Over the years I've collected a couple of Shadow "Thunder-cabs" from the Kenner line. I always thought that it was the perfect car to convert into a 40s Batmobile. Later, I found a photo on-line of someone who had done the same thing (see photo below). My idea was to make a vehicle for the Kenner "Retro-Batman" figure. Since the Shadow figures were bigger than the "Animated Series", I thought the extra room would only add to the "realistic scale" that is often missed in toy lines. The main goal is to make the "fin" attached to a pivot at the back bumper, that allows the "front seats" roof to open for figures to fit in.
NOTE: This is not my work! Just a photo I found on the web.
