GM Futurliner – The Coolest Bus Ever?

Is this the coolest bus ever made? It certainly doesn’t resemble the miserable peasant wagons we see trundling through the traffic on a usual day!

How marvelous it would be if all busses were designed with such amazing style! The GM Futurliners were designed by Harley Earl for General Motors in the 1940’s. Only 12 were ever made, they travelled the States for GM’s Parade of Progress displaying the latest technology of the day.

We thought it would be fun to get one and re brand it as the ADO wagon. We could travel the country spreading the word. However, only 7 are known to still exist. The last one to be auctioned in 2007 sold for a record breaking $4,000,000 (plus premium) so they are just a tad out of our price range just yet. Maybe next year.
