Even when you think you have seen most of the concept cars from years past, once in a while one shows up, like this Corvair Futura concept car, that has you scratching your head. I had to stop and look because I just don’t recall ever seeing it before.
It is listed on eBay as a 1960 which is about right judging from the Corvair styling from those years and it has a center front driver position like some current supercars. The glass surrounding the driver, including a glass sunroof, adds to the feeling of visibility but you have to wonder what would happen in a frontal crash, it looks like the driver might be the very first person on the scene. There are no pictures of the engine but I imagine it would be pretty standard Corvair power.
Concept cars from the fifties and sixties had a very period style to them, sort of an optimistic jet powered feeling. I love the look.
