A mechanically very sophisticated car. This body style was in mid run, and 1963 would be the last year for the style. Note the hash marks in the rear quarterpanels..next year they would be in the doors. Note the convertible top lowered into the trunk cavity. I'm sure luggage space was limited by this somewhat, but probably not as much as those cars where the steel top folded into the trunk When sitting in those seats, you felt surrounded by the instrument panel...a veritable cockpit. The very large tailights completed the rocket/airplane feel!
