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.”
