Scimitar Town Car Phaeton — Фаэтон со съемной крышей
Scimitar Hardtop Convertible — Кабриолет с жестким верхом
Scimitar All-Purpose Sedan — Cедан на все случаи жизни, а точнее универсал или вагон, как принято называть подобные кузова в Соединенных штатах
Три прототипа с алюминиевыми кузовами, творение рук известного промышленного дизайнера Брукса Стивенса (Brooks Stevens). Автомобили создавались в качестве рекламы корпорации Olin Aluminum и демонстрировались в 1959 году на Женевском автосалоне.

Название автомобиля Scimitar (Ятаган) обыгрывалось изгибавшимся по боковине кузова контрастным элементом.

Кузова были изготовлены немецкой компанией Reutter из Штутгарта. Платфомой послужил Chrysler New Yorker. Так как основной упор делался на производственную и дизайнерскую необычность кузова, механическая начинка на 100 процентов соответствовала оригиналу и не претерпела изменений.


Scimitar Station Wagon/All-Purpose Sedan — Famed auto designer Brooks Stevens created three Scimitar models for dispay at the 1959 Geneva Auto. The other two models were a Hard-Top Convertible and a Town Car Phaeton. All three cars were built on a 1959 Chrysler New Yorker Chassis. The cars received great attention and acclaim.

The cars were financed by Olin Aluminum and extensive use of the lightweight metal was used to construct the car. The silver-appearing areas are anodized, brushed aluminum. The car’s name is derived from the Scimitar shape, clearly evident in the upward sweep from the lower front fender to the top of the rear fender.

The cars were never produced or offered for sale. This car is on display at the National Automobile Museum in Reno, NV.

Scimitar Town Car Phaeton — Named for the scimitar-like shape of its pride, this is one of three Scimitar vehicles designed by Brooks Stevens for the 1959 Geneva auto show (the others were a station wagon and a two-door with a tractable hardtop). The aluminum bodywork (placed over a 1959 Chrysler New Yorker chassis by Reuter) was commissioned by Olin Aluminum Corp. to show the benefits of its metal. The roof over the passenger compartment could be lowered into the trunk to create a four-door convertible.

This car is on display at the Petersen museum.
