Never heard of it. What an interesting car. Thanks for sharing it.
That came about at an interesting time. 1957 was kind of peak, over cooked Detroit design, in my opinion. The designs were over the top, but a lot were really cool.
Come 1958 with the quad headlights and they were all over cooked, and really gaudy.
The simpler lines is what became standard in the early to mid '60's; and here was this in 1961.
