I have the relinquished the ownership of my 300G. I was needing a cash infusion, due to my recent retirement... I sold today. Totally rust free. I had removed trim for a paint repair and never finished the Job. Please note the dark spots are adhesive sanding pads that protected the body from door dings while parked in the garage. The new owner now has a lifetime battery and alignment. and new leather w/ door panels.

Great car, Rick! On one hand, it must be tough to see it go. On the other - look at how much garage space you have!


and a little cash to get in trouble with!

congrats!


I take it you sold it to the older fella who rolled into the Southglenn Mall in that over-the-top C300? ...it will be treated well!

Mike, You are correct, I had mixed feelings. I talked to him and his daughter about not over-restoring, and driving her. We will see. I drove her for just over eight years, She was a great ski bunny! I also enjoyed driving a 300G I bought for parts, for years, after her. I finally Junked the last one due to rust and cracked and collapsed stub frame issues. Just to find out some one had resurrect the old VIN. Funny thing I still have the original title to that G.

Love those 413's! It must be nice to still have contact with the car.

Tell your friend/new owner to not use those exhaust manifold gaskets. He risks breaking the outer ears off the castings. Ask me how I know.
Just need nice flat surfaces and some exhaust putty.

Steve.

I will advise the new owners, of your suggestion. They will be visiting this afternoon. The exhaust manifold gaskets came with the new gasket kit I supplied with the 300G.
I have used this style with the heat shield for decades with no problems. I installed many sets, I was a fleet mechanic for over forty years. I have seen broken manifolds,
very few on Chrysler products. Post Script...'Slant six exhaust manifolds in van and pick up trucks, come to mind, no big block.'

He did not paint the Chrysler,' I think it's the same guy that painted John Quinn's 59 Belvie'... But they do Just about everything else.
