The mission here was to design a car that idealized 1955-1957 styling cues. 1950-1954 is too rounded and mundane, 1958-1959 is too excessive and gaudy, especially with the quad headlamps that many automakers used. ‘55-’57 scores a nice balance in terms of 1950s car design, all in my opinion.
Inspiration: The space-age landyachts of the mid ‘50s, like Oldsmobile 98, Pontiac Star Chief, Cadillac Eldorado, Buick Roadmaster
So the basic shape is there, now I need some details, imaginary specs, and a name.
The sides look a bit too boxy, the entire car looks a bit too tall, and the seats inside looks a bit cramped for the car’s great length, from the outside at least.
Length: 5,750 mm = 226.4 in. = ~18.9 feet
Wheelbase: 3,300 mm = 129.9 in. = ~10.8 feet
Width: 1,957 mm (see what I did there?) = 77 in. = ~6.4 feet
Height: 1,525 mm = 60 in. = 5 feet
