1956 GM reveals the XP 500 free-piston car...
Item # 678161
April 15, 1956
THE DETROIT NEWS, Apr. 15, 1956
* 1956 GM XP-500 concept car revealed
* First piston-free engine automobile
The front page has a nice banner headline: "Even Peanut Oil Can Power New Car" with photo of the GM XP-500 concept which was the very 1st piston-free engine to be put in a automobile. Probably only reported in a Detroit publication, very rare a such.
Complete 1st section only with 22 pages, binding holes along the spine slightly effects the text, otherwise nice.
