As well regarded as this car is in classic car circles they were always dowdy looking. This one is not bad but it is still kind of stiff. I would take it if it was offered, though!! :D

it's weird that my brain knew what the maker was, I just had to find the year and model.

it really is a valid competitor to the other luxury car builders of that time.

They were a dealer option on quite a few cars that Harry has posted, along with the fuzzy black radiator badge and mascot!

"Stately" would be many Rolls Royce sedans or the Duesenberg Murphy Limo like the Monogram kit. A-C-D, Packard, Cadillac and many others had great designers. I think most Classic car connoiseurs would agree.

It does have a certain stateliness to it. Rather than "dowdy", I'd call it conservative, as this make of car found few buyers in more flamboyant areas of the country. As such, it definitely has the looks of a car built for the Upper Midweat, or for a client residing somewhere between say, Washington DC and Boston.

Something to bear in mind: With perhaps the exception of the two largest makers of Classic Era luxury cars, just about every other super luxury carmaker back in the era of this one built only the chassis, engine, and supplied identifier parts such as radiator, fenders & running boards and lights. The body shells tended to be stylied by the various coachbuilders themselvs, rather than the factory.

Agreed. "Conservative" describes it well.

I mean, how much more conservative can you get than a color scheme consisting of two shades of gray? ^_^

Amazing, isn't it, how many cars came with that "mascot and badge blackout" package... :lol:

Would Fifty Shades of Grey be considered conservative?
