Mad Men 60'

1963/64
Subject: Advance Styling studio at General Motors Research Center 
Description: The main car is a 1966 Buick Riviera, with an alternate front end of a 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado. This makes sense as they both shared 119″ wheelbases and main bodies, with the major difference being the Riv. was rear wheel drive while the Toro. was front wheel drive. Since the Toronado was a big departure for GM, this was probably a highly secure area, though we do see a Chevrolet Malibu 4 door next to our main car. In the background can be seen a more advanced study which appears to be a 1968 Chevrolet Malibu. The man at work in the foreground, the open case in front of the car, the scope of the shot showing the natural light coming through the tall curtains and the mass of lights at the ceiling make this one of the best photos featured. This was the 1st year Toronado, the cleanest Design of all, and it went on to win Motor Trends Car of the Year award. This shot was probably taken in late 1964 and no later.
