One of only two "Ghost Cars" ever built will be up for grabs at the RM Auction in Michigan on July 30 and the plexiglas 139 Pontiac Deluxe Six could fetch up to $475,000.

Despite it's long life, the transparent vehicle has only been driven 98 miles since being introduced at the 1939-40 New York World Fair, Metro reported.

General Motors and chemical company Rohm & Haas teamed up to build the automobile that showed off its mechanical innards. In its day, it cost a hefty $25,000 to build.

The clear-bodied car was a hit at the New York expo and went on to exhibits in the Smithsonian, before falling into the hands of several Pennsylvania Pontiac dealers, CNET reported.
