I can only imagine what kind of mess there would be when this friggin afterbirth is hit on the side!

No, sorry, I think this was like "Ear deoderant" that was test marketed a few years ago. They developed something trying to create a need.

How would you get out if you were to crinkle the doors.......as far as the "ear deodorant" I just did a little q-tip test....there is ABSOLUTELY NO NEED FOR IT....of course my ears might just not stink

That's how I know how it works, because the ebay listing had pics of the underbelly, and pics of the mechanisms etc.
I saw the ebay listing & ran a patent search on the numbers and they're still owned by the original design firm, which was Joalto Design Inc. of Detroit, MI

The original 1954 Kaiser.
These doors go inside the front fenders.

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.
