1961 CHRYSLER 300 G

1961 CHRYSLER 300G                                        NO 29

One of just 338 produced in 1961, this rare and beautiful Chrysler 300G convertible won AACA First Place Honors in 2002 and in 2004 was awarded AACA Grand National Certification confirming its status as one of the finest of its kind.

The last in a series of brilliant designs by Virgil Exner to employ the trademark fins for which he was famous, the 1961 Chrysler 300G featured a new front end treatment, flipping the rounded trapezoid grille to accommodate new canted quad headlights and a straight front bumper for a cleaner look.

The 300 was always a luxury car with muscle, and the G continued that tradition with a long list of standard features that included an impressive 413/375 HP V-8 with a unique cross-ram intake system mounting two four-barrel carburetors. Finished in Mardi Gras Red, this 300G sports a luxurious Tan leather 2+2 interior with a full-length console, pushbutton transmission controls and the classic Astra-Dome instrument cluster.

Like all 300 models, this 300G is generously equipped with power steering and brakes, swivel seats, power windows, a white power top and black tonneau cover, power antenna, Day/Night mirror, and dual exhaust.

It is a breathtakingly beautiful car.
