The Gadabout was an automobile designed and built by Ray Russell of Detroit, Michigan. Built largely of aluminum and magnesium on an 80-inch wheelbase, the car weighted 1,100 pounds. The build was completed in 1944, at the time Ray was the President of the Detroit Industrial Designer's Association.[1]
