After switching to unit body construction in 1960 Chrysler capitalized on the glowing reputation of its letter-series Chrysler 300s, adopting 300 as the model name for its premium models in 1963 led by the 300 Sport Series.
A Chrysler 300 Sport Series convertible paced the 1963 Indianapolis 500 mile race, one of only 1,535 built by Chrysler in this rare and distinctive style.
Powered by the 305 horsepower 383 cubic inch V-8, with pushbutton Torqueflite automatic transmission, this example with its Pace Car graphics is beautifully presented in the special V-code Pace Car Blue with white interior and white vinyl top.
It has been fully restored and is equipped with power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, bucket seats, console, full wheel covers and whitewall tires. Its restoration has addressed every aspect of its presentation, from the meticulously restored engine and engine compartment to the gauge-equipped dashboard and elaborate interior.
Available only on the Pace Setter editions was the squared-off steering wheel, one of several unusual steering wheel designs that made 60's Chrysler interiors look like popular images of spacecraft.
Big, comfortable and stylish, with an outstanding restoration, this is a special example of Chrysler's 60's style and flair.
