The GM Runabout was a concept car built in 1964.

The Runabout was a three-wheeled commuter car with the rear end of the car containing two detachable shopping trolleys with wheels that would fold away when the trolley was parked in the vehicle, handy for trips to the mall or grocery store.

There was space for 2 adults in the front and 3 children in the rear.

The front wheel could turn 180 degrees for easy parking.

Aerodynamically similar to the Firebird IV concept, the Runabout featured a sliding canopy which provided access to the four seats.

Driver equipment was sparse, though the Runabout had no driveline, and had to be rolled into the showroom.

The vehicle was first presented at the General Motors Futurama Exhibit in 1964 at the New York World’s Fair.
