The Chrysler 300G was the last three hundred to wear Virgil Exner's fins. Major differences from the previous years model included a new front end with canted quad headlamps and a new rear treatment, which lacked the faux continental spare of the 300F. The 1961 300G was tested by Road & Track magazine and it went from 0 to 60-mph in 8.4-seconds. 1/4-mile was 16.2-seconds at 87-mph.
The stunning, fully restored example we have the pleasure of offering here is equipped with the correct 413-cid Cross Ram V-8 engine that produces 375 horsepower and is mated to a Torqueflite automatic transmission. It is one of 1,280 300G Coupes built in 1961 and received a thorough and complete body-off restoration and has been driven only sparingly since the completion. It is loaded with all the desirable power options including power seats, windows, brakes and steering. Additionally, the exquisite Raven black paint appears to be in excellent overall condition and is complemented by the new leather interior that exhibits exquisite detailing in its patterns. The full-length center console is beautifully executed on this model, allowing the rearward passengers to have their own bucket seat. We understand the Chrysler is a fit running example that was recently serviced and prepared for its appearance here at auction.
