This paragraph from an article stuck in my mind and added to my confusion...

This car was like a movie star during its heyday, and was known around the World. It is even more unique in that Walter P. Chrysler Jr, son of the Founder of Chrysler, kept the car and drove it around Detroit. He chose to repaint the car a pastel green and replaced the interior with dark green leather. It was originally a pearl white with red leather. It was seen all about town in Detroit, and everyone knew this car. LeBaron built a custom convertible top for the car, which folded down via an electronic control for raising and lowering the rear cowl to conceal it. This allowed entry in the back seat for passengers.
