This is a Derham-bodied prototype for a post-WWII American sports car and featured airplane inspired controls. It is a one-off vehicle designed by Gordon Buehrig. it is the first car in the world with a T-top roof. Buehrig patented the idea and sued GM when they used it on the 1968 Corvette. He received very little for his patent. This unique car includes fiberglass steerable front fenders.
The company name 'Tasco' is an abbreviation for 'The American Sportscar Company.' This mostly-aluminum prototype was created to inspire a contract with the Beech Aircraft Company for production of an aviation-styled automobile.By Daniel Vaughan | Jan 2018
