1938 PHANTOM CORSAIR

0

The Phantom Corsair was a marvel of futuristic design when it was shown publicly for the first time in 1938. The uniquely laid out body gave it seating for 6 but only 2 doors and 2 windows either side, giving it a beautiful, clean profile and leaving it still looking futuristic, even 70+ years later.
The prototype automobile was designed in 1938 by Rust Heinz (of the H. J. Heinz family) and Maurice Schwartz of the California based Bohman & Schwartz coach building company.

Sadly, the Phantom Corsair never made it into production, Heinz had planned a limited production run at an estimated selling price of $12,500 (1938 dollars). However, he passed away shortly after the car was completed.
It now lives in the National Automobile Museum (The Harrah Collection) in Reno, Nevada.
