Never made versions

Hi all, ever wish they made a convertible of this car? Or a pickup version of that vehicle? Well I have, and in May 2014 just recently began photochopping profile images of classic and modern vehicles into never-made versions out of my own curiosity before knowing others were doing similar.

Here's a few example images to start with from my collection of various production vehicles edited into never-made versions, that perhaps should have been.
C&C welcomed.

1967 Mercury Cougar edited into fastback version.

2006 Chevrolet HHR edited into a pickup version.

1970 Pontiac GTX edited into a Sport Wagon version.

2013 Ford F250 4dr SuperDuty pickup edited into 8-passenger COE version maintaining original bed and wheelbase


Got similar edits? Feel free to add your own "What if.." never made versions here in profiles, quarter-views, or digital renderings as long as it looks realistic. Please..no wheel-swapping aftermarket bodykit type images. Keep vehicles here limited to the premise of appearing as an additional version potentially produced alongside the original.

I like the lines on the Cougar. Probably would have made a nice car.

Popular Hot Rodding magazine showed that same type Cougar turned Sportsroof photoshop about 4-5 years ago, in a pseudo-fastback/shoulda-built story.

They also had in progress shots of someone making that conversion using the repro '67-68 Fastback Mustang conversion kit that is currently available for Mustang coupes. The builder had it about 1/2 way done but I have never seen the finished pictures of it. Their rendering was Wimbledon White w/Dark Blue GT Mustang type stripes on it.

Man, that Ford COE is an ugly sucker.

Roof not quite long enough on the HHR conversion IMO, look at the side jump door line in body that is farther back than roof line. Extend roof and shorten box to get a extended cab/short box look.

Lots of mid-late 60's cars should have had 2-door wagon version IMO...Chevelle(which did in '64-65, but no later) and other A-body's, Fairlane/Torino, '66-67 Nova, Falcon, Maverick, Valiant/Duster/Dart.

Cool seeing what you've done, post up more

Raise the super curious roof to be straight all the way back and you might have something. Right now Ford wouldn't be able to give that thing away.

1- The Cougar - I added '69 Mustang rear window louvers and wing, but I hadn't seen anything like it before and had just wondered; why not...
2- Yeah, the COE is ugly but intended as utilitarian for carrying larger family with camper or trailer, or for larger work crew. I've always liked the older 50's cab-overs or "snub-nose" trucks and just wondered what it might look like with a modern truck. I may try a Dodge next with thier retro style hoodlines.
3- There is no third door intended on the HHR, the rear door jam line is still original and that third line is supposed to be the separation of the bed. ...And I actually have a '72 Duster Demon pickup / el camino version, but it's from a lesser quality original and I left it as such after altering the vehicle for direct comparison to the original image.
4- THANKS for the opinions, I really do appreciate them!!

Ooops!! D'oh...it won't let me correct it either. I had just posted an edited '70 GTO 2dr wagon on another site so I must've had Pontiac on the brain at the time.

Yeah, I had thought about that too to avoid the stair step look. On a profile chop of this COE idea I had made previous to this, I added a roof rack to fill in that passenger roof area in a bit better. This was only my second attempt at editing a quarter view image so direct proportions may be a bit off.

Thanks again everyone, sometimes the best way to learn is from peer critique.

ericnova72, Here's the '72 Dodge Duster Demon I mentioned edited into a pickup version.. or 'Ute' as some may call this style. The photo quality is low but worked for my intent at the time.


And here's a profile version of the F250 COE done prior to the quarter view version.

Pontiac never produced a GTX, but Plymouth did!

I apologize for the mixup in labeling the earlier Plymouth GTX as a Pontiac... it's because I had just previously posted this one somewhere else; '71 Pontiac GTO 2dr Wagon edited from a 4dr wagon, and also an El Camino version. Photo quality is low but it worked for my intent at the time.

Here's a few other previous profile chops...

2012 Lincoln MKX edited into a pickup version.


2014 Toyota 4Runner edited into a 2-seater version with wheelbase shortened similar to Jeep CJ.


2015 Chevrolet Colorado pickup edited into a low profile version.


Thanks for looking!
C&C welcomed.
