Car Body From Airplane Fuselage (May, 1932)

Car Body From Airplane Fuselage
AN AIRPLANE fuselage constitutes the body of the completely streamlined car shown below. The power plant and rear wheel of a motorcycle, a Ford front axle assembly, and three “doughnut” tires complete the make-up of the cigar-shaped car. it has a 130-inch wheelbase, will go 50 miles an hour, and goes from 45 to 50 miles on a gallon of gasoline. Efficient streamlining of this car reduces wind resistance to a minimum.

    In the 1950′s there was a vehicle, touring the highways here in Australia, using the fuselage of a DC-3.
    It has since been restored and is operating to this very day.
