Hooniverse Asks: What was History’s Most Ill-Proportioned 2+2?

Robert Emslie April 21, 2017 Hooniverse Asks 70 Comments

In case you hadn’t heard, Jaguar is planning on offering for sale 10 fully restored to new-car-smell fresh E-Types. When the company first made this known I was a little worried over just which E-Types they’d choose to restore. So far it seems they did the right thing and chose to rejuvenate only two-seater Series 1 cars. Those are quite possibly one of the most beautiful automobiles the world has ever seen, and a far better choice than the star of my nightmare scenario, the 2+2 coupe. Holy cow but that’s a silk purse to sow’s ear transformation. 

As a matter of fact, most two-seater coupes that are extended to include occasional back seats end up looking funky as a result. Consider if you will the Mercedes SL and its more capacious brother the SLC, which one would you date?

Today we’re looking for the most undatable of 2+2s, the cars that were unfortunate recipients of an unsuccessful transformation to car pool duty. Which do you think is the world’s most ungainly 2+2?
