The Albatross was an American sports car venture that was planned in 1939, but never got off the ground. The plan had been to market an ultra-streamlined four-seat tourer body, built on a standard Mercury chassis which was extended to a 137" wheelbase,[1] based on a European custom-made car owned by cartoonist Peter Arno. The proposed car was advertised in at least one periodical, and at least one was built.[2]
