    Another Stevens original. Does it look better than the actual Wagonaire?

    I think it has a better front windshield. On the wagon prototype the wondshield is part of the roof, where on this rendering there is metal there. As for the roof line, I think it is a much better look.

      Here's what I mean. Look at the top of the windshield.

        Well, we can see the genesis of the Wagonaire's beveled rear roof lip, and the idea for those taillights, although they wound up in a different location. I don't think the abrupt side trim treatment would have flown - I like the production version much better.

          To me, it looks very close to a 1963 Wagonaire with 1964 bumpers.

            I'm prejudice, but I think the production Daytona side trim on the 1963 Wagonaire was the best of all 4 years.
