    Wow,
    I like it!
    The only drawback I see is those little round windows.
    Don't ask me why but those make me think "PIMP" mobile.
    The body style kinda reminds me of the old GTO "judge"
    Wish I had the front bumper off of it to fit onto my 51 fender / 50 center piece combo I'm useing on my 52 2 door hard top.

    NICE!

    Thanks Chris.

    Dean.

      Wow, that is cool! I agree with Mr.Pearson, that window has to go. Thanks for posting!

        Looks like a 1950 Champion on steroids. It almost looks cartoonish also. If Superman drove a car back then, this would have been his ride for sure. [8D]

          Now we know where Ford got the idea for the port hole windows on the early Thunderbird.

            Never seen this one before, They did have the're best sales in 1950, surely they could have afforded to produce this car as a first american sports car. We could have had a Studette to tear up the drag strips with the new V-8.

              I like it. I wonder what a more developed design would have looked like after the engineers got through modifying it. Vent windows would have broken the nice line of the door glass and even a different glass for that port hole would change the look. Sure would have been a sporty car if done right.

                  That's awesome. Would've been a killer in the mid 50s, don't know about 50. Maybe too dramatic.

                      That reminds me of a circa-1947 Delahaye or similar, the postwar iteration of the French prewar art-deco coachbuilt bodies (look up Delage, Bugatti, Talbot-Lago et al). Also makes me think more than a little of a Kaiser-Darrin roadster...Neat piece.

                        When I first looked at that picture, it brought to mind a '73 Monte Carlo like this one:



                        From this angle, the swoop of the tops of the F and R fenders looks similar. Those porthole windows also forshadow the landau roofs of the 70s.
