Henry Ford was an innovator ahead of his time. By 1941, Ford had been working on ways to invent more fuel efficient and durable vehicles that could operate with alternative fuel sources. He came up with a hemp-bodied prototype automobile, which he foresaw running on alcohol generated from agricultural products such as Hemp.

Despite the breakthrough, hemp production was inhibited by draconian marijuana laws designed to protect fossil fuels and the production of standard textiles and materials. Unfortunately, mass production of the hemp car never happened.

In this video, the car is beaten with a hammer while no heavy damage is inflicted upon the car. Watch.
