1954 flying car for sale at $1.25 million

Flying cars are years away from becoming a reality, but it turns one was built back in the 50s. The 1954 Taylor Aerocar N-101D was way ahead of its time and only five were made ever. Greg Herrick, the proud owner of one of these flying cars, is selling his for $1.25 million.

Herrick is a large aviation collector and has nearly 40 aircraft in his collection. The Taylor Aerocar was the first aircraft he ever owned when he bought it in the early 1990s. In order for the car to take flight, you’ll need to push the wings forward that are normally folded back in car mode. Although it looks difficult to assemble, it was originally marketed to be so easy that a women could do it “without soiling her gloves.”

The car has a take off speed and 55 mph and a cruise speed of 100 mph once in the air. Interesting enough, the car uses the same steering wheel for driving while in the air. Besides setting you back $1.25 million, you’ll also be required to purchase auto and aviation insurance for your new vehicle. Check out the following newsreel from 1951 on the Aerocar and let us know if you’d be interested in purchasing this dual-purpose vehicle.
