The New York Auto Show with Stunning Cars from the 1960s

An international auto show is held annually in Manhattan in late March or early April. It takes place at the Jacob Javits Convention Center. It usually begins or closes the day after Easter weekend. The show has been held annually since 1900. Originally held at the New York Coliseum, the show moved to the Javits Center in 1987. It was the first automobile exhibition in North America.

Several auto companies release their production and concept vehicles to the press every year before the show opens. There are individual programs and conferences, forums, symposiums, and other gatherings related to automobiles during the show. Additionally, the Greater New York Auto Dealers Association (GNYADA) and the International Motor Press Association (IMPA) hold corporate meetings and events. The economic impact of the ten-day event is estimated to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

Here are some stunning photos of the New York Auto Show from the late 1960s.

While Chevrolet's Astro I may never see production, some features from it are sure to appear. One is the periscopic rear-view mirror mounted in the roof that gives the driver a panoramic view of happenings behind. Another is a practice common to truck fleets, that of painting the hood in a non-reflective black. There is too much interest in "twin-grip" steering controla as featured in the Astro I for this idea to lay dormant for long, and the idea of putting all of the hand controls on the left in a console integral with the panel makes sense. As for the seats, the automatic roof entry and reclining feature may make lower car practical.
