Transportation Exhibits at the New York World's Fair (1964)

The 1964 film World's Fair Report with Lowell Thomas took viewers through a preview of what the 1964 New York World's Fair would have to offer. Below is a short clip of the film that shows the transportation exhibits, including the paleo-futuristic Futurama.

World's Fair Report with Lowell Thomas can be found on the DVD 1964 New York World's Fair, released by Extinct Attractions Club.

Speaking of Transportation Exhibits at World's Fairs, I thought you might be interested in a documentary narrated by Gene Wilder called EXPO – Magic of the White City. Inecom Entertainment Company used High Definition footage to recreate the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair on DVD. It has a lot of information on the transportation projects at the fair. Here are a couple links for trailers and more info:
