On the topic of unconventional top and trim as above, here's a paisley Plymouth.

It would be going a bit far to suggest this a car I like, but the boot opening mechanism on the Mitsubishi Lancer WRC04 is interesting. The rear spoiler was moved forward on the bootlid for aerodynamic reasons, but this ment when equipped with a regular boot hinge the spoiler hit the rear window, so a new mechanism had to be designed.

I really love the door handles on the new Lincoln Continentals. So much elegance and beauty! It makes the rest of the door very clean even with the limited edition model with suicide doors dubbed the "Coach".

Haven't seen this thread yet, so I was looking back, and boy do I disagree strongly with this particular detail. Absolutely gorgeous car otherwise, I agree with another poster's sentiment that it does the luxury look better than the German big 3... but that looks like a fridge handle, or something you'd see in a commercial-grade kitchen. I've just always admired these cars, and I never noticed this before, so your 'reveal' post surprised the hell out of me.

Center section of an 09 to 14 F-150's front bench seat lifts up to reveal storage and access to the yaw sensor.
I also like the bold design of the 96 1/2 to 2004 F-150 and the 97-98 F-250. No other truck looks quite like that.
On a Ford you can access OBD2 with a smartphone for some limited stuff or you can access it with a laptop to do more advanced stuff.
Also some Ford radios are interchangeable, so your next upgrade might be sitting at Pull A Part.
And the best I can think of ATM: my own truck, a '13 F-150 STX, has blackout trim both inside and out so you don't get the sun glare from chrome bezels inside.
Honorable mention goes to the vinyl seats in a 1972 Olds Vista Cruiser. You can't sit on them in the summer but you can fry an egg on one. No butt warmers were needed.

It's not a car I have strong feelings for either way, but the doors on the Kaiser-Darrin are interesting; they slide forward into the front wings.
