Click on the image below to go to IMGUR and view an image sized at 1,024px X 768px which you can zoom in on! You'll get an image which allows you to pretend your nose is pressed against this Forbidden-Planet-like dashboard!
The horizontal feature on top in the center actually extends forward through the lower edge of the windshield and out onto the hood of the car!
And notice that there's another one on the passenger's side! I have no idea what either of them are for -- but I love 'em!

1962 Ford Seattle-ite XXI
The Seattle-lite was an unusal six-wheeled automobile that incorporated advanced innovations -- but a full-size version was never built, despite what seems to be one in the picture below.
