The Astro-Gnome was a rather bizarre American automobile manufactured in 1956 by the Richard Arbib Co. of New York. Described as looking "like something out of a Flash Gordon film", the car had fluted aluminum side panels that had been anodized in different blending colors. It had a bubble canopy that gave unobstructed vision all around; this covered the passengers, but could be raised to allow walk-in entry and exit. Only one prototype was constructed. The chassis is that of a modified Nash Metropolitan and the body work was the creation of Andrew Mazzara of New York. The vehicle was presented at the 1956 New York International Auto Show.
