For those that have ever fell in love with the 1953 GM Futurliner, or have been lucky to see the fully restored-to-original condition one (like Oldsmoboi, Ocnblu and myself at the '06 AACA Fall Meet in Hershey), you will appreciate this new book. And knowing that the purchase of the book helps to maintain the restored 'liner makes it even better.

A great new book for car and truck buffs, General Motors Parade of Progress & A Futurliner Returns has just been published by Futurliner #10’s owner, the National Automotive and Truck Museum of the United States, Inc. (NATMUS).

With 232 glossy 8 1/2 x 11 pages (24 in color) and 380 pictures, the book tells two big stories: 1) the story of the General Motors Parade of Progress from 1933 to 1956 and 2) the amazing story of the resurrection and authentic restoration of Futurliner #10 in Beaverdam, Michigan by a group of highly motivated volunteers referred to as The Restoration Team. In addition, there are stories told by Paraders (men who traveled with and presented the various exhibits that constituted the parade) along with stories of each of the 9 (out of 12) surviving Futurliners.

The “General Motors Parade of Progress” section and the “Paraders’ Profiles” were written by Bruce Berghoff of Arcadia, Michigan, author of The GM Motorama: Dream Cars of the Fifties. The story of the restoration of Futurliner #10 was written by George Ferris, author of several articles on automotive history. Ably edited by Donald Bratt, a restoration team member. The book is available from the NATMUS E-Bay Store or by calling NATMUS at (260) 925-9100. The price by mail is $35 (which includes postage, taxes and handling) or $29.95 at the NATMUS museum store. All proceeds go to the National Automotive and Truck Museum for the preservation and ongoing exhibit of Futurliner #10.
