The Phantom Corsair
The Phantom Corsair is a custom-built concept car designed by Rust Heinz, a member of the H. J. Heinz family. Distinguished by its unusual provisions for safety and comfort at high speeds, the six-passenger aluminum coupe was built by Bohman & Schwartz coachbuilding company in 1937.
Bohman & Schwartz built one Phantom Corsair prototype using a Cord 810 front-drive and a Lycoming engine, at a cost of approximately $24,000. Originally intended as a pilot model for a limited production, the Phantom Corsair plans were terminated when Rust was killed in an accident.
