1956 Chrysler Windsor model explained
In my haste to post photographs of our new GLM 56 Windsor, I picked a model that the windshield was not quite right on.here is a better picture of said windshield as it is on most models
One gentleman suggested the windshield should be at least 50% shorter
I guess this is what he had in mind:

This is the original rendering from GLM.
I had to have them correct the height.
One suggestion was that maybe a change could be made during production. To help you understand, these models are all run at one time. Some things can be corrected if need be, others not so much.
I welcome your comments. We need feedback for continual improvement to these models.

Thomas, I would love to see a dead on side view of the windshiel at a height not looking up or down. (EOM) by Curtis Parisi #28972.1
Agree with Curtis - it could put me in a buying mood. (EOM) by Harvey Goranson #28972.1.1

Here it is cropped and rotated by John Kuvakas #28972.1.2.2
That picture shows it straight on, and it looks perfect to my eyes. (EOM) by BenD Lampson #28972.
A new side-by-side comparison by Harvey Goranson #28972.
Looking at the comparison, I'll have to pass. Also the rear of door shut line is off. (EOM) by Curtis Parisi #28972.
I ordered it. I highly doubt that a better model of a '56 Windsor will ever exist, and I want one! (EOM) by Barry Levittan #28972.
Will there be up top convertibles or hardtop versions in the future? (EOM) by Mark Sweeney #28972.
