    A somewhat awkward advance towards full-width bodywork, 1930 Stutz rebodied in 1938 by Adolph Schneider of New York:

  7. Oooof ! . . . Well that was rather unfortunate, wasn't it. :confused: And somewhere underneath all that there's a Stutz.

    Looks like it was designed by a committee that started at the front and by the time they got to the taillights they discovered that they'd run out of money and/or ideas. :rolleyes:

    Looks like it was designed for a Fire or Police Chief by someone who designs trucks and emergency equipment! Better in red or black n white?

    This is where Checker got their idea for taillights.

    The taillights are uncharacteristically prominent for the era. Designers were either frank or discreet about taillights at the time; as a rule they didn't celebrate taillights.

    Maybe he was tired of having to have the rear end repaired every week?

    Perhaps a more forthright embrace of the full-width idea would have been better:

    though the high tail makes it look rather pickup-like. With a lower tail and a gentler curve to the rear deck:

    Still satisfyingly weird, but visually a lot more comfortable.

    I'm thinking that the original 1930 version probably looked much better.

    Needs a big wing in the back to help celebrate those tail lights.
