    Lovely art, I guess the company didn't have/want to spend the funds needed to produce them. Are there enough details for someone to customize their car should they wish?

              That's why I love the 63's so much better than the 64-66 models. They look like Studes (not Ramblers)

                          I just noticed there appears to be the Packard octagon in the center of the wheel covers.

                            Thanks Richard. Brooks Stevens certainly had a terrific eye for style. And that picture bears that out.

                              I have to say, as much as I like the '63 and '64 hardtop rooflines, I actually like this proposal better. Also, something that caught my eye is that the trim sort of de-emphasizes the taper of the body as it travels from front to rear.
