At the time of this aircraft's conception, it was hoped that it would turn out to be the aerial version of the Model T, but it's $12,500 price tag in 1936 was way too high for the average family to afford. The AC-35 could take off and land in 173 feet, and after folding back the rotors, the pilot could switch the motor to drive the rear wheel and propel the car to speeds of around 25mph. Not too shabby.... This was the only AC-35 built. [Nikon D300, Nikon 18-200mm Lens]
