Car-Trailer Combination (Feb, 1938)

Car-Trailer Combination
A radical departure in automobile design is represented by a streamlined automobile in which the body and frame are integral and which, it is claimed, increases safety in driving while combining all of the features of a pleasure car and trailer. The structure is streamlined and is 16 feet long and 6 feet 4 inches wide overall. The inside height is 6 feet 4 inches. The motor is in the rear and operates on the rear wheels. The car is suspended from variable pitch coil springs and has a cruising speed of fifty miles an hour. Its floor is 12 inches from the ground and the road clearance is 9-1/2 inches. This together with improved driver visibility, it is claimed, makes the car especially safe to drive.
