GM Futureliner
GM Futureliner. One of 12 ever made by GM for the "Parade of Progress" cross country tour in the 50's. Caught it in socal. It may not be abandoned, but whether or not it will ever see the road again is definently questionable.

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.

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.

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.

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
corvairscaddys  - February 13, 2007
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.

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
rusto44  - November 18, 2006
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
