I like the beige top and plain deck lid but not fond of the wire wheels on a 300. The '60 is my favorite though.

Yes, the wire wheels are inappropriate on a 1961 Chrysler; the “plain deck lid” was the only one available on a 300-G.

Data plate shows this was a heater-only car, so the air conditioning was added. Also coded for a black top.

This one has been in the 300 Club registry for a long time.

The car has equipped with optional power seat, but this option is not coded on the data plate

Actually, I’ve never seen power seat coded on a 300-G data plate. And even though it’s an option, oddly enough I don’t think I’ve ever seen a 300-G without a power seat. I have seen 300-Fs without a power seat

1962 300H has separately adjustment for driver and front passenger.
Does this ‘61 300G have this option too? Or is this power bench seat?

Pretty sure that it isn't a power bench seat. Looks like two separate buckets to me.

Nope, they are indeed connected under the console and the two seats move as one. I think the mechanism, or at least some of it, may literally be the same as the one for a power bench seat, if I remember correctly

Dave: I mean the SINGLE power operated front seat, because 300G brochure says in optional equipment column – a power SEAT, not a power SEATS…

Car looks Really nice. Front seats for F and G are mounted to a common frame and it moves as one just like a bench seat. The console covers it up so you can’t see it. Controls are for driver only. This is for power and manual seats. Manual seat is standard. The only “option” is power seat. The swivel controls are separate on each side and they swivel independently.

Whoever installed the electronic ignition should be fired. It looks terrible tacked on like that. I’m not much for the 26” aftermarket radiator either. Cap gone for washer bag.
