The 1949 Taylor Aerocar went into low-volume production, and the surviving prototype resides in the Experimental Aircraft Association museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
His machine attained government certification as an aircraft.
It sold for $25,000 and cruised at 100 m.p.h.
The plane had a pusher propeller in the rear powered by a 150-horsepower Lycoming 0-320 engine.
The Aerocar could pull the wings and rear portion of the plane on a trailer as shown in the last photo.
