The Rubber Shell





The infamous rubber shell. Used throughout all four seasons of the series, this shell was designed to slip over the top of the cars during stunt scenes. Other cars could hit KITT and you wouldn't see any damage. Once the scene was done, the shell could be lifted off to reveal the damage to the car. Unfortunately, the only pictures I have of the shell off the car are the two seen here. Its current whereabouts are unknown. Do you have additional pictures of this shell or any information on its whereabouts? If so, let us know!

  1. I think, that the on the second photo is polyester resin shell for the stunt car. I mean this jumping car for example:

  2. I never knew they used rubber shell for KITT during the shooting. Of course, I was a kid back then

  3. It's funny, you would THINK they would have made a rubber front nose (with headlight flaps) so the car would look a little less awkward.
