The JFK killing in Dallas is the event of the year.

The first emission controls are mandated.

Chevrolet introduces a new line of smaller cars, the Chevy II.

GM produces its 75,000,000th US-made vehicle (March 14 ).

Tilt steering is optional in General Motors cars.

Alfred P. Sloan's book, My Years With General Motors, is published.

Chrysler offers the industry's first 5 year or 50,000 mile warranty on drive train components.
This year Chrysler purchases 40 percent of the shares of the Spanish car company Barreros.

In 1963, under Love's leadership, Chrysler introduces the Chrysler Turbine Car, designed by Ghia. The vehicle is powered by a turbine engine, similar to today's jet engines. Only 50 of the vehicles are manufactured for consumer research and testing. The Turbine Car never goes into full production, but the research results will be incorporated into defense vehicle technology. The Federal government allowed the Turbine Car's bodies (hand built in Italy by Ghia) into the country on a visa for five or six months. Chrysler would not pay the duty if they destroy them before the visa expired. They could have shipped them back to Italy but... perhaps for economic reasons, most end up as blast furnace food.

May 1: Arjay Miller is elected Company President of the Ford Motor Co.

Here is a short history of the Chrysler Turbine Car.
Chrysler's chief engineer of research and development, George Hubner, started the Turbine Cars Project in 1954.
These experimental engines have been mounted on dream cars and on normal bodies, for long term driving tests, and the evolution of the research proceeded constantly for nearly ten years.
In 1963 the Chrysler Corporation built over 50 gas turbine-powered cars. Incredibly, they then lent them (free of charge) to normal citizens to drive for three months each, with comments and feedback encouraged at the end of the period.
So, almost 40 years ago, a number of people in the US were literally driving jet cars around on public roads - taking them to the supermarket, commuting to work, and probably parking them at drive-ins! And these weren't just 'pretend' jet cars, they were the real thing. Engines revving at speeds of up to 48,000 rpm and with exhaust gas temperatures of 2800 degrees Celsius. They were certainly the only cars on the road that had tachos going to 60,000 rpm.
Released to the press in New York on May 14, 1963, the Chrysler Turbine Car used a body produced by Ghia with mechanicals made by Chrysler. Except for the revolutionary driveline, the rest of the car aped typical US contemporary car practice. But that jet-like exhaust note (said by some to have been deliberately left loud) was like no other family car on the block...
The Fed. government allowed the bodies (hand built in Italy by Ghia) into the country on a VISA for five or six years. Chrysler would not pay the duty if they destroyed them before the VISA expired. They could have shipped them back to Italy buts as the clip (below) taken for the Federals shows, most ended up as blast furnace food between 1967 and 1969.
