1962 Chrysler, 300 2-dr hardtop sport coupe, V-8

300 SERIES - (V-8) - The Windsor name was dropped to make room for a Sport Series 300 line. Confusion resulted from this marketing move as buyers associated the 300 name with high-performance and high cost. The exterior appearance of the hardtop (two-door) and the convertible were identical to the letter series 300H save for hubcaps, tires and a tiny 'H' on the rear deck. A four-door hardtop had never before been offered in the letter-series 300 lineup. Even the grille, medallions and side trim were distinguishable at first glance from the higher priced, performance oriented 300H. The Sport Series 300 interiors were upgraded versions of the low-line Newport series.
