1960 Chrysler convertible

How's this for a head turner, and in a swivel seat, you can look back without turning your head. Yes, once upon a time, car companies mixed up very pretty colors. And have a good look at that instrument panel. Push button automatic transmissions were, of course, standard. I inherited my family's 1964 Plymouth, the last year for buttons, and loved demonstrating them for everyone who got in the car. In the Doris Day/James Garner movie Move Over, Darling, Doris is confused by 'all the buttons' in Garner's Imperial and ends up putting the top down in a car wash by accident. Well, just look at all those buttons. Who wouldn't be confused?
