Yes, but my body guy looked at it and it's an easy fix for this talented guy. He has built entire quarters for cars and complete bedsides for a sweptside 58 pickup from scratch He's the best around. Just a minor annoyance. Glad it's in as good a shape as it is!From the photo, it looks like the lower quarters are rusted.
Several parts ie. Hubcaps, are wrapped up in paper and in boxes in the trunk.
Hate that toilet seat trunk lid!
Thanks for the comment.I estimtate that you will end up loving the F styling more than the G. The styling is just cleaner IMO. While I like the front end styling of the both the G and H (which are nearly identical), the F is just a perfect marriage of sport and elegance to me. I have both the F and the H, so I get to look at them nearly every day. And the tail lights in the F just seem more natural and a perfect compliment to the front styling. The G appears to have a chrome fin plug at the end rather than a boomerang red tail light lens that is so cool to me at least. But having said that, I really love my 1961 New Yorker 2 door coupe as well - they are all out of the ballpark styling efforts (that one is white with a red interior and has a/c). But that one still awaits it restoration, while my H is fully restored and my F is original and will stay that way.
Since you don't like the fake spare tire deck lid, just replace it with one from a G or a 60 New Yorker.
I also like red, even though mine is white too.......................
You have a lot of work ahead of you, but it is very complete and the absence of a/c will make the job significantly easier. And a good body guy such as you have lined up will take care of that rust well, I am confident.
Enjoy and I look forward to seeing the restoration.

Based on that information, I'd have no idea what it's value would be. There are two 300 clubs that you can find on the internet. They have people with the Expertise to give you an idea of the value, but they would need pictures and more detailed information.There is one here in Ohio. Same color, engine combo. He says he has been offered 10,000.00 for the motor alone. It needs a total resto. Its half exposed to the elements. Sad. What do you think its worth?

It's hard to believe he was offered that much for the motor.
A complete 413 crossram motor was on ebay a while back for $5,000 or best offer
I'm no expert on these cars by any means. I've read a lot about them, but this is the first one I've owned. Plan on being knee deep in this one soon!
Plan to join. Don't think I can make that particular meet. I'm working in Florida and don't know when I'll make it back up there just yet.That is a terrific score ya got there. The '60 300F is THE letter car to own. I like the 'G' too, but for some reason, the sixty is more desirable. If you haven't already, you should join the Chrysler 300 Club, Intl ( CHRYSLER 300 CLUB INTERNATIONAL, INC. ). My wife and I joined this group about six years ago. They know everything there is to know about Chrysler letter cars and they have really great meets twice a year. BTW, they are having a meet in Greenville, SC in April. Since you are in WV, that would be a good time to come and check them out in person. I'd be happy to introduce you around. Of course, if yer already a member. . . Never mind. . .

I was a member of the club back in the late seventies and early eighties. Kids and family took presidence then.
Fortunately, I can do a lot of the work myself and have a friend in the business of restoring forward look cars that I can lean on. His name is Benny Buckner. You may have heard of him.
Robndi43I sealed the deal on an easily restoreable 1960 Chrysler 300F today!
I have always wanted a finned, crossram car, and now that dream has come true.
Really wanted the '61 G as that's my preference, but the '60 F makes me pretty happy too!
Car is complete, complete, complete!!
Has set for about 30 years in a dry storage garage. No rust, to speak of, in floors, trunk or undercarriage.
Biggest problem is the motor is locked from setting so long. I can fix that.
Can't wait to get it home!!
