known as the pontiac ghost car, the transparent automobile was constructed based on the de luxe six four-door touring pontiac sedan. the show car was built by general motors in partnership with rohm and hass — the chemical company that created the plexiglass — and had a total construction cost of $25,000. in the model, the plexiglass created an exact replica that replaced the outer sheet metal. to give it a cleaner look, the structural metal underneath featured a copper wash and all the hardware was chrome plated. the tires and the rubber moldings were all made in white, adding to the sterile aesthetics.
