Leva Car
It Floats on Air!

  • Original year: 1961
  • Company: AMT
  • Scale: 1/20
  • Designer: Ford Motor

The Levacar Mach I is designed to permit ground travel in the 200 to 500 miles per hour range. It has no wheels but rides instead on a thin film of air allowing it to slide rather than roll. This, easy to assemble kit is in authentic WORKING replica of Ford's futuristic Levacar Mach I. This model actually floats on a thin, frictionless film of air in the same manner as the original Levacar demonstrating the theory of levitation.

Dave's comments:

Those engineers at Ford must have been smoking rope back in the 60s to think this was practical. 500 MPH with no brakes? How do you stop the damn thing? Put out an anchor? Kit has a rubber hose you blow into to levitate the car. As in other cases, the exact description from the box is typed in above--bad English, punctuation and all.
