Vintage PR Shot: 1959 Scimitar All-Purpose Sedan Designed By Brooks Stevens – Edsel Wasn’t The Only One

I’ve put forth the argument that the Edsel’s problem was not its vertical grille, but simply because it was the wrong car at the wrong time. There were other concepts around at the same time, most notably the Packard Predictor. And Brooks Stevens was an exponent too, with this “All-Purpose Sedan” (aka: station wagon). It sat on a 1959 Chrysler New Yorker chassis, and the body was built by Reutter.
