A FORD IDEA FIFTY YEARS AGO ~

1962 Ford Seattle-Ite XXI Concept Car
The 1962 Ford Seattle-ite

 

Back in the 50’s, everyone thought that we would have flying nuclear powered cars,
hover cars, etc. In 1962 the Ford Motor Company was advertising the never-massed-
produced car of the future…the Ford Seattle-ite, named for the 1962 World’s Fair
in Seattle. Some of the interior features included effortless fingertip steering, a 
travel programing computer and a viewing screen that would show performance,
road and weather conditions, an automatically rolling road map, and estimated
time of arrival for any designation selected. The four front wheels would also turn
in tandem.
