  The originals of this Harley Earl designed vehicle were ready for show in 1940, several others followed in 1953-54 a total of 12 were built and 9 still exist.
  General Motors used the "bus" to travel the country to exhibit new technology, stereo sound, television, microwave ovens and jet engines.  One was used by Oral Roberts early in his career as a stage.
  If you want one it's being sold at auction by Barrett-Jackson sometime this year, expect to spend a large sum.
