For 1962's 300H, the fins were gone. New management at Chrysler decided that it was time to remove Virgil Exnerís styling cues from the lineup.
The 300H also now shared the smaller platform of the Newport line.
Both 413ís received a 5 HP boost, and the 300 pound weight savings of the smaller wheelbase gave the 300H the best power to weight ratio of any of the letter cars. Under the hood of the 300H the standard cross ram intake was gone, and there was a return to the inline dual 4-barrel carb setup of the 300E. With a slight power boost and a 300 lb lighter body, the 300H was faster than the 300G.
