Henry J. Kaiser, founder of then automobile firm Kaiser-Frazer Corporation wanted to build a car that would not only be affordable but also spacious and one that would have a low cost of maintenance. His directive was followed by his engineers.
And so the windows at the rear were kept fixed as this car had only 2-doors (since 4-doors cars involved additional manufacturing processes), absence of any separate trunk opening (occupants had to fold the rear-seat and bring out the luggage). There were no separate glove compartments, sun-visor, etc. Even fuel economy was the highest with the car giving almost 11 km/litre.
This model was called Henry J as a tribute to his revolutionary idea.
However this model with a 2.2 litre and a 2.6 litre engine didn’t do much well as it was during the period, when Americans wanted gas guzzling powerful engines and with lots of space.
