The GM Futurliner at Fall Carlisle

If you have been following these blog posts, you have read that American Dream Cars attended and have vendor spaces at Carlisle. Our neighbor, this year, was the very impressive GM Futurliner #10.

Owned by the National Automotive and Truck Museum of the United States, #10 has visited several collector cars shows accompanied by several of the volunteers who helped restore this magnificent piece of industrial and automotive history.

The Futurliner is basically a bus with large clamshell type doors on each side. When opened, #10 becomes a stage where displays are set up. The volunteers have created an interesting display showing the Futurliner’s history. There was always a large numbers of visitors surrounding #10 and each visitor was given the opportunity to ascend stairway to the drivers seat.

  4. WOW !! What a great piece of American history. Yes, would also like to see interior pictures. How about the running gear; motor, trans, etc. ?? Nice restoration.

  5. We do have some more photos of the Futureliner. Will try to make a gallery of them which will probably include some of the things you want to see. Will post on the blog when this gallery will be available. The Futureliner is indeed a very interesting vehicle and does an excellent job of showcasing American automotive engineering and expertise of the era.
