Toronado for 10 – Glenn Pray’s fiberglass front-wheel-drive Kruise-Aire
featured posts | Hemmings Daily



Quote:
Pray designed the Kruise-Aire to be built from two fiberglass halves that joined together at the beltline “like a walnut shell,” Malks writes. It would sit on a 120-inch wheelbase – just an inch more than the Toronado’s – and use the Toronado’s rear suspension as well as a number of off-the-shelf parts, including a Corvette front bumper, Pontiac headlamp doors, Camaro taillamps, GM pickup windshield, and 1934 Auburn grille screens. Aside from the driver’s door, it had only one entry door for passengers on the curb side. “It was more meant to be chauffeur driven,” Royce Kershaw Jr. said, countering Malks’s assertion that the Kruise-Aire was a sort of proto-minivan. - See more at: featured posts | Hemmings Daily

Would look better without the orange... just my opinion... not sure if I would call that a smile or a jaw drop.

Reminds me of an old TV series from the 70s, ARK II:
