The reason was the two 180bhp aviation engines to either end turning 4 blade fans to create lift and propulsion. Unlike a hover craft with a huge fan to the rear the air from the internal fans was directed through moving vents all around the sides providing steering, thrust and braking!!!!! It also lacked the flexible skirt which restricted its hovering height to about 6-12”s which meant it’s off road capabilities was also restricted. The Army finally stopped the project in 1960 and with that production never got going. After all as a car replacement it was lacking not only in practicality, size, noise and manoeuvrability but also speed, as best it would only do 38mph, but check out the video's below and judge for yourself.
