  • Description

    There IS something new under the sun- it's not a space ship not a flying saucer- it's the Curtiss-Wright Air-Car. When you're in it, you're really riding on air.

    Get in- accelerate the conventional piston type engine ranging from 50 to 200 horse power - and with the greatest of ease the Air-Car rises six to twelve inches off the ground. Suspended on its cushion of low pressure air, the driver can manoeuvre in any direction - over any obstructed surface including water - in circles, forward, backward, sideways, - and there's no worrying about bumps in the road. Literally free as the air, no longer bound to the confines of the highway, the Curtiss-Wright Air-Car takes off across the fields - a potential boom to the farmer, rancher, fisherman and explorer - and a visible sign of the trends of the future.
