A few designs that never made it into production cars. And one forgotten gem…
– A design proposal for the 1961 Ford Thunderbird. Where the Thunderbird would have lost all its personality to look more like a weird 2 door version of the Continental.
– A 1970’s Mitsubishi Sapporo. Found in Belgium! These were sold in the US through Plymouth and Dodge.
– This looks like a 2 door wagon version of an old Plymouth Duster. And it seems really cool.
– Another “never happened” wagon: based on a 1970’s Mercedes S Class.

Wow, an S-Class wagon is incredible. Too bad the closest thing is the GLS.
Auto history might not be your thing, Vince:
The ‘61 Continental was originally supposed to be the Thunderbird but Ford management/design bosses (depending upon storyteller) saw it and wanted it for Lincoln.
Several coach-builders did convert S- and E-Klasse Benzes into Estates/Wagons/Kombis.
