1935 Streamline Car With Camper by Angelo R. Noble

This post was originally published on this site

Built in 1935 by Angelo R. Noble just north of Los Angeles, it clearly takes its influence from the other streamlined products of the 1930s. And despite looking vaguely like a tank, it seems like it’d be a disaster in a car wreck. Especially since it was built to tow a “streamlined” camper, adding plenty of weight to an already wobbly design.

As the short film about the car notes, the vehicle needs a “periscope” to serve as a rear view mirror. And to top it all off, the only door to the car is located at the front of the vehicle. Again, it seems like it’d be a disaster if you had the misfortune of running into anything.

“He may call it streamlining,” the narrator of the video notes, “but it looks like a turtle to us.”
