Being a society obsessed with personal freedom and individuality, we often overlook the humble bus. But back in the ’50s people still romanticized the cross-country Greyhound trips and dreamed of futuristic streamlined buses with onboard movie theaters and moon rocket launching pads. That’s why legendary automotive designer Harley J. Earl and his team got all fired up to design a bus for the General Motors Parade of Progress. The cavalcade of cool showcased GM’s futuristic concept designs from 1941 to 1956. This 1950 Futurliner was one of a dozen sleek coaches that formed in the cross-country caravan. It has a fold-out stage, a single-seat “cupola” cockpit, and a dual-wheel front axle. It also looks killer. The bus has made promotional tours of, ironically, Canada.
