    chevrolet???? rescue/towtruk 1964

    I realize that this is an old thread, but that's no Chevy or GMC. The general cab and hood shape is more like a '56 Dodge, but then again they didn't have quad headlights, let alone canted quads.

    Chrysler PT Cruiser Coupe Concept Patent Drawings (2002)

    In short, the PT Cruiser developed from the Pronto. I like the Pronto coupe design better than the Pronto sedan concept that preceded it. That one lacked the "retro" styling cues that the coupe and PT's have. A more recent concept gave the PT a strange fastback roofline that I'm not...

    ZIS 112 Coupe (1952)

    Actually, more like GM's 1951 "LeSabre" concept car.

    Cool. I've seen pictures of this car, but not these illustrations.

    ZIS 101 (1936)

    At this point it appears I have found more drawings for the ZIS cars than Packards. :-D I think the chassis are nearly identical...just dimensions may vary by a few mm either way. There are hearse and ambulance brochures (Henney body,Packard chassis) from this period that may be of some help...

    ZIS 101 (1936)

    From what I've gathered through reading and observation of photos, there really isn't much other than a strong resemblance between the ZIS-110s and Packards. Although the mechanicals bear a strong Packard resemblance, no parts will interchange. The Packard Club has discussed this at some...

    ZIS 101 (1936)

    I have come across that wikipedia article, and I wonder what they mean by "inspired". :-)

    ZIS 101 (1936)

    Definitely not a Packard. I'm not sure it's neccessarily a direct copy of any particular make. Here's another illustration, with a different year's grille.

    Buick (1957)

    It seems to me brochure illustrations (particularly of '50s American cars) drawn to correct proportions are not very common. If anything, this type of illustration exaggerated vehicle size. Even photographs from this time can be similarly distorted.
