Yesterday I already posted a bit about the Gloria Royce by guroria430 from Team Madonna and I remembered bookmarking these videos of the car a while ago.
The 430 is really a work of art! It obviously started out as a Nissan Gloria 430 but soon was modified with the chrome Rolls-like grille, wild bodywork and the R30 tail lights:
Both videos can be found on the next page…

This one is somewhere between kaido racer and bippu. I’d rather refer to it as the style Koenig created in the 80s.
The wild mix of awesome hood fins, side fins, side air intake, large wings and deep dished SSR Formula Mesh wheels just makes it an exceptional appearance at the Auto Salon!
Edit: it is a Crown JZS150

The 430 is a great platform: you can basically can’t do anything wrong and it will always work out fine. Just take a look at this roofchopped Gloria 430:
Even though the 430 never received a convertible all it takes to make one is by removing the roof. Does it look like a sloppy job? Not at all.
Back in the late 80s AMG was one of the baddest tuners around: with their bulky lowered Mercs they really showed how tuning is supposed to be done. Naturally another tuner of that era called Koenig made even more outrageous designs including the Koenig Testarossa which looked a bit more out of space than Doc’s Delorean time machine.
So naturally people stared copying the AMG and Koenig designs, including this beautiful Cedric 430:
Not only does it feature an enormous sharknose and lip, it also includes the typically Koenig side air intakes!
Seen from the rear it becomes apparent how ridiculously wide those rear fenders are! (more…)by banpei with 1 comment
