The Ghost Car
A 1939-1940 Pontiac with a skin of Rohm and Haas revolutionary product, Plexiglas®, forecast the “World of Tomorrow” at the 1939 New York World's Fair.
The second largest World's Fair held in America, the exhibition displayed the initiative of American companies as our country was rising from the Great Depression and on the brink of World War II.
Though not futuristic in any sense, the Ghost Car did bring into public view the adaptability and durability of "plastic sheet," features that would forever make the product a universal part of the American industrial landscape.
