    1. hmm, I was getting some of the Blue Falcons ride design influences. Maybe it's that incredibly huge central ridge

  3. Every now and then some of the cars and concepts from the late 50's and early 60's look like they had a bunch of design cues left over from other projects, and threw them all on one car just to see what corporate would say. That's my pet theory about the 1962 Plymouth Fury; which is such a busy little hodge podge of designs it could have been built up on the clay modeling buck backwards and no one would have been able to tell the difference. Dittos with this one, if they'd have reversed the greenhouse, the massive front end would have made a good rear, and the front could have been turned into a decent front-for and Edsel.

  4. Interesting to note the slight variation in the grille - apparently those full-clay models would have one style on one side of the car, and another style on the other side, to save time having to make two complete cars.
