With its short nose, one-box design, and flexible interior with a removable table and rotating seats, the Scarab was decades ahead of its time. Designer William Stout planned to build hundreds at his Detroit plant, but high prices and hard economic times reduced production to a handful, and World War II ended the dream. Of the nine Scarabs that were actually built, five survive today.
