Those are great shots of MM & the white ’62 Chrysler 300 convertible. It looks like she is enjoying the photo shoot even through the venue is not that great. http://tinyurl.com/nmz5bdd She died 8/5/62 at age 36 in the other Brentwood so the car would have been one from the current model year at the time of the shoot..
In 1963 there was a short cameo appearance of Jerry Lewis driving a carmel 1962 Chrysler 300 convertible in the movie “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad Mad World.” http://pics.imcdb.org/0is593/playlist020110718154634.703.jpg Others have judged that car to be a Sport as there appears to be a portion of the center of the front bench seat showing.

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.
