indeed its really legendary car, which were about few months away from being ready formass production.
but it never happened because rust died on self caused accident (did too careless u-turn on a road which had pretty high traffic)
and being bit more exact with details:
Rust Heinz - body design (blueprints), also ideas of all kind gadgets which were
assembled in Phantom Corsair six-passenger coupe.
Bohman & Schwartz - built body and assembled it on lightly modified cord chassis.
I think the Blueprint is far from useable. Much to small. I think it is possible to buy the patent files at the US patent office. Heres the link to the patent office database. Maybe there are some more. The car was used in the 2002 computer game "Mafia - The City of Lost Heaven" as a low poly model. It is possible to extract the car from that game for use as reference.
I first saw that car in a book called "American Cars" by Leon Mandel, depicted from the front and it struck me highly uncanny. Now seeing the rest of the car, it is not so weird after all. With all images available on the web and all your c&c i could do a reasonably accurate 3d model (-:
ettore was kind enough to send me more reference material -- with overall dimensions, Niko... -- so it's getting hard for me to say no.
I have some urgent jobs to undertake but can take care of that in due course.
Niko and i could do this together, i mean sharing all the references, he on Rhino, i on Max, so we could go as accurate as possible. What do you say Niko? :roll:
