  • Description

The seventh edition of Chrysler’s famed “Letter Car” series, the 1961 300-G marked the final real version of Virgil Exner’s “Forward Look” with fast low looks and big tail fins, but continued to represent perhaps the ultimate American automotive design and engineering statement of its era. Style revisions for 1961 included canted quad headlamps, which was "in" at the time, and a revised rear-end treatment. Most importantly, this was still an exceptional performance motorcar. According to a test by Car Life, the 375-bhp, 413-cu. in. wedge-head V-8 with its tuned dual cross ram intake could propel the 300-G from standing still to 60 mph in just over eight seconds – very fast for a large American car of the period.

“Letter Cars” were always costly and limited in production, hence the nickname of the “banker’s hot rod.”

This particular 300 G hardtop is a very nice original example that has been well kept over its existence and has had just a single owner since 1976. It wears an older restoration, but it still shows very nicely with nice brightwork and a well executed interior. Finished in its original colors of white with a tan interior which really complements Exners design very nicely. Mechanically it runs and drives very well and the push button transmission works as it should. The factory center console tachometer works well and is a reminder of the big horsepower hiding under the hood. A very well optioned car equipped with power brakes, power windows, power steering, swivel seats and air conditioning.  Overall a nice example of the last great year for the true big fin "bankers hotrod."
