The Wonderful World of Wheels (1966)

Ryan’s wonderful dialogue starter about plastics in early hot rods, customs and race cars and trucks, and that reminded me of a person of the early pioneers of bubble top plastic domes on customs, Bill Cushenbery. His extremely very first scratch-crafted creation was the iconic ‘Silhouette’ which went on to be a a number of-display winner, a Sizzling Wheel, and an AMT model kit. Invoice developed it as a fully driveable, roadworthy creation, and that is why it was showcased in this CBS Tv Exclusive from September of 1966 identified as ‘The Superb Entire world of Wheels”, with Lloyd Bridges as your host. The total movie is really well worth a check out for the 60s go-karts, slot cars and trucks, dune buggies, display vehicles, and a lot more. Lloyd drives the Silhouette in the course of the opening sequence alongside the Pacific Coastline Highway and at moments through the demonstrate. Even though this video clip has been shared on the HAMB just before, I imagined it was truly worth sharing yet again, and highlighting the custom made car & incredibly hot rod times for you:
