Radical GM Futurliner Heading Back to Auction
Barrett-Jackson continues to be one of the best collector car auctions on the planet. Not only do they have rare and vintage muscle cars, or Italian exotics, but every now and again something weirdly wonderful crosses the auction block. For instance, this GM Futurliner. It’s one of only 12 Futurliners ever built and was the pinnacle of American futurism in the late '40s and early '50s. The bus was designed under Harley Earl’s time at GM. It was meant to be the focal point of GM’s Parade of Progress, a traveling exhibit of how GM envisioned the future of motoring. RELATED: See More Photos of the Jaw-Dropping GM Futurliner
This particular Futurliner is only one of three surviving examples that have been completely restored to showroom condition. It’s billed as a 1950 model year and will cross the auction block on Jan. 13, 2015, in Scottsdale, Arizona. All proceeds from the sale will benefit the Armed Forces Foundation.
How much will it cost? Well, the last time this Futurliner came up for auction, it sold for a staggering $4.4 million. So we’re eager to see how much it will go for this time.
