The 1958 Pontiac Firebird III

The Firebird III was the first space age inspired car by General Motors. The Firebird III has an aerodynamic fiberglass body and is pearlescent silver-gold in color. It has a wide, tapered nose, twin plastic bubble canopies over the passengers and a high dorsal fin at the tail. The car's most significant single feature, its control system, features combined and improved versions of "no-hands" steering and the single-stick Unicontrol introduced separately by GM Research Laboratories.
