The interior had the gauges, warning lights and twin-grip aircraft-style steering control device. The car's height was under three feet, and access to the cockpit was provided by a hinged rear body/door section, a periscope rearview mirror on the roof provided a wide-angle view. The unibody construction had large boxed side sill members that added stiffness as well as housing a fuel cell on the passenger side. The bulkhead behind the driver and the forged aluminum windshield header provided rollover protection. Trick stuff in 1967.
