The "streamliner" type body was going out of favor by then. I think Chevy dropped it in 1951 or 52.
Interesting car.

Hi PTV

Quite true, the GM fastback Chevy Fleetline and Pontiac Streamliner diminished significantly in popularity from their 1949 introduction, only the two door carried into 1952 at the end.

This is a custom in the vein many of us would do if we had the skills or the finances to do so. I do wish when they cite a specific design by Pinin Farina including images of it for the enlightenment of the viewer. My first reaction was it was inspired by the both the 1948-'49 Cadillac Series 62 two door sedanette and '52 Bentley Continental R-Type by Mulliner.

Not to be critical, but I think the addition of the 1954 reverse lights below the taillights completes that design. And, raising the rear bumper at least two inches would impart a visual lift to the rear styling.

Whether or not the fastback styling would have been accepted in 1952 is one thing but I do not think that the addition of 1954 backup lights would have added anything to this car, which incidentally I think is gorgeous. 1954 backup lights hadnít been designed yet in 1952 and itís for that very reason that I think the 1954 trunk script is inappropriate. I would have much preferred to see individual block letters such as used on the 1951 hoods.

Reminds me of the back of an Allstate

Yeah I was never wild about the Henry J / Allstate cars. They just were not my cup of tea.
