The Ford FX Atmos was a concept car made by Ford in 1954.
The driver steered with hand grips and driver sat in the centre of the car.
This futuristic caused a stir at the 1954 Chicago Auto Show. According to the vice-president of Ford, its purpose was to "represent one of the many avenues which styling could take into the future" The vehicle contained various gadgets associated with aeronautics, such as a panoramic cabin, ailerons in the back and two frontal sharp tips as well as a radar screen.
Concept cars from the early 1950s borrowed style elements from jet aircraft styling of the time. The Atmos featured a glass dome roof, tail fins, rocket exhaust taillights and needle-like radio antennae protruding from front fender pods. The radical cockpit had a centre-mounted driver’s seat and two passenger rear seats.
