    I think to summarise all of the "volume car" in one, i'd go with something slightly earlier, like a ford model A or B, not just because it makes for a more typical hot rod, but also because chassis and body designs were still really modular; a sedan, coupe, and pickup shared nearly all body panels, and with just another chassis (like the D/H45) you basically get a medium/heady duty truck.

    Another demographic that would be interesting to explore from that era is the luxury car.
    super advanced technology for the time, an engine so enormous it can keep up with a 230s vivace in a straight line, and it really opens up the possibilities for mods.
    cars like these were often shipped to coachbuilders to have completely unique bodies put on them, imagine the MfD competition that would ensue.

    Late 20s and early 30s really were the era of experimentation. Whilst Britain stuck with their solid axles rear and front, same with ford and its transverse leaf springs, rest of America was eyeing independent front suspension and keeping a solid rear axle whilst France and Central Europe had a race in who can build better, cheaper and simpler independent suspension for front and rear.

    And the diversity in what you could do with a car was truly unbelievable.
    Few pics just for show:

    1931 Tatra 80, V12 all wheel independent suspension and backbone chassis

    1932 Tatra 57, the same in small version with an air cooled four-cylinder boxer.

    1933 Škoda 420, basically the same as Tatra just a bit more conventional.
    upload_2021-6-10_14-22-51.jpeg

    Mercedes 170, again the same
    upload_2021-6-10_14-23-11.jpeg

    And Mercedes-Benz 770, still the same
    upload_2021-6-10_14-28-39.jpeg

    Compared to that traditional British chassis looked like this:
    Austin Seven


    Bentley 8 Litre

    upload_2021-6-10_14-29-8.jpeg

    And Ford

    There are of course many more examples, but this post is already long enough.

    Like the Auriga Heron did. Bentley 8 liter is agreat idea honestly.
    I wish someone could properly revive and fix up the Heron. It was a little bit jiggly but its system of non synchromesh was genius. You're right, an earlier car which shares a frame, and things were modular. For future reference and less confusion the way I'd describe "really modular" cars is maybe with some pictures
    For example how the Model T has literally the exact same front (1920s model) as the Touring (And the step area)
    With the bench seat also most likely being the same.
    And honestly it shouldn't be too hard to gather data for this car, there is bound to be some sort of classic car club who is willing to have BeamNG's people examine their handling, suspension stiffness and things like that.
    --- Post updated ---
    In short, I REALLY think that BeamNG should eventually incorporate an old vehicle, pre 40's. It would stand out a crap ton and would be preeetty revolutionary for a car game.

    There are tons of bodies that could be build, I mean just look at the Model A

    Just imagine the modding possibilities!

    And, there is also the Model AA truck that uses a lot of parts from the standard Model A.

    2001 - 2006 Ibishu Covet (Based off the 2003 Honda Civic and 2004 Toyota Corolla 3dr hatchbacks)

    "Sports car handling at a economy car's price"

    The 7th gen Ibishu Covet is one of the most forgotten ones, easily overshadowed by it's 1980s and 1990s ancestors, as well as it's modern siblings. However, for the select few that chose this generation of Covet over any other found that it is one of the most sport oriented ones, only being rivaled by it's newest incarnation.

    Variants:

    The Senseless: Have you ever wanted to drive around town in a nearly useless eyesore? Then this Covet DXi is for you! Coming with modifications that include, but are not limited to, a aftermarket body kit, a massive rear spoiler, a rattle can paint job, tacky aftermarket wheels, a ludicrous stance, a straight pipe exhaust, and so much more vile things!

    DX: The base model Covet, equipped with a 90hp SOHC 1.4L I4 coupled to either a 4 speed automatic or 5 speed manual transmission.

    DXi: Equipped with a 118hp SOHC 1.5L I4 coupled to either a 4 speed automatic or 5 speed manual transmission. Other features include power windows, power locks, a rear anti-roll bar, and a small rear spoiler.

    LXi: The mid-trim model of the Covet, equipped with a 127hp 1.7L SOHC I4, rear coil-overs instead of struts, power steering, alloy wheels, body colored trim, and fog lights.

    ZXi: The sport model Covet, equipped with a 160hp 2.0L DOHC I4 coupled to a 5 speed manual transmission. Other features include a black mesh grille, red badges, cloth bucket seats, a leather wrapped steering wheel, sport suspension, sport brakes, a factory body kit with a rear diffuser, a rear spoiler, ZXi decals on the bottom of the doors, a ZXi gauge cluster, and quick ratio steering.

