    This 1939 Pontiac Plexiglas Deluxe Six "Ghost Car," once on display at the 1939-40 New York World's Fair, could now be yours, at the right price.
    The first full-size transparent car built in America (at a reported cost of $25,000), is expecting to fetch somewhere between $275,000 and $475,000.
    The Plexiglas vehicle was a collaboration between General Motors and Rohm & Haas. It features a Plexiglas body that exposes the vehicle's innards.

    Following the New York World's Fair, the "Ghost Car" went on a nationwide tour, and then spent several years on display at the Smithsonian Institute before passing through a succession of Pennsylvania Pontiac dealers.

    Also up for auction, is a rare 1932 Packard Twin Six Individual Custom Convertible Sedan by Dietrich. It was purchased by entertainer Al Jolson for $6,600. Jolson, who was once known as "The World's Greatest Entertainer," died in 1950. The Packard is expected to be auctioned at between $950,000 and $1,150,000.

    RM Auctions' St. John's sale will be held July 30 at the Inn of St. John's in Plymouth, Michigan.
