...okay, lets find out.....
Unveiled at the General Motors Highways and Horizons
pavilion at the 1939-40 World’s Fair in New York, the Pontiac
‘Ghost Car’ was buit on the chassis of a 1939 Pontiac Deluxe
Six. In collaboration with Rohm & Haas, a chemical company
that had recently developed Plexiglass, the concept for a
transparent car was conceived and it was the first one ever
built in America.
This one-of-a-kind vehicle will be put up for auction on July 30,
2011 by RM Auctions in Plymouth, Michigan. The car is
estimated to fetch between $275,000 – $475,000.
