Remember the "Clam shell" rear doors on seventies wagons? Click here to see the madness
I remember seeing these in the showroom at Turner Buick where my dad worked. They were a NIGHTMARE even new! The alignment problems started before they were delivered. They were such a failure I don't ever remember even seeing one in person outside of those brand new ones on the showroom floor!
I bought a 74 full size Buick wagon with the clam shell, got it cheap because the thing was inop. I did get it working but ended up with the headliner mostly out and laying in the back of sealed up junkers to get parts in the 100 degree summer. It was coolness. I like the concept.
