I tend to agree with this, having chopped up both an aluminum nose lemans BN2 Healy (corvette v8) now worth 150 + and a perfect zero rust stripper original paint 4spdvhemi cuda . Worth what, 1m ? That got a 480" hemi , waste of my time --=driving on ice nose heavy . Sold it for 4% of what it brings now. E bodies not good cars , you had to have one new to know that . but guys with more$ than brains want one now due to others wanting one . King of the hill stuff. Big hat no cattle w hemi E body. And there are more of them coming .
I had a 300g convert , never cared for it appearance wise compared to CD or F . I fixed it but then sold it. 300g coupe too that I drove cross country . Nice tight 300 though . Just me . 61 a very low point in Chrysler styling , if you were there and objective . I was there . Look at a 61 Pontiac ventura thin roof coupe ! I hate pontiacs but 421 4 spd in that body , titian red aluminum wheels compared to 300G makes for an interesting comparison in61 . Everyone knew Pontiac was faster too. I might rather have the pontiac based on looks . ( i have only1 gm , a 60 buick 225 convert -- it has good brakes!) Plus dodge and plymouth brutally ugly cars in 61 after great 1960 cars. I remeber looking and saying "what happened?" Sales reflect that . Even Fords looked bettrr in61. How much more is a CD or F convert worth than.an E or G ? Hard question, within a 300 club!! Books say not much different --auctions some times say lots differerent .....if you leave rolling it for $ out, due to overall rarity . Lots different. Look at 57 dodge convert or adventurer . 57-58 Adventurer convert may pass all 300 's in value.
Point being get the car you love be happy !! $ does not matter to me either , except you get afraid to drive them . I drove F and J coupes daily in70's , nice used car , cranky in cold . No accidents . Drove almost perfect restoration new paint big buck orange 67 273 cuda convert about 5 days total when a moron in toyota backed right into side of it at doorpillar , while I was stopped in lot, pushed it in a foot. Watch out for silver toyotas and their owners.
If that had been an F convert I would still be speechless. ( sayin somethin there)
