The 1961 Rambler Sedanca deVille by Park Ward.
Ha ha ha! We have a winner!!
LOL Gotta agree there! ^^^^^^
The two-tone makes it.
(That parking brake's a little crude for a nice Buick.)
That's perfect, well, naw, it needs a little altitude adjustment to make it purrfect
A truly odd little car. It's shape does not like to be tampered with.
If anyone has time I would like to see the '50 Buick grill on my '47 Ford, before I go to far with the idea. Thanks in advance.
Uuuhhh, just because you can, don't mean you should
I dunno', I kinda' like the '60s vibe it has going on. Maybe a wheel swap would seal the deal.
I LIKE IT! Now to find a grill. ☺
Thank you Moose, thats just what I wanted it to look like.
I'm thinking that if the bumper/grille were moved up about 2 inches, and the Ford parking lights eliminated and parking lights were put in the Buick bumper guards, it would be quite attractive and unique (or not?).
Good idea. Thanks.
Let's have a look....
Here's a bit if a different vibe....
So this ended up a little different.
@James D Reminds me of Patrick Van der Stricht's "Car-i-Cature" illustrations in the Kanter catalogs.
That's even better, it looks like it was built that way. Thanks so much. BigO
James D.... You win.
Can something, anything be done to this?
This body Mopar has the nice roof slope that the others lack, but I always thought the roofs seem disporportionately long. Here's my version with a chop, slanted B pillars and a bunch of roof length eliminated. Involves sinking the trunklid between the rear fenders.
I did this one awhile ago, George Cerny style.
I lowered the car and chopped the top just enough to improve the flow by angling the fastback 2°. I lengthened the rear fenders to cover the odd intersection at the trunk. Door handles shaved, slight hood for the headlights. The side trim is borrowed from the ’55 Plymouth Belvedere with a dark blue beneath to break up the slab sides.
