It was the 300f and to answer your question I think the Chevrolet Z/28. It was a dealer item for the 302.

Trivia

Just a note, but wasn't the first car to get 1 hp per cu inch the Chrysler 300B of '56? I know Chevrolet claimed credit for it in '57, (and I am a Chevy man!) but I thot Mopar actually did it first with 355 HP in a 354 inch engine!

OK, So far; I did find the article online that says that, but the Motors Brand manuals, and two shop manuals, of the era do not list it that way. It did show that almost all of the hemi engines had more torque than CID, but that all the production hemi engines listed, Dodge, Chrysler, Desoto, Imperial, all fell a bit short on the horsepower per cid. They were HP rated however at low RPMs.

Found one note in a 56/57 Chrysler shop manual referencing a very limited number of hemi engines which were prevented from going into production for design problems, leaks and timing issues. Sounded like a silent recall. I bet they were made, but no evidence of being sold, or advertised anyway. So far... But I'm sure someone out there, probably in Ontario,<home of the stone cold Mopar enthusiast, has more info..

Also read elsewhere that the 57 fuel injected 283 actually produced 290hp@6300 but was marketed as 283@6200, Probably for the same reason Denver claims to be a mile high when it's actually over 5700'..
