The Wonderful World of Wheels (1966)

Ryan’s excellent discussion starter about plastics in early hot rods, customs and race vehicles, and that reminded me of one particular of the early pioneers of bubble top rated plastic domes on customs, Monthly bill Cushenbery. His quite initially scratch-designed development was the iconic ‘Silhouette’ which went on to be a a number of-exhibit winner, a Hot Wheel, and an AMT model package. Monthly bill designed it as a entirely driveable, roadworthy generation, and which is why it was featured in this CBS Tv Exclusive from September of 1966 known as ‘The Fantastic Entire world of Wheels”, with Lloyd Bridges as your host. The entire movie is genuinely really worth a look at for the 60s go-karts, slot cars and trucks, dune buggies, exhibit vehicles, and much more. Lloyd drives the Silhouette throughout the opening sequence along the Pacific Coastline Highway and at times in the course of the demonstrate. Whilst this movie has been shared on the HAMB in advance of, I imagined it was well worth sharing yet again, and highlighting the customized auto & hot rod times for you:
