    GM-X

    It's extremely hard to find concept car drawings, so thanks for the donation. I think the first concept car was the 1929 Auburn Cabin Speedster, that ssexton donated. It can be found by doing an Auburn search. I think I've seen some others, also, as the 1940 Chrysler. ettore

    GM-X (XP-759)

    I was very glad to find this bp and now came the time to make a model. Not only the Stileto (XP-759) introduced in 1964 is in my mind but the Pontiac Cirrus (XP-759 with reshaped front end 1969) too. I prepared the bp based on above bp and found a few pic of car. Unfortunatelly all photos are b/w !
    Has anybody any information about the colors of car and inside ? Any information would be a great help for me.

    Cirrus color

    The only color photos I've ever seen of the Pontiac Cirrus was on the cover
    of the May 1969 issue of Car Life and an issue of High Performance Pontiac
    from a few years ago. The Cirrus seems to be painted a shade of
    silver-grey.

    I forgot to mention that in its original form, the GM-X had a black interior.
    When it was turned into the Cirrus, the interior color seems to have been
    changed to grey.

    Correction and photos

    Oops! I thought that the GM-X originally had a black interior. When I looked at the photos again, it looks like the interior might have been dark grey all along.
    Also, here are some more photos that may help you with your model.

    Hi packard400,
    many thanks for the new pictures ! I`m ready with the supposed seat position and it seemed to be rather good what I managed to do.
