Futuristic Custom

  • Original year: 1964
  • Company: AMT
  • Scale: 1/25
  • Designer: Bill Cushenbery

Build it STOCK, STREET or DRAG! Bill Cushenbery's needle-nosed, bubble-topped masterpiece in metal began as a '56 Buick chassis, shortened to a 98-inch wheelbase, with 28 inches cut from the tread. Then came the radical body, with its sculptured lines, wheel cut-outs, and end curvatures--all completely hand-formed by Cushenbery from 20 gauge metal. Inside the nearly all-electronic cockpit, champagne, pearl and black naugahyde upholstery give the same futuristic look to the interior, with its homemade instrument panel and remote-control steering column. Winner of the 1963 Oakland Roadster Show Tournament of Fame.

Dave's comments:

Another bubble-topped, optimistic dream of the future, this one comes with its own custom trailer. Bill Cushenbery is truly a dreamer as you'll see when you visit the Dream Rod he also helped design and build for Car Craft Magazine.
