Ford Aurora on Display at New York World's Fair Product Salon, 1964

Summary

Ford debuted its Aurora concept car at the 1964 New York World's Fair. The futuristic station wagon featured illuminated panels along its body sides; a polarizing sunroof that changed from transparent to opaque with the push of a button; and, instead of a conventional steering wheel, a powered steering bar that required just one half turn from lock to lock.
