Firebird III was the third gas turbine prototype from General Motors. It was completed in 1958 as a two seats concept with a single shift control
system replacing the steering wheel, the brake and accelerator pedals.
The body was designed by Harley Earl who initiated GM Styling center activities.
Fighter aircraft shapes are recalled in this original design, translating the conviction of the time that automobile engine would be gas turbine
rather than piston engine, an evolution appeared on aircraft.
