Re: [Chrysler300] 300G

Good point, Ron. The club does not certify cars. The closest thing would be a car that is concours judged at a meet. Day-of-show we can say what it was that day.

From what I understand, though I have not seen the paperwork, the VIN of this car was established to have been equipped with a manual transmission. There is also allegedly a 
code suggesting it was a press car. Unless someone proves otherwise, my theory is that it was one of the several 300-Gs in the New York press launch, coverage of which we reprinted in News-Flite 146.

As Don pointed out, to suggest there is any direct "Daytona" or "race" connection to this car is false. The manual transmission was a new-for-1961 Heavy Duty unit used for many years after in many vehicles, not a specifically "high performance" or "race" transmission. The '61 race cars had that transmission, but so did some standard 300-Gs like this one.

The thing that bothers me is the statement that it's been Certified by Chrysler 300 Club International. Unless it has, then this not only is misrepresentation, but also smears the club as certifying a non-original car. I think someone from the club should call BJ and ask that the statement be removed.

It doesn’t even have short rams, and they are touting the top speed as “150 plus”. No one in there right mind would spend 1/2 million on a restoration of a car that’s not worth a fraction of that.
