The Story How the Batmobile was Born out of a 1955 Lincoln Futura Show Car .

Article Called: Service Tips on the Batmobile
 
Holy Ribicoff, the Batmobile's unsafe!  Can you imagine Gotham's dynamic duo pursuing the dastardly doers of evil deeds in a customized 1955 Lincoln styling car that doesn't meet today's GSA safety specs?  It's like finding out about Santa.
 
Despite such exotic accessories as an automatic tire repair device, three anti-theft rockets, and laser gun "eyes", that appear in the TV script, you'd find something completely different if the caped crusader wheeled his bat fuzz black chariot into your shop.
 
Exactly what you'd find is a 5550 lb, 129 inch wheel base Lincoln Futura that a California customizer had 3 weeks to dress up in "bat fuzz paint" and fins. Note: The Fuzzy look was to help with the camera shots in the TV series, gloss paint would reflect with all the lighting on the TV set.
 
They say in the public relations department of the Lincoln Mercury Division that the Futura cost $250,000.  It was a one-of-a-kind public opinion tester.  And it sported a 500 hp engine designed for racing, fender air scoops for air conditioning and brake cooling, and a twin-bubble plastic canopy.
 
After being dragged in and out of car shows for about a year, the Futura went to Hollywood providing some interesting background for a Glenn Ford and Debbie Reynolds movie.  Then it went back to mothballs in Dearborn.
 
A Los Angeles customizer George Barris bought the Futura at an undisclosed price on the long shot that he could get it into a horror movie.  No luck.
 
Then, Holy Cloverleaf, he got the call from TV's stately Wayne Manor.  Ten men went on a double shift and when the cameras started rolling three weeks later, Batman and Robin had wheels.  The Batmobile was born.
 
Futura's rear fins were extended to a seven foot length, the grille was reshaped into a bat face, a roll bar was built between the seats, police flashing light was installed, and three "anti-theft rocket tubes were mounted on the rear deck, along with the laser.
 
The turbine exhaust outlet is just for effect.  And the parachutes?  Well, they, of course, allow the Batmobile to make a 360 degree turn on a two lane highway while running at a secret top speed.  You never had any doubts about that--did you?  Would you believe 36 degrees?  Three point six?
 
     
1) The father of the Batmobile was an experimental 1955 Lincoln Futura.  Front was given a bat face, rear was given bat-fin motif and then it was painted "bat fuzz" black.  Three anti-theft rockets were also set up on the rear deck.
 
2)  This is not the work of Mr Freeze.  It's just the work of Ford engineers testing the Lincoln Futura in a cold chamber, before the car was converted into the Batmobile.
 
3)  The rear view exposes cowled lights "jet" tailpipe.  The sound and flames are merely special effects.
