The 300G is a beautiful car and the red one in the above photos comes from a Hemmings blog of 2015 in which many folks who know these cars have weighed in. Among them are Andy V, who is an accomplished student of the letter cars (actually a teacher). You may want to read the comments there.
So now I know that 300C had my car, loved it as I do and parted with it only due to a well above market offer he couldn't refuse. He and I have been in touch - like finding an previously unknown relative.
So 300C and I can take credit for what you see here...more photos.
Dan, thanks for the compliments, they are well appreciated...to one and all I do say this: There's a lesson or two to be learned from this episode. Yup, I sold the F just 3 days after completing a laundry list of work on the F and getting it on the road. The car was spotted at a local show by a gent of means, he hounded me for three more days, and then, after I called 11 car people & all but one said to sell the F for the "then and now" ridiculous offer made to me. I sold the car; I rolled that money (and more) into fully restoring a 1964 Shriner Imperial Crown convertible. (The Imperial was later featured in the March 2017 AACA Journal and is now, like my 300C, an AACA Senior Grand National winner.) I regretted selling the F from that first day forward and seeing the pix Dan has posted is a sad reminder of my folly....nothing less. I didn't need the money; I didn't want to sell the car but I did and there's no looking back. The upside is meeting Dan here on this great site and knowing that the car has been taken to yet another level of workmanship. Dan knows cars!!! Knowing that the F is in the care of another car nut actually mollifies my regret. Lesson? Don't chase the cash if you like what you have. Dan and I have since chatted a lot and we'll connect as soon as the current health situation calms. We're only a few hours from each other and he has graciously offered me the chance to visit and even drive his F. I did eventually purchase a very beautiful 300G and while I love my G, which drives as well as the F, it doesn't quite have the visual appeal to me that the F does. I think the boomerang tail lights really define those 1960 models. However, I chose the G just because it's something else to appreciate. And driving the G beats driving my 300C for a lot of reasons, though my C, in black, IMHO, is a really sharp look. Bob/300C
