American regulations for lights
A sneak peek at the new-for-1957 Alira Stinson, Alira’s attempt at an American car built to European ideals… with a “big surprise” of some sort hiding under the hood? I wonder what that might be… all I know as a journalist is that this car feels swift and light, and everything felt remarkably luxurious and solid. It is clearly a true performance machine. We weren’t given much other information, but I can promise it will be worth the wait.

With GMI reaching Large company status in 1954, the board proposed a Large sedan intended for sale to all GMI executives and the powerful figures of the Island nation Garcia. With our prototype meeting all design criteria after a few rounds of trial and error, the board reached the desision to release the newly named 370 line globally, with different engine and trim models to meet all markets.
For the Gasmean (American) market only, GMI engineers equipped the 370 with a High output 6.0 V8. Making around 212 BHP at the Flywheel and 300 Ib/ft of torque, the Arrow can sure Pull alright. Paired with GMI’s all new 4 on the floor Accushift manual transmission the arrow will reach 0-62 MPh in around 9.4 seconds. Some would say it can Muscle it’s way through the competition.
In Automation Dollars
*The value of $2,008 was given by using the website inflation calculator and entering the Automation dollars value in 2012 then calcualting the value in 1956. 2012 was used as that’s the default year in Automation.
Few cars in the 50s had anything else than round headlamps anyway.
Basically read this for more clarification: History of US Headlights. Because my car is a '56 I use 2 large lights that in reality would be the regulation 7" in a chrome bezel for style. TBF you don’t have to be exact about size, don’t think @variationofvariables is hosting a measuring contest… just keep it realistic.
For 1956 Staier’s engineers managed to surprise some industry watchers (including a few members of company management) with the Grizzly, a GT based on the Staier Meteor. The GT uses a version of the larger Jovian’s V8, though this one only displaces 241 cu. in. Also, in a departure from the Meteor, the Grizzly uses an independent rear suspension. The Grizzly is expected to hit dealerships this summer with an expected price in the neighborhood of $15 000.
Uh you are using a body that isnt from 1951 and below…? Or is your 3D fixture work so well done it looks like one of the 1955+ bodies
pretty sure it says you cant use a body UNDER 1951, so only 1951 and later…could be wrong tho
What model year means is the year the model was first designed. Doesn’t mean you can’t use a pre 1951 body persay.
Oh wait did i read it wrong thonk, yes I did well then
ahh, wrong body then…
