Chrysler 300G
Award-winning Chrysler 300G tops Verde Museum sale at $130,000
Back to main news page
As noted by Hemmings Daily, sometimes a car doesn’t need any special provenance or one-of-one status to rise to the top of a collection. Just take the 1961 Chrysler 300G that sold for $130,000 to top this past weekend’s Verde Museum auction.   This 300G wasn’t owned by any celebrity and apparently didn’t have the distinction of being first or last off the assembly line; it simply features a restoration of such quality to earn not only an AACA First Place award in 2002, but also an AACA Grand National two years later. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that this era of American cars is currently enjoying a surge in popularity; nor does it hurt that, as a letter car, it features a 375hp cross-ram dual-quad 413-cu.in V-8 under the hood, along with a TorqueFlite automatic transmission. One of just 337 produced in 1961, this is a rare and beautiful Chrysler 300G convertible. 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.  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.
