Rust Heinz

Designer

Rust Heinz (October 18, 1914 – July 24, 1939) was famed for designing the 1938 Phantom Corsair, a prototype car built on a Cord 810 chassis by the coach builder Bohman & Schwartz, incorporated a Lycoming 190bhp V8 engine, weighed two tons and had seating capacity for six people.

The Phantom Corsair project was helped by finance from his aunt. Following his death, the car was never mass-produced and the prototype remains the only one ever made.
