I used to find these '62 Tempest / LeMans ugly.
A buddy had a rough one, with a Chevy drivetrain, and it grew on me a bit.
The one below is a fully-restored, 87K mile car, and it's looking pretty cheeky to my eye. I could run it.

1957 exercise for the '60 DeSoto. That body line / sculpting is just high art. Throw a '61 Chrysler 300-esque nose on, with canted headlights and a trapezoid grille, and I'm all over it like wallpaper cement  :

I had sooooo wanted to post a 1955 Chieftain when I posted the Buick pic a couple of days ago. I just ran out of steam. I have been tired from work these past few days.  I was just too lazy to search for the perfect picture of one. But then Balthy posted the front end.  

Great minds think alike.

So Ill do Balthy, myself and the car some justice right now.
