Myself, I'd say the Lunchbox. It's a classic the same as the Grasshopper, but there's no mistaking it for any old buggy at first glance like the Grasshopper. It also demonstrates Tamiya's "fun first" attitude for the design of many old classic.
Really, I think the Clodbuster would be great too. I don't see why it wouldn't fit the theme nor why you think it's limited in photogenic and off road capabilities. It's the definition of what a classic Tamiya is, and it's uninterrupted 23 year run is proof of it's iconic popularity.
