It's funny how cars are marketed in tv and movies. How about "Get Smart"? It was sponsored by Chrysler and every car was a Chrysler product, with him in a Sunbeam Tiger (sold by Chrysler). The Buick takes the sponsorship and he's in an Opel GT and the bad guys are in Electra 225s!





What are these?

Brian

Hey BB I posted a while ago maybe you missed it or responded and I just don't remember but I am looking for some styling studio photos of the Chevy AD (1947-54) pickup. I had an Collectible Automobile mag a few years ago with a bunch of great styling changes they had thought of with different grilles and such and can't find this mag, you have any idea where I can get those photos?

Yes it's your floor.

I FOUND IT!! Whoo HOO! I found the magazine, I knew I wouldn't have tossed it. What kills me is it was right in front of me the whole time. Well, it was up in the attic but I go up there all the time and it was right there with me going past it over and over.

There are some Chuck Jordan drawings.



And how about this "Cameo" look?



I love this stuff.

Brian

They are motor mount adapters from a factory built car.

Brian this stuff is great. My vote is for #5 although in some respect maybe a little to Studebakerish? Number 7 looks to much like a International and# 8 looks to Fordish. I like the side garnish on the top left "Cameo"

Well I got part of it right. The rubber portion is gone from the plate. The ribbing looks Datsun or Toyota. Dodge Slant 6?

No rubber piece missing, these ARE adapters, the mounts bolt to them and then to the motor. What did they come from?


Brian

edit: I'm sorry they do have a piece of the motor mount still bolted to them with the rubber missing that is what you are seeing. They are one piece of forged metal.

There are some other drawings and clay mockups too. Notice they call the one "Cameo" in the lower right the "Chevrolet Express".

Nope, think about where an engine swap was done, where the car wasn't made for the motor.
