As always, some absolutely incredible images… I am awe struck…
Really enjoyed loooking at the images Gary.
31/31 is a photo of a 1/4 scale model Jaguar XJ-S (they called it the F type at the time)styling proposal by British Designer Oliver Winterbottom.
I believe it dates from the early 70’s.
He later worked as design director for Group Lotus , TVR and in the mid to late 80’s was working at the Oldsmobile studios in Michigan and was responsable for the euro style “Touring” styling touches.
In regards to image #11/31: That was drawn by Alex Tremulis on June 12, 1951 while he was at Kaiser-Frazer. He called it the Kaiser TurboDyne. Here’s a picture of it with its skin on:
The doors were to roll down like a roll-top desk. Front-wheel drive, powered by a turbine engine. Right around that same time, here he is at K-F with a very similar proposal on the drawing board. If only…
A fantastic set. Thank you Steve. The Tremulis pics are fantastic.
slide #2 is a late-sixties/early seventies proposal for the Chrysler e-body (Cuda/Challenger). From what I recall, the clown suit car in the photo is red wrap and a finished version was created and finished in a lime gold. Prety radical piece for its time.
