Fleetwood !!

Recommended Posts


^ Yes it IS a 1949 Fleetwood. Chopped,channeled, & lowered, for the heck of it & Harley Earl, the Master of Auto design, this thing actually looks viable today, that shows how far ahead he was in his design work...

...it might scare small pets & children,....but I would drive it !!!

That's awesome. Not gonna lie. That's badass. Good job mdm.

THX...I know it was not easy to say that !!!...but, I think it is too, & none of my doing....I was "possessed" by the spirit of Harley Earl when I did this. LOL.

Once in awhile I can hit the nail on the head....So, Thanks Z.

It doesn't look dated, really. Good job.

The only things I'd do to make it more 2010 would be a different, less curved/bubbled roofline, elimination of the rear wheel skirt, less sloped/curved rear decklid (eliminates "rear end droop"), and making the rear half of the profile flat compared to the front--i.e. using side sculpting to create a similar effect through character lines instead of separate, raised body panels. I'd also integrate the exhaust into the rear bumper and make it body-colored instead of chrome. A larger rear windshield is also a must for visibility.

But honestly, great chop.
