That is really neat. The chrome treatment on the rear, the basket weave headliner, the seating arrangement and table - too cool.

I like the art work too - delivery guy handing over a package to the ladies in the back seat and the Morris-esque/Arts and Crafts style advertisement on top.

Sorry Harry, you would never get me into a car in which the seats aren't bolted to the floor.

Yeah, that would be a major problem. What were they thinking??? :lol:

The thing could also have used another door or two. At least a front passenger door.

I knew it right away because I have this book. This is an interesting view of it on the front cover.

What, am I the first one who got it right? :blink:

I started searching from Google with "Streamline Bus" and then after few more searches, I managed to find what it really is. Pretty cool car anyway.

Because it's so rare and odd it turns up in nearly every auto ID style quiz on forums so it's not surprising :D

I actually had to search for it the hard way!

Did you notice the cool single-spoke steering wheel on the one with the red upholstery? Very "Citroen-esque"...

The driver's seat has a different base. Perhaps it is actually attached to the floor.

I have tried to drive a car with it's driver's seat un-attached. It is ... difficult!
