Cute indeed... our youngest looked like that over 25 yrs ago!
I really like that '55, if it had the 260 Hy-Fire v8 and Powerflite with Power Steering I'd be mightily tempted!
I've always felt that a wheelbase of 115" and LOA of about 200" is really the perfect size for a family car.
Ironically that's about the size that '60s intermediates ended up, as evidently even the car-makers themselves realized that the 220" whales that "standard size" cars became were really too much. They're certainly a handful to drive and park today.
