1. Chrysler Newport Parade Phaeton

Chrysler was awarded the pace car title for the 1941 Indy 500 race. But since it wasn’t the first Mopar they chose for pace car duty, Chrysler wanted to make it special in the form of a one-off Newport Parade Phaeton Convertible. It had a 145 HP straight-six engine that provided enough power to lead the first race in front of a grid full of racing cars.
