Ford La Galaxie, 1957 - Styled by Elwood Engel
Ford worked its way through many contorted schools of styling such as the Z-back roof (in the 1957 La Galaxie). It went on to become increasingly unhinged as it proposed a nuclear - powered dream car called the Nucleon in 1958, a gyroscopically controlled two-wheeled car called the Gyron in 1961, a three-wheeled flying car called the Volante the same - ear and a vast six - wheeler called the Seattle-ite in 1962.

It should not be surprising that, after that lot. Ford’s design team and the pubic had something of a dream-car hangover, and Dearborn’s output of show specials petered out in the 1960s.

The rear end styling is similar to the Chrysler Turbine, the front to the 61 - 63 "Bullet" Thunderbird's rear. I think all the three is a work of one designer.

Peter Berendi is correct. The designer's name is Elwood Engel. He was also responsible for the crisp, angular, slab-sided styling of the 1961 Lincoln Continental.

This car was actually designed by L. David Ash as part of a Ford program to incorporate modern fashion trends with automobile design. Engel later "borrowed" the front and rear design elements for the Ghia-built Chrysler Turbine cars.

I must say the front grille is rather underwhelming in comparison to the
rest of the car (especially the tail
light surrounds.)
