CAR WITH PROP (Oct, 1955)
CAR WITH PROP
Unique Argentine Aerocar can do 100 mph and is being considered for mass production in the U.S.
THIS peppy-looking buggy with the unorthodox propeller on its tail is the new Argentine Aerocar powered by a 90-brake horsepower Chevy engine and with a top speed of about 100 mph. Designers and builders Eugenio Grosovich and Gianfranco Bricci claim the only bad feature of the car is poor acceleration up to 40 mph. A California manufacturer is interested in buying the prototype and producing the vehicle in large numbers in the United States.
