Maybe it's worth pointing out that the 210 Fleetline is a clone of a concept that Chevrolet produced in 1957[?]. To gauge the public's reaction to not having any trunk space.

I like it.

I like it too, but rather disappointed with the Aero-Template overlay's lack of conformity.

I think it's the concept I like, not the actual execution. Although I still find it to be a handsome automobile.

The earlier GM fastbacks were too fast also.Their sales weren't strong either

The Lincoln Cosmopolitan fastback was referred to as a 'beached whale'.It was axed after 2-years.

I had a 1950 Chevy fastback long ago as my second used car. I suspect it fits the template in a similar manner.

I think we discussed this a few years ago, poor C of D because of underbelly.

Chevrolet Aerovette Concept | AmcarGuide.com


Still looks the part.

Yes,it's somewhere.My parents owned one when I was very young.My mom and I saw a very nice Nash restoration in Marfa,Texas on a trip to the Rio Grand.Beautiful car.A local guy had one and offered it for $ 5,500.I let it pass.
I looked all the way through the Photobucket library.It never got scanned.
I do remember that the Airflyte's roofline was pseudo-Jaray,a bit aggressive in contour,like so many.

I used the tool. It was a low-res original so It was hard to find the crown in the roof, but it appears there is a fairly straight section 2-3ft long centered on the B-pillar. Then it drops off about as fast as it's contemporaries.

I found the 'work-in-progress' drawing in my rat's nest of an 'office'.She's been photo-enlarged to fit the template and de-cluttered from the original online image.I'll try and have it ready for this coming Saturday.
