You guys bring up an interesting point. The second link with the blog post about the photo shoot says its a 300-H that was owned by MGM Studios and had the Marilyn connection. So, I figured they must have some history.
I looked up the original George Barris photos (not that George Barris) of Marilyn with the H and it is definitely not an air car. I'm not 100% sure I can tell the one the museum is definitely an air car but it does sorta look like it.
P.S, I wanted to run those Marilyn+H photos in the club news but they are heavily copyrighted and I received no response regarding permission.
How do they know it's the same car ? It's not even obvious
whether it's a Sport or a 300H.

From the photos
on that site I don't think you can tell if it's an H or a sport.
In the one photo that I have I
can see that the car has electric windows, seat belts, full console, factory
tach and Marilyn sitting in the drivers seat.
So it just may be one of the
123 300H convertibles that were built.
What's the big deal about the right
hand mirrors? They are in the Mopar Accessories catalog. You just couldn't
order one from the factory. Both styles are in the 1961 catalog, even that
'57-style one with a listing back to '57.
isn't that supposed to be a 300-H?
And did you
notice the G and the 62 Sport have factory air ??
notice that the cinnamon G and the turquoise car next to it (C/D) had right
The 1962 Chrysler 300 that Marilyn Monroe
posed in is at "Old Car Heaven " in Birmingham, AL.
Looking at their photos I can see three Chrysler
Are their cars known to the club and do we have
the serial numbers ?
Link to a story that mentions some information
about the white 62 300 convert.
