Although it might look like a manipulated image at first glance, this unusual Pontiac is the real deal. The car was originally built by GM as one of two or three transparent display cars for the 1939 and 1940 World Fairs for $25,000 (an astronomical sum at the time).

Now this Plexiglas bodied Pontiac is now getting ready to hit the auction block at RM's upcoming St John's sale in July. If you have dreams of making this impressive and rare Pontiac your own it shouldn't come as a huge surprise this strange automotive sculpture won't come cheap. RM has released a pre-auction estimate of $275,000 – $475,000.
