    1938 Phantom Corsair “A six-passenger coupé prototype automobile built in 1938. Designer Rust Heinz planned to put the car into limited production. However, Heinz’s death in a car accident in July 1939 ended those plans, leaving the prototype Corsair as the only one ever built.” – Wikipedia

    The Phantom Corsair was a marvel of futuristic design when it was shown publicly in 1938. The uniquely laid out body gave it seating for 6 but only 2 doors and 2 windows either side, giving it a beautiful, clean profile and leaving it still looking futuristic, even 70+ years later. The Phantom was designed by Rust Heinz and Maurice Schwartz, based the concept car on the Cord 810. The engine was a Lycoming 4.7L 8-cylinder unit, producing 190 hp and with a top speed of 115mph.
