1961 CHRYSLER 300

1961 CHRYSLER 300


Presented in its original Alaskan White, this Chrysler 300 has received an older restoration that set out to preserve its originality. The sheet metal appears original, with the exception of the rear quarters, which were replaced at the time of restoration.

The door gaps and rockers are excellent, the floors are originals and all of the glass is original, except for the windshield.

The original Air Temp air conditioning sticker still resides on the passenger side of the back window. The paint, chrome and other trim is all in excellent condition. Given the age of the restoration, the car has been preserved phenomenally well and could easily be shown at local and regional shows. The interior is beautiful and in excellent overall condition. It has a reproduction dash pad, but is otherwise original.

This 300 is powered by a 413ci 8-cylinder engine backed by automatic transmission. The brakes and fuel systems have been completely gone through, all of the fluids have been changed, and the car has been extensively road-tested. The brakes are excellent and virtually all mechanical functions are in top working order. This stunning coupe is well-known by both clubs as its curator for the last several decades was a proud collector of letter-series cars and hence, very active in all club activities.
