I disagree that the Italians did not have had a feel for large American designs, while not big sedans, the Dual Ghia cars that the Italians did for Chrysler were outstanding, and not exactly small, and they typically used the excellent Chrysler hemi V8s of the era to boot. They made 4 or 5 superb prototypes, some were put into limited production, bought by Sinatra, Martin, and other major Hollywood notables, all are hugely sought after now. The VW Karmann Ghia was a direct crib of one of them, on a much smaller scale. Too bad Packard didn't take the Caribbean in the Dual Ghia's direction!
