Fairchild’s Experimental Safety Vehicle for U.S. Dept of Transportation, ca. 1972

By December 1972, this model of the Fairchild Experimental Safety Vehicle (ESV) should be a reality, and in the hands of the Department of Transportation for evaluation. Among the safety features designed into it are: a wide, over-the-roof rear-view periscope; aerospace structural roll cage; hydraulic shock-absorber front bumper; torsion-hinge rear bumper; airbags; and padded interior. Fairchild is competing with AMF for a contract to build 12 test ESVs.
