This car looks so creepy it’s cool, and I’m not the only person who feels that way. The 1939 Pontiac sedan sold by R M Auction over the weekend in Plymouth, Michigan for $308,000. I’m what you would call a car nut, having owned over 100 automobiles in my life so far, if I had the money, you bet it would be in my collection. Take the jump and get the story on this 1939 Pontiac.
The 1939 Pontiac Deluxe Six “Ghost Car,” first displayed at the New York World’s Fair and later at the Smithsonian Institution, was sold Saturday for $308,000.
Originally built for $25,000, the car with a Plexiglas body was the first transparent car built in America. Another was built the following year, but its whereabouts are unknown.
The Ghost Car was first displayed at the 1939/1940 New York World’s Fair. It toured a number of dealerships, and then was at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. for a number of years.
The same family has owned it since the 1980s. The 1939 Pontiac has 100 miles on it.
