The Phantom Corsair is a Concept Car from 1938. It is a six-passenger Coupe that was designed by Rust Heinz, a member of the H. J. Heinz family, and Maurice Schwartz of the Pasadena, California based Bohman & Schwartz coachbuilding company. The design was a departure from contemporary car design and it did away with many features, common at the time, that were eventually abandoned by mainstream designers.[1]

In 1938 The Phantom Corsair was featured in The Young in Heart comedy as the "Flying Wombat" automobile.

William Stroh of Grosse Point, Michigan owned the Phantom Corsair from circa 1943-1945. Willam was the third owner of the car.

The car is currently being displayed at the Harrah Collection at National Automobile Museum in Reno, Nevada.
