Famed auto designer Brooks Stevens created three Scimitar models for dispay at the 1959 Geneva Auto. The other two models were a hard-top convertible and a Town Car Phaeton. All three cars were built on a 1959 Chrysler New Yorker Chassis. The cars received great attention and acclaim.

The cars were financed by Olin Aluminum and extensive use of the lightweight metal was used to construct the car. The silver-appearing areas are anodized, brushed aluminum. The car’s name is derived from the Scimitar shape, clearly evident in the upward sweep from the lower front fender to the top of the rear fender.

The cars were never produced or offered for sale. This car is on display at the National Automobile Museum in Reno, NV.
