1957+ and Chrysler-powered. I think it's known as Dual-Ghia Convertible.

The convertible was sold from 1956-58. A coupe was sold from 60-63. The convertibles were final assembled in Detroit and the coupes were built completely in Italy. They were popular in Hollywood. They were owned by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Lucile Ball, etc. built in small numbers, 104 convertibles, 26 coupes.

Dean Martin drove this one in the movie. Wonder if it was his personal car?
