1954 Ford FX-Atmos: The Futuristic Car with Glass Dome Roof, Tail fins, and Rocket exhaust taillights

In 1954, the FX-Atmos was introduced at the Chicago Auto Show with a glass dome roof, tail fins, rocket exhaust taillights, and needle-like radio antennae on its fender pods. There was a center-mounted driver’s seat and two rear seats. Rather than a steering wheel, the “Roadscope” radar screen mounted on the dash provided highway information.

One source claims that the FX-Atmos was considered as a candidate for a nuclear power plant. It has also been argued that it was a significant inspiration for Gerry Anderson’s TV series of the same name.
