The first three-wheeled, multi-directional Dymaxion concept car, designed by Buckminster Fuller, was completed. It had a steel chassis, a body made of ash wood, covered with an aluminium skin and topped with a painted canvas roof and was steered by a single rear wheel. The engine at the rear was a Ford V8, giving it a top speed of 120 mph. Dymaxion was one of several futuristic, rear-engined cars developed during the 1930s. Although it was never mass-produced, the Dymaxion helped lead to public acceptance of new streamlined passenger cars, such as the 1936 Lincoln-Zephyr.
