RE: [Chrysler300] White 1962 300 Convertible that Marilyn Monroe posed in.





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.

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.

Also, isn't that supposed to be a 300-H?

Did anyone notice that the cinnamon G and the turquoise car next to it (C/D) had right hand mirrors?

The 1962 Chrysler 300 that Marilyn Monroe  posed in is at "Old Car Heaven " in Birmingham, AL.

 

 

Link to the car.

 

 

Looking at their photos I can see three Chrysler 300 convertibles.

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.
