Re: [Chrysler300] 300G

Hi Pete,

281 is the 1961 floor mounted 3 speed. 

This "Press Car" was shown at the Macungie Meet. It was supposedly used to represent and advertise the Gran Turismo Gs at automotive shows but had standard 300-G trimmings with only the 281 three speed and did not have the water heated 400 HP engine racing goodies. 

A physician who is a Club member bought it at auction. Guess he is trying to sell it now. 

It has the standard exhaust heated 300-G 375 HP engine set up. 

It does not have a 1961 alternator. 

It is a "beautiful" car.

Hey Group:
    What is a "Factory code 281?"  Aside from the rest of the garbage in the description, does that 281 actually signify anything of importance.  As far as the rest of it goes, I guess we can all agree that, unless someone is nuts, $500,000 was NOT put into that car, and we can all bet that it ain't going to get to 150mph, even with a really big tail wind. 
    I agree with Ron, however, that someone should contact Barrett-Jackson and ask that the reference to club certification of any type be removed.

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.
