Rohm & Haas introduced Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) to the world. You might know it better by its more common name, additionally coined by Rohm & Haas: Plexiglas. It’s commonly believed that R&H built the famous Pontiac “Ghost Car,” however, while it was made out of Plexiglas, it was constructed in-house at Fisher Body.
In the 1960s Rohm & Haas embarked on a series of one-offs that demonstrated the unique properties of the company’s plastic products. The second of these—the Explorer II—was based on a 1964 Chevrolet Corvette and featured a one-piece roof/rear window and clear headlamp covers in place of the flip units.
I don’t know about you, but I’d want to check on the Corvette’s A/C capacity before taking any daytime trips in it.
