best rig ever.
I saw these in a documentury i watched about gm and the fifties
There is one at the Coopersville Car Show on August 13th 2011 during the Del Shannon Days car show. I think it has been there a few years in a row. They let you climb up in the cockpit (2 story) and everything, makes for a cool picture.
stumbled on this website while looking for truck parts,,started looking in the rusty trucks and found the futurliner,,i spent four hours last nite reading all i could find..i want to thank you for the hookup..what a story..the parade of progress and the futurliner..im telling everyone..too bad all these old trucks arnt honered and restored..
Ron Pratte paid 4 million for it at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale Az. it is in his museum in Chandler Az.The same guy that paid 5 mill for the Carroll Shelby (Snake)at Barrett.
My dream bus! The most ugly classic bus ever-gotta have one!
Thanx kettlekeeper....I will check out that web site as this really peaks my interest
This is #10 out of 12 produced by GM. It has been restored and completed in 2006. Check out the progress of this restoration at www.futureliner.com
why hasn't this been restored?we need to preserve our automotive history now before all the tree huggers erase it.
I saw these trucks in 1954,in London Ont. Our High school class went to the Parade of Progress,The right side opened up and you accessed the driver's cab up a ladder,If I remember the driver sat in the middle of the cab.We thought they were right out of the Space Age.GM had their Concept cars in them,Pontiac Firebird,Buick LeSabre etc.
yeah ineed a little info on this bad boy!! chaching!
don't know alot about these babies...can anybody enlighten me?
This would be totally awesome to try go through the "drive thru" at Wendy's in! hehehe
out of the original 12....9 have been accounted for..so if this is one the missing 3...it should go to Natmus to be restored...look at the website to see what they did...www.futureliner.com
these things are sooooo cool....you just gotta check out the futureliner website...
There's one of these in Teal on the side of I-70 west near Kanas City
can you say millionare?
Please bring it back to life. It would be cool to see another one of these being sold @ Barrett-Jackson.
Whatever its worth, it is UGLY.
It's worth every penny of $1 Million in its poor condition. Heck, $500,000 rusted out completely
I'll bet he wants one million for it know!
I know EXACTLY where that thing is...and it is NOT for sale. Neat to see! And it is in SoCal.
The Futureliner sold at Barret Jackson in January 2006 for $4,320,000. The highest price ever paid at B-J. It had been restored in the 90's and used as promo for a Canadian cell phone company. It had safety cameras, remote control lights, and video monitors.
where is it at i would love to see it
wat is it??????
Old cars Weekly did a story on this about a year ago. I'm sure it's possible to get a copy of the story. Also, there was a junk one behind the car museum in Auburn, OH I saw about 11 years ago.
i belive there was 12 of these built
There was about 4 or 5 of these built by GMC in the 50's they were part of their futerama displays across the country.
I was in grand rapids michigan about 6 years ago getting parts for my 33 chevy at an old parts place. They had this picture on the counter and were asking for donations to restore it. At that time I think it was in Muskegan Michian but I remember the NATMUS thing, it rings a bell. Last year I saw the auction where the guy bid I think 4 million for the one at barrets
HERE IS THE WEB SITE OF A RESTORED FUTURLINER WWW.FUTURLINER.COM, THIS COULD BE RESTORED AND SHOULD BE BECAUSE IT IS SO RARE!
Not only should be SO fue out their must be resored!
that tv auction u saw it on was jackson barret
This may be the one that is being restored for a museum in Auburn In....The NATMUS museum to be exact. They do have one but I haven't kept up on it's progress.
i seen one of these go for sale on tv auction for a couple million restored
