One of the neatest things for me is doing the research in this hobby and trying to come up with something unique. Of course, just because it is different doesn’t necessarily mean it is better. I am kicking around a couple of ideas and would appreciate any feedback you may have. I love the Outlaw look but more recently I have become attracted to the early cars as well : Gmund Coupes and SL Coupe. Even getting into the early 50’s and their special details. Now that is going to be hard to pull off something like that in my JPS Coupe, but here is the idea: What if they built a 10 year Anniversary model of the Gmund in 59’ ? What styling cues might represent that car without doing a lot of sawzall work.? I could see the bumpers pulled against the body with some added trim between the two. Also, possibly adding the horizontal trim in the front and moving the script to the hood. There has to be performance available so maybe some Vintage 190 wheels (16” would be great!!) wth moon caps, or not. The interior may have a similar steering wheel and a different set of gauges with the visors over them as in the SL. The pics include some of these features.
The other idea is a little simpler. Say they built a Speedster Coupe. Not talking about a chopped top or anything. Adding all the side trim and script. The dash might be trimmed differently as well. Other things I have kicked around are adding more than the usual features from the 550 Spyder (I.e., mirrors, license plate fixture, dashboard, tailights, etc, ). I don’t know, Maybe it’s just the coffee. Anyhow, take a look and if you’ve had your coffee too, let me know what you 🤔.
