Meticulously Restored 1953 General Motors Futurliner #10 To Be Displayed
Vehicles from Wayne Carini and Dave Kindig’s Collections, Bogi Lateiner’s All-Women-Built ‘The Chevy Montage,’ Vehicles from Klairmont Kollections, Volo Museum, and Many More to Also be Shown
Rosemont, IL – Today the Chicago Classic Auto Show announced a selection of vehicles to be showcased at the inaugural show from private owners, collections and museums.
Among the most exciting vehicles to be shown will be the 1953 General Motors Futurliner #10, one of 12 large dual-front wheeled display vehicles that crisscrossed the country in the early 1950s, part of a General Motors promotion called the Parade of Progress. With 16-foot display doors on either side, the Futurliner toured the nation accompanied by GM’s newest cars and was a perfect platform for static exhibits and live demonstrations of emerging technology of the future. Now owned by the National Auto & Truck Museum (NATMUS), the vehicle took seven years and countless volunteer hours and donations to restore.
