It was in 1934 that an American, William Bushnell Stout thought of an out of the box idea and went to build one – Scarab.
To make maximum use of space, he placed a V8 Ford engine at the rear and placed the steering wheel just above the front wheels. The vehicle was made in such a way that it was contained within one box, a very different concept in the mid-thirties. The rear seats were a fold-down seat that could be converted in to a bed, the front passenger seat could be turned back to face a table that was placed against the wall of the car for a quick meeting.
Only 9 cars could be sold as US$ 5000 (Rs. 320,000) in 1935 was a steep amount or today’s equivalent of US$ 100,000 (Rs.66 lakhs).
