I, too, would put the Chrysler Atlantic at or near the top of my list, naperlou. It's such a great-looking car, I can't believe they never produced it. Seems like it could have had a life as a small-volume, premium vehicle.

Kind of reminds you of the Paris runway fashions...... Some really strange ideas that you will never see on the street.

The Peugeot design won my vote as the most imaginative.  Gotta love those big wheels.

Reminds me of Fisher Body Craftsman's Guild

Ah, this reminds me of my high school years in the '60s when I entered the Fisher Body Craftsman's Guild annual competition. The nationwide contest was sponsored by General Motors (then the world's biggest corporation). It was open only to boys (don't try that today) and the idea was to design and build a futuristic model car to 1/12 scale. Entries were judged on design and craftsmanship. Every state had a 1st, 2nd, 3rd place winner in Junior and Senior division. Then there were 20 regional awards in each division and 40 of us got $750 and an all-expenses-paid trip to Detroit (I flew Braniff on a TWA Constellation) where we toured GM styling studios and testing grounds and cool industrial dreamworks. We saw "How the West Was Won" in amazing new Cinerama.  I entered five times and got state awards each time and regional award once in 1965.  The national awards were presented at the regional awards banquet and included scholarships of $1000 to $5000. Even my school got a huge trophy for my regional award and the principal held a special assembly to present it.

Do a search on Fisher Body Crafsman's Guild to see pictures of many of the entries and dreams of young boys in the 1960s.

Chuck, there are some wild machines in there.  Some are just wierd.  Others are fantastic.  My vote for cars that should have been produced are the Ford GT90 (the Ford GT LeMans cars were always my favorites), the Chrylser Atlantic and th Mustang Milano.  Wild stuff.
