Why would you bother with the sedan tail lights?

The mismatch of the tailgate glass height to the side glass is gonna be a no from me.

Didn’t someone chop a 245 or 745 and make it a 2 door wagon? Swear I remember seeing pictures somewhere. 243c would’ve been cool

Vinyl top on the rear hatch and the vinyl stripe under the windows would have balanced the lines a little better.

It's funny cause the only good angle on a 262c is the back.
