Description

Chrysler paved the way for the true muscle car era in 1955 with the introduction of their 300 Hardtop, named after the 300 horsepower 331ci V8 Hemi under the hood.It would dominate the NASCAR circuit, and with continued engineering improvement year after year, would go on to set passenger car speed records at Daytona Beach.As engine displacement increased, so did the horsepower.By 1957, Chrylser's 300C Hemi was now 392 cubic inches making 375 horsepower!They would also add a convertible model to the lineup in limited quantities this year along with Virgil Exner's "Forward Look" style design in full display.The quad headlights, egg crate grill with '300' emblem centered like a target taking aim, and prominent tail fins at the rear!
They were remarkable road cars, engineered by Chrysler as their "premier luxury sports car".A 413ci wedge engine came in 1958 with the same 375 horsepower, which later adopted cross-ram intake runners in 1960 giving the dual Carter AFB carburetion a unique under hood presentation!The 1961 300G features the last of the huge tail fins along with the absence of the distracting rear trunk 'toilet seat" ornament, replaced instead by stamped ribbing perfecting the overall presentation.Up front, the headlights were now angled for an aggressive appearance when the car was coming at you, a similar visual aspect that Chrysler & Dodge continue to use today!
We are very proud to offer this beautifully restored 1961 Chrysler 300G Convertible finished in Marti Gras Red over Tan Leather interior with White convertible soft top!Powered by its original, code correct 413ci High-Performance Ram Induction V8 and pushbutton 3-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission to produce 375 horsepower and 495 lb. ft. or torque!Options are abundant to include power steering, power brakes, power convertible top & windows, power driver seat, swivel seats, remote outside mirror, Jiffy Jet windshield washer, Golden Tone pushbutton AM radio with electric antenna, pushbutton heat/defrost controls, BF Goodrich Silvertown 8.20x15 4-ply wide whitewall tires, full chrome wheel disc covers, Sparton horns, and reverse lights!The 300G is the second production year utilizing a unibody chassis design providing an incredibly rigid foundation for a solid sports car feel!In total, Chrysler would produce 1,617 300G vehicles, or which only 337 would be in convertible form.
This example was cosmetically and mechanically restored to near concours condition in the late 1990's and went onto be part of the McMullen Collection where it was prominently displayed since 1998 amongst some of the finest collector cars in the world!The collection contained a huge array of high-quality vehicles from a 1900 DeDion Quadricycle to V16 Cadillacs and a 1931 Duesenberg Tourster!Every car in the collection were of the finest restored condition and maintained at the highest level.This gorgeous 1961 Chrysler 300G Convertible is no exception.
When the McMullen Collection was disbanded in 2007, it would make its way to another incredible collection, the Evergreen Historic Automobile collection, where is has been in their care ever since.This included annual exercise, fluid changes, along with a transmission overhaul and new water pump.It continued to start, run, and operate wonderfully in all respects, but does ride older bias ply tires.It shows only 43,901 miles on the odometer which are likely actual, but we will be selling it mileage exempt.You will have a very hard time finding a nicer example to choose from in the open market!Please feel free to call with any additional questions or to schedule a chance to review it in person.Thanks for looking!
