Here's a rare photo of the 367-80 "Dash 80," under construction at Boeing Plant 3 in Renton, WA. In-flight later...

Here's a couple of links to shots at the San Diego Air & Space Museum's archive on Flickr of the Dash 80 featuring Bill Boeing. Note the original (now seemingly odd) nose profile of the Dash 80.

In this book there are several drawings of projects/studies around Boeing 707 design.
http://www.amazon.com/Boeing-707-Pioneer-Jetliner-History/dp/0760306753/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1385264660&sr=8-1&keywords=boeing+707


pg 20
- Similar to B-47: 2 jet double pods and shoulder mounted swept wings.


pg 22
- Boeing model 473. Idem first one in pg 20, but only 2 engines
- Boeing model 473-25. Idem first one in pg 20, but 6 engines: 4 jet pods 2 single inboard and 2 double outboard


pg 23

pg 28
- Boeing 707-7-27 like dash 80 but with 4 turboprops and wing tip tanks
- Boeing 707-7-39 like dash 80 but with 6 engines: 4 jet pods 2 single outboard and 2 double inboard, and wing tip tanks


pg 58
- Boeing 707-020 Shortened version with only 2 engines


pg 75

Here is a 1950s Boeing promotional film detailing the Boeing 367-80 (N70700), better known as the "Dash 80," recently posted by Periscope Film on YouTube. It's cliche, but appropriate in this instance, the film ends with the caption "This is not the end, but the beginning."
