Phantom Corsair

The dieselpunk era saw the creation of some of the most amazing cars in history. One of those fantastic creations was the Phantom Corsair.



Built in 1938 by Rust Heinz the Phantom Corsair had a V-8 Engine and front wheel drive. Instead of door handles it was opened by pressing buttons on either the outside or on the dash. The expected sticker price was $12,500 but the untimely death of Heinz prevented it from ever going to production. It sits today in the National Automobile Museum in Reno, Nevada.
