Lot #506 - A Chrysler 300 Sport Series convertible paced the 1963 Indianapolis 500 mile race, one of only 1,861 built by Chrysler in this rare and distinctive style. Powered by the 383/205hp V8 with a push-button 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 white wall tires. Its restoration has addressed every aspect of its presentation, from the meticulously restored 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 60s Chrysler interiors look like popular images of spacecraft. Big, comfortable and stylish with an outstanding restoration, this is a special example of Chrysler's 60s style and flair.
