This is the "first" version of the Futurliner. It followed the Streamliner that was introduced in 1936. This particular GM publication is dated April, 1941.

Note the clear canopy. It must have been a beautiful view for the driver but, due to the heat from the sun, it was eliminated when the Parade went back on the road after the WWII. 

Please follow the rest of the links for this article. It is rich with pictures and text describing the set up of the show.

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
If you have any additional information about the history or whereabouts of additional Futurliners, we would like to hear from you. Our objective is to capture as much of the history of these vehicles as possible.
