The Chrysler 300G was the last three hundred to wear Virgil Exner's fins. Major differences from the previous year's model included a new front end with canted quad headlamps and a new rear treatment, which lacked the fake continental spare of the 300F. Both engines used ram induction with the high performance engine using shorter length induction tubes.

Here are some great shots of a 300G Hardtop owned by Brad and Marilyn Teets. Enjoy.
