Virgil Exner continued to lead the way with improvements to the Chrysler 300 Series in both mechanical engineering and contemporary styling right into the mid-‘60s. The 300 Series was known for rocket-style tailfins, jet-like dash styling and equally impressive and intimidating performance. By 1961, styling excesses were being toned down and refined and the 300 cars began displaying these changes with powerful sophistication. The 300G lead the way for Chrysler to enter the exciting and streamlined ‘60s, and today, remains an icon of this exciting period.
Without a doubt, one of the more lavishly appointed cars when it came to the interior, they were luxurious and exceptionally fast, aimed at the moneyed motoring enthusiasts of the early 1960s. The wedge head V-8 with the rare CrossRam intake is very clean and offers ample performance, and the ride control is excellent. You’ll love the dramatic new styling for 1961 but, at the same time, it remains clearly conceived and built on the foundations of the 300C. The 300G unquestionably represents one of the last great Chrysler letter series cars, and the 300G continues to be one of the most collectable cars of the 1960s. With its distinctive sleek styling and ample chrome, it will certainly continue to appreciate in both value and attention at any car event. Take note of the proper panel gaps and long straight panels on this beauty, showing the quality of restoration that simply cannot be achieved without a high level of skill.
Originally finished in classic black with a beautiful leather bucket seat interior, this striking 300G has been beautifully and correctly restored and is ready to be shown or driven. This Chrysler comes fitted with nearly every available option, including factory air-conditioning, power seat, power windows, and rear defogger. You will enjoy a full-sized classic with luxury features and commanding performance and presence to match. It’s an investment grade 300G that is certain to continue to appreciate in value as the new owner enjoys driving this great American icon.
