Back in 1938 Designer Rust Heinz, (is RUST a good name for a car designer?) conjured up a car that was WAY ahead of its time. Science Fiction wasn’t even around but this prototype car looks like it was ripped from the pages of some novel set in 2114.
“The Phantom Corsair is a six-passenger coupé prototype automobile built in 1938. Rust planned to put the Phantom Corsair, which cost approximately $24,000 to produce in 1938 (equivalent to about $370,000 in 2010), into limited production at an estimated selling price of $12,500. However, Heinz’s death in a car accident in July 1939 ended those plans, leaving the prototype Corsair as the only one ever built. (Wikipedia)
