Concept cars are widely considered a Postwar phenomenon, as most of those flight-of-fancy show cars arose in the 1950s. But in the 1930s, a very few visionary stylists were starting to explore the idea of a car that would go beyond a close look next year’s showroom model, to a vision of the car of the future. To create a show car the designer not only had to create something completely new in a vacuum, but they also needed the ability to spend time and money that wasn’t reflected on the bottom line.

For the Thunderbolt, one stylist wasn’t enough. It would take the onset of war to bring together two greats in one place.
