for the first time, there are also 474 letter series convertibles, produced in 1957.
