Oooops ...Sorry.The maximum opening of those doors is rather small. And impossible to install on a saloon.Plus the cars that I saw in real had traces of friction and wear on the outside of those doors, not really elegant, and unacceptable for a car of that price. I suppose this was enough not to make a new experience.See the suffering doors :http://dealeraccelerate-all.s3.amazonaws.com/dragers/images/4/0/40/2165_24964e60a3_low_res.jpghttp://dealeraccelerate-all.s3.amazonaws.com/dragers/images/4/0/40/2169_4e4c7bdf4a_low_res.jpghttp://dealeraccelerate-all.s3.amazonaws.com/dragers/images/4/0/40/2176_226b132a70_low_res.jpg
Thanks Lodu. I'm referring to the "sliding door into the fender"
Lots of reasons, papasmurf. Two years before the vette, it was the first fiberclass body. It was an expensive car, and it was said that the small grille looked like a cat's asshole. Not very gracious. Most of all, the great car makers wanted Kaiser to go out of the market, and they achieved that goal a few years later.
interesting door system. great for small parking spots. I wonder why it didn't catch on??
