A concept illustration of "Sophia" by Janne Kutja. Janne's illustration incorporates John and Oz's initiall design. Main features includes a chopped and hardtopped Matranga style roof and side windows, restyled runningboards, molded fenders, flush mounted fenderskirts and dropped headlights. The coupe has been shaved for handles, ornamentation and turn signals, and it has been dressed up with custom made sidetrim, Appleton spotlights and 1953 Cadillac hubcaps. The front bumper ends have been altered slightly and the centerpieces between the bumper guards have been removed. The paintjob is a light green fadeaway.
