vintage ford concept

The 1955 Ford Mystere promised a push button starter, a radio telephone, a flip-over steering wheel that allowed it to be driven from either of the swiveling front seats, and a gas turbine engine under the rear deck. This would be replaced three years later by a ‘small nuclear reactor’ in the extraordinary Ford Nucleon.

1962 Nuclear Powered Ford Seattle-ite XXI

Unveiled on April 20, 1962 at the Seattle World’s Fair. The showcar contained a lot of pipe-dream technology that has become commonplace today, including interactive computer navigation, mapping and auto information systems, and it featured an interchangeable fuel cell and bodywork.
