Take A Look Inside This One-Of-A-Kind Automobile…

First unveiled to the public at the 1939 World’s Fair at the General Motor Highways pavilion, this one-of-a-kind car is truly a singular feat of engineering and design known as the Pontiac “Ghost.”

It was modeled after the 1939 Pontiac Deluxe.

The exterior of the car was built in collaboration with the makers of Plexiglass.

It was the first transparent car to be built in the United States.

The interior has all the trimmings you’d expect from the best classic cars …

It does, however, lack some aesthetic interior components like padding/wood paneling for the doors. This was to preserve the “bare bones” transparency effect they were going for.

The Ghost also features chrome-plated interior hardware.

In 2011, the car was sold for $308,000 by RM Auctions.

That’s a nice markup considering it cost $25,000 to manufacture.

It’s even still got the original tires.

Although it’s fully functional and totally driveable, don’t expect to see it on the highway: the non-traditional vehicle identification number is not legal.

Which is too bad, because seriously, how cool would it be to be seen driving around in this?
