Chrysler re-invented the banker's hot rod with the C 300 in 1955 and built a successful franchise on the concept that successful businessmen, while appreciating their creature comforts and luxury, wanted performance and handling that rivaled the best sports cars. The 300 series provided that vehicle. It was sedate and comfortable most of the time but capable of truly breathtaking bursts of acceleration when unleashed. By 1961 when the seventh in the 300 series, the 300G, was introduced Chrysler had perfected the balance relying on the Raised Block 413 cubic inch V-8 with unique long passage cross-ram dual four-barrel carburetor intake system that enhanced the 413's torque while delivering 375 horsepower at 5,000 rpm. This two-door hardtop is beautifully restored in white with tan leather interior and has with chrome wire wheels fitted with wide whitewall radial tires. Notably, it has air conditioning in addition to the 300G's standard power steering, power brakes and power windows. A Golden Touch radio and Chrysler's innovative swivel front seats complete its equipment. The paint, chrome and interior are very nice and the engine compartment is restored and detailed in the correct colors, proudly showing off the expanse of the Long Ram intake system. Particularly impressive are the dashboard and instruments, a splendid array of highly detailed features sometimes overlooked in restorations. Its distinctive grille and prominent 300G emblems leave no uncertainty that this is a lusty, powerful automobile prepared to take no prisoners.
