It has been a couple of years since we last brought up the quirky General Motors Futurliner. Twelve of these (back-then) futuristic buses were built for the 1939 New York World’s Fair to showcase what GM was capable of at the time, but only nine exist to date. When classic truck and bus restorer Brad Boyaijan stumbled across one back in 2002, it didn’t come with enough parts for him to restore it, so he planned to use it for parts for two other Futurliners he was restoring.
Instead of letting the 30 ton piece of General Motors history go to waste, he turned it into a transporter for all his other projects. The modded Futurliner sits on a 178 CCC garbage truck chassis and is powered by an 855 cubic inch inline six-cylinder diesel engine. The body has been modified with a tilt cab for easy engine access and rides on air springs rated at 20,000 pounds.
Boyaijan is asking $1.25 million for the Futurliner, which Autoblog found for sale on American Movie Trucks. If you can afford it, we can hardly think of a better way to haul some classic General Motors metal around than on the back of a Futurliner.
