The Jacqueline was a gorgeous coupe designed by Pininfarina in 1961. It was a Cadillac underneath and may have been an attempt to sell Cadillac on another production car, as their two-year contract to build Brougham sedans ended in with the 1960 models.

At first I tried to keep the coupe's skeletal thin C-pillar but it didn't work on the sedan. When I added this wide body-color panel, still inset in the chrome trim, the sedan really popped for me!

I think this sedan comes off as a sportier Mercedes 280SE or perhaps Maserati Quattroporte from that period. I really love the way it came out!
