I'm not taking anything away from the car, it is NICE! (The area behind the grills needs to be re-colored, don't ya think?)

One other thing is that it "flows" better from front to rear. Doesn't have that tiny fake rear door like most 2 door Cdans of that year.

I think someone took a 54 Coupe and simply raised the roof so the damned thing would be comfortable![}:)]

I think that it is due to two things - lowered and body color headlight rims and taillight assemblies. Also, the removal of vertical seams of rear quarter filler panel helps.
