What was the original shuttle proposal? I would be interested in seeing what it could have been.

Get yourself a copy of Dennis Jenkins' shuttle books:
Space Shuttle: History of Developing the National Space Transportation System. 1992.
Space Shuttle: History of Developing the National Space Transportation System - The Beginning Through STS-75. 1996.
Space shuttle: History of the National Space Transportation System - The First 100 missions. 2001
From one edition to another material has been dropped to make room for new one so that's why I'm recommending the three. For earlier designs/plans, the first one is full of them. A true shuttle encyclopedia and a must have.
