Car description

1961 Chrysler 300G 2 Door Hardtop Coupe Factory Air Conditioning Rare

I am pleased to offer this fabulous 1961 Chrysler 300G 2 door hardtop coupe. These early 60’s Chryslers are marvels of design and the ’61 is arguably the best of all letter cars. This beauty features power steering, power brakes, power windows, power seats, leather interior, whitewall tires, push button radio, electric antenna, clock and super rare air conditioning. VIN: 8413194527. Mileage shoes 12,5XX.

Some facts about the ’61 300G:


For the 1961 Chrysler 300G, major design elements were quite literally flipped upside down from the previous year’s model. Namely, the grille was now wide at the top and narrow at the bottom, and the dual headlights that were once side by side now flanked the wide-mouthed grille at v-shaped angles. A prime example of Virgil Exner’s ”Forward Look” aesthetic of the 1950s and early ’60s, this car’s trademark fins (now with the taillights moved to the bumper and replaced with indicators) helped give the car its iconic shape. But as the Chrysler Brand’s design aesthetic would eventually change, so would the car’s trademark fins. The 1961 Chrysler 300G was the last Chrysler car designed by Virgil Exner to feature them.

Standard & Available Features:

Often an optional feature in cars of the time, power windows came standard in the 1961 Chrysler 300G. Optional features for this car included a power seat for $102, a heater for $102, air conditioning for $510, a power antenna for $26, a rear-window defogger for $21, a Sure Grip differential for $52 and tinted glass for $43.

Only 1,617 Chrysler 300Gs were ever produced, making present-day sightings a rare occurrence indeed.

Car was originally painted Alaskan white but is now a gorgeous and rare turquoise. The car was restored and repainted in approx. 2008. Complete new interior: carpet, headliner, seat covers, door panels, etc with mint padded dash and instruments. Car was also repainted, chrome re-chromed and front brakes were upgraded to disc brakes. During the restoration, the long ram induction and dual carbs were removed and replaced with a single 4 barrel carb (this was a common modification on these letter cars – as the dual carb setup was finicky and hard to keep in tune). Long ram induction and dual carbs are not included with this sale although they are rare, they are available and can be found. Owner is happy to discuss with any prospective buyer.

This is an rare original air conditioning car (see below), factory AC and vents in place but not working. Original AM radio in dash and modern AM FM radio in glove box with no mods Underside is very solid (see pictures). Also, new rubber throughout – tires, weatherstripping, hoses, belts etc.
