Mean while in the UK BMC was offering the 1959 mini minor one of the first compact cars that offered full 4 pass anger seating.

In the 50s Chryslers advertising not only pictured elegance in automotive design, it also highlighted advancements in engineering. Hydraglide,the industries first power steering unit, was introduced in 1951, and reduced steering effort by up to 80 percent.

Following on the heels of Hydraglide were two other innovations-air cooled brakes, and Hemi-head V8 engine.

Eventually a 300-horsepower Hemi-head engine found its way into the Chryslers brand’s most notable achievements- the 1955 Chrysler C300. As the most powerful full sized car in the world,it found its way into the NASCAR circuit, winning 20 out of 40 races held in 1955. When NASCAR officials realized the power of the 300C engine the decision to ban it from sanctioned racing.

Oddly enough the negative publicity, made the Chrysler C300 even more popular, and led up to a similar super car in 1956. In 1956 Chrysler teamed up with CBS to offer the Highway HI-FI a compact phonograph mounted under the dashboard that played specially-made records.

In 1957 the now famous torsion-bar suspension which provided superior handling and allowed for much lower body styles.

At the end of the decade in 1958, Chrysler created a much more efficient and dependable alternative to the carburetor with the development of the electronic fuel injection.

In 1954 Jaguar produced the racing D-Types, initially as a racing car, and from 1955 as a limited production machine for worldwide sale. More of these cars were built than could be sold, and at the end of 1956 these D-Types would be reworked and sold as road-going cars renamed the XKSS.

One of the most famous Mercedes of all time was the, was the gull -wing 300SL..The engine was so heavy the rest of the car had to be as light as possible, to which the competition department designed a stressed multi-tubular space frame, that weighted a little more then 110 lb (50)kg.This car would reach 60mph in under 7.5 sec. and 100mph (160kph) in less than 15 sec.

At the end of the 1950s decade a average car cost around 2,200 dollars, and a gallon of fuel was about 30. cents. The 1950s produced so of the most famous, and most collectable cars of our time.