    ZXi Nomi Edition: A limited edition of the Covet that was co-designed with Nomi themselves. Features include a 200hp 2.0L DOHC I4 coupled to a 6 speed manual transmission, a Nomi body kit with a rear diffuser, a Nomi rear spoiler, black Nomi ET55 5 spoke wheels, a nomi racing wheel, racing bucket seats, and Nomi decals instead of ZXi ones.

    Street Tuned: A Covet ZXi with a aftermarket turbo charger, a cold air intake, a custom exhaust system, a 6 speed manual transmission, aftermarket wheels, a aftermarket body kit, a rear lip spoiler, a carbon fiber vented hood, and custom decals.

    Circuit: The perfect car to start your racing career with. This modified Covet ZXi comes with a roll cage, racing wheels, racing brakes, racing suspension, a Nomi GT spoiler, Nomi wheels, a Nomi racing wheel, racing bucket seats, a racing LSD, a racing intake, racing exhaust, 6 speed racing manual transmission, and a amateur racing livery.

    Burner: Burner is a Covet ZXi Nomi Edition for the driver that's comfortable racing in oncoming traffic at over 160mph. Modifications include a 2.0L DOHC I4 with racing parts galore, along with a turbo and nitrous, a 6 speed racing manual transmission, a vented body colored hood, a roll cage, racing bucket seats, racing suspension, racing brakes, a racing LSD, Black Folk ET73 wheels, and a scratched up racing livery with various sponsor stickers on the doors, hood, bumpers, and even the top of the windshield. Burner also comes with a reinforced frame, just in case your opposition gets a little aggressive and you need to, say, slam them into a concrete divider for instance.

    Exterior and Interior: (Based off the ZXi model)

    I'd recommend the rear end of the Tatra 12. It is from the same area as the DKW, and it uses the same Weymann body as the DKW.


    If you'd rather use a steel body then there is the Jawa 700 which is a DKW F2 made under licence in Czechoslovakia which in the latter part of its production received an all steel body.





    This is how many of those Jawas looked in the 60s and early 70s when they were still commonly used as daily drivers, this one retained its looks to this day.


    There was also a race version called the Jawa 750





    --- Post updated ---
    Exactly! And two-stroke cars are a typically Central European thing, there were so many manufactures mainly from Germany and Czechoslovakia.

    DKWs F1 to F8





    And then there is Czechoslovakia... Where to begin:

    Aero





    Aero 50 which with its 2-litre 4-cylinder two stroke engine that powers the front wheels has got, I believe, the biggest two stroke engine in a serially produced passenger car.






    Then there are two-strokes from the Zbrojovka Brno which were sold simply under the brand name “Z”





    Then there was the Jawa 700 I've mentioned



    But I haven't mentioned its successor, Jawa Minor



    And don't even get me started about the post-war era, there really were so many great two-strokes and not a single one is in the game!

    Alright I'll show few of them:

    The post you responded to is over a year old, so my guess is that the mod has been taken down since then.

    If there's anybody with some time left, on Grabcad are several pretty nice OBJ files, to make a mod with. For example: Johndeere.jpg
    https://grabcad.com/library/john-deere-9rx-640-1

    I don't have any experience making a mod, so I thought I would post it here.

    This is a 1989 Jeep Comanche build made for SENA from a company called JCR. This is my dream truck and I have one of my own and I am building it to be similar to this. I would love to see this made in Beam and it would look incredible. I would love for someone to make this mod and I really wish I could but I do not have a good enough computer or the time to make a mod. I would want this mod to be very changeable, such as multiple front bumpers, rear bumpers, bed rack with or without accessories, roof rack with or without accessories, changeable axles, axle gearing and locking options, different engines such as the LS, a 4bt Cummins, the infamous I6 along with a build 4.7L I6 Stroker engine. Transmissions that you can change and put in such as the manual Peugeot BA-10/5 five-speed, Aisin-Warner AX-15 five-speed, New Venture Gear NV3550 five-speed. And one automatic, the Chrysler 30RH three-speed. Transfer cases such as New Process NP231 Command-Trac, New Process NP242 Selec-Trac, New Venture 241OR. Axles such as dana 30, 35, 44, 60, 70, 80. I know this is very ambitious but I do think this would look and turn out incredibly. JCR's build list https://www.jcroffroad.com/JCRBUILDS.html#manche
