The GM Futurliner

American Dream Cars is officially at the Fall Carlisle Collector Car Swap Meet & Corral. One of the first things that caught our eyes was the very rare GM Futurliner. Only 12 were built and only nine Futurliners are known to exist, five of which are in total disrepair. Photographed below is Futurliner No. 10 restored to its original condition by Don Mayton. Enjoy and stay tuned for more posts from the Fall Carlisle show.

  1. i worked for a company in Columbus Ohio who used a Futurliner as part of their product advertisement. The name was Industrial Nucleonics / AccuRay.
    Does anyone know the whereabouts of that machine?
