1961 Chrysler 300G
|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
It has been recently treated to a no-expense-spared restoration and finished in the original black color. The 'Letter Cars' are highly sought after by collectors, and the excellent condition of this car and superior pedigree had bidding surpass the estimated low-value, and reaching $159,500 including buyer's premium.
The 300G represented the pinnacle of luxury, style, and performance for Chrysler in 1961. It was the second and last year for the cross ram induction setup to be included as standard equipment. The cross ram setup maximized horsepower and torque resulting in quick acceleration. It had a zero-to-sixty time of just seven seconds which was an incredible feat considering the weight and size of the vehicle.
There were 337 examples of the 330G convertible constructed with around 120 or so still in existence in modern times. Fewer than ten percent of those were ordered in factory executive black.
