Incredible. We are guessing that 1939 was an interesting year for automakers, because anyone making a full plexiglass Ghost Car is on some interesting tip. And it also goes to show that in America, at one time, it wasn’t about cost-cutting and shortcuts, it was about premium manufacturing, you know, the things that make a nation into a complete and absolute powerhouse economically. According to AutoBlog, “For the 1939 World’s Fair, Pontiac built a Deluxe Six bodied in Plexiglass. Part of the Previews of Progress pavilion in which General Motors’ Futurama showed off what was to come in the world of autos, the ‘invisible’ Pontiac is credited as the first transparent car in America. And there were no shortcuts taken with its body: the Plexiglass form was fabricated by the company that brought the material to market in 1933, Rohm & Haas. The see-through sedan was sold at RM Auctions’ St. John’s auction in Michigan on July 30, fetching $308,000.”
