I am not sure whether this would require an act of Congress to be effective.

I imagine Chrysler, and a more than a few lawyers, believe there is no language that would completely relieve Chrysler of liability regarding the release of cars that were never meant to be driven.

I have seen a few of these type of cars at Barret’s Auction (on TV), they have no VIN number and can never be registered. I am fairly certain car manufacturers have the collectors sign waivers, but what happens if a third party is injured–they go after the manufacturer for releasing the cars to the public in the first place. It is unlikely they actually released the cars, and instead gave them as gifts.

The last one I heard about or saw was the Cadillac STS that broke the lap record for coupes at Nürburgring
