About This 1939 GM

Posted: 28 Jan 2008

We are proud to present a custom-restored General Motors 1939 Futurliner. The end result of over twenty years of restoration work, this beautiful vehicle, a wonderful reminder of American innovation and invention, is now offered for sale.

This unique and beautiful art deco style show bus was part of General Motors’ Parade of Progress in 1939 and the 1939 New York Worlds Fair, and a traveling exhibit of General Motors products until 1956. One of twelve built, nine now exist with only four of these in running condition. This bus was the first to be back on the road since the late 1980's. A sister coach recently sold at the prestigious Barrett-Jackson automotive auction for $4.3M.

This Futurliner was recently custom painted in a pearl white finish with blue and maroon accents, and custom lettering. It has an Art Deco interior with stainless steel and chrome highlights, and a sculpted metal ceiling with matching bar and interior door facings. For the ultimate in entertaining, there is an 8’ bar with built-in bar stools, and a carpeted and upholstered rear lounge area. Storage areas, AC power, front circular entryway, sculptured light fixtures, and carpeting throughout highlight this amazing machine. It is fully licensed and road legal.

Restoration is complete except for the bathroom and bar plumbing. Water and sewage tanks are not installed.

A recognized work of art, it has been featured in Arriving Magazine, California Magazine, the Los Angeles Times, RTD Magazine, Auto Week, Car Collector Magazine, and Motor Trend Magazine. It also had a starring role in the HBO movie Firepower.

This Futurliner was a featured attraction at the 4th Annual Bus Conversion Convention at the Orange County fairgrounds in Costa Mesa, and the Family Motor Coach Association's 22nd Annual Winter International Convention at the Pomona Fairgrounds. It was also featured in a one-hour special, Homes on the Road, on Homes & Gardens TV, and another one-hour special, Modern Marvels, the Story of Buses, on the History Channel.

A fully drivable machine, there are only 8,000 miles on the engine and transmission.
