345 bhp, 345 cu. in. Hemi OHV V-8 engine, three-speed Torqueflite automatic transmission, torsion bar independent front suspension and live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel power drum brakes. Wheelbase: 126 in.


One of only three-hundred 1957 Adventurer Convertibles produced
Legendary Chrysler Hemi power

Although both rode a 126-inch wheelbase, the Chrysler 300 weighed 115 pounds more than the DeSoto Adventurer Convertible, and Chrysler's 392-cubic inch Hemi developed 375 horses, which outclassed the DeSoto's 345 with 345 brake horsepower. At $5,359, the Chrysler 300 Convertible cost nearly $1,100 more than the $4,272 Adventurer, but at 484 cars, it was apparently more popular—DeSoto sold only 300 convertibles. One thing stands out for DeSoto: at one-horsepower-per-cubic-inch, it was more efficient than the Chrysler 300..
