“Originally, we based a lot of the ideas on a Delahaye and the LeBaron-bodied cars and things like that. We kind of mixed and matched. We picked pieces of things we liked and started to design a car from scratch. Two-thirds of the way through the process, we realized we unknowingly built something very Packard-ish. So then we embraced that idea, but most of it’s coach-built.”
