Oldsmobile Incas - can anyone find a picture with the lights on to confirm if they popup or are a moving panel?

Rear access was through the gullwing doors but the front doors are part of the windscreen :D

Third wheel reference from Alan.
Robin reference's aside, or possibly Morgan as the Third wheel is at the rear??.

PS just spotted the SS1 trailing arms on the bench at RHS in second photo so was this going to be built on a modified SS1 chassis or was it modified GTE??

It was going to be the "next generation" GTE, but they may have been investigating the provision of IRS?

In fact I've just looked in TSAIF, and Don describes it as "all-independant" :D

A special mention (but not inclusion) for the Alfa Navajo. Not content with popups, Bertone went for “popouts” on this 1976 exercise (presumably going for the full set as the Alfa BAT 5 moved inwards and the BAT 7 moved downwards :D )
