At first glance, the Die Valkyrie Caddy reminds me of the early-to-mid-fifties Studebaker line. IMO, both front and rear-end styling is reminiscent of the 1952-54 Studebaker Starliner Coupe, and the later 55-57 Studebaker Hawks.

On the other hand, in the same time, Chrysler, Dodge, and to a lesser extent Plymouth commissioned Ghia among other studios to design some truly inspirational one-offs. A few were very low production styling concepts.

IMO, most all GM and Ford concepts in the ffities and sixties were overdone futuristic styling failures that were too far removed from real-world production acceptance. Chrysler lead the way with many European flavored concepts that people really admired.
