The Coronet, and especially the Plymouth Belvedere/Satellite, from about 1966-1969 are some of the laziest and worst looking cars (SUVs inhabit their own vulgar niche) that this country has produced. In one of the best eras of American car design, Chrysler managed to turn out something almost offensively bland. Both the proceeding and following (seen here as the '70) models are good looking, and yet... I understand that Engel was rebelling against some of Exner's rococo excesses, but the opposite of overwrought should not just be a box.

I like Elwood's Continental and the fuselage Chryslers, but those are indeed boxes. Especially the Plymouths...

I like them. And still better looking than any modern counterpart 😉

The Fuselage bodies are exemplars of clean, unadorned design. Proof that he had good designs in him, which makes the mid-late sixties B-Bodies that much more egregious.

They certainly have the sheen of time; seeing one on the street is special. However, if seen among its contemporaries at a car show or cruise, I think the mundanity becomes apparent.

I haven't seen it in person yet, this type of car is even more rare in Europe I guess - even at US car shows. But I will take your word for it
