Auctions America will offer at Fall Carlisle auction from October 3-4, a part of american history, the beautiful 1961 Chrysler 300G. This stunning car is different from its predecessor by Virgil Exner’s fins, new front end with canted quad headlamps and a new rear treatment. The 1961 300G accelerates from 0 to 60-mph in 8.4-seconds, pretty good for an old guy, don’t you think.
This specific car is fully restored example with the 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 power options like power seats, windows, brakes and steering.
The exquisite Raven black paint is 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, like the car generally.
