some info: Only a single working Tri-Car Surburbanette was built and shown at the Universal Travel & Auto Sports Show at Madison Square Garden, New York City, held February 20-27, 1955. There were discussions of two others: one with a transparent panel above the seating area and a second with a removable fabric. There was no time for either one, considering that from concept design to a working car was under 4 months.[/QUOTE]

Good find ecomodded, knew gearheads around here will find it.

This specific Tri-Car, in collaboration with Bassons Industries in the Bronx, built this fiberglass panel delivery van in 1954.
