They Sure Don't Build 'Em Like They Used To

If you really want to travel the highways in style, there is no substitute for the 1952 Executive Flagship.

From an article describing this land leviathan in the Feb. 1953 issue of Popular Science Magazine:
It weighs 18 tons, rolls on 10 wheels, sleeps six, and not only has a portable swimming pool with diving board but is complete with kitchen, two bathrooms, a seven-foot bird’s eye maple bar, two refrigerators, wall-to-wall carpeting, radio-phonograph, 21-inch TV, movie screen, indirect lighting, wine cellar, air conditioning, intercom, radiotelephone, “pooch porch” for the dog, and three elephant guns in case you have to shoot your way through a herd of pachyderms on the Lincoln Highway.

And if this isn’t enough for you, the upper sun deck can be used to board your private helicopter.
