Also awkward

Built for headroom and cargo space, but not for style.
   CARISTAS contributor Michael R. Roy photographed this rather rudely converted 1957 Dodge Custom Royal and its bemused-looking owner, who was perhaps waiting for a part or simply taking a mid-repair break.
   Many Cuban Dodges are reskinned Plymouths, the so-called "Plodges" that Chrysler sold outside the United States. But Chryslerclub.org tells us that the Custom Royal that was built in Canada, source of Chrysler's export models, was the same as the U.S. car, so this example is all Dodge.
   Or it was, until the family-truckster top was substituted for the graceful roofline with which this four-door hardtop was originally equipped.
