Advertising Prop: Surf City Belly Up Van

Needless to say, advertising is all about getting attention.  Sometimes, that yields genuinely odd vehicles, like this Ford van body mounted upside down on a Ford Ranger pickup.


The base vehicle here is a 195K miles, four cylinder-powered Ranger with 5-speed manual trans - probably a pretty basic model.  The ad proudly lists a new radio and a full-time backup camera that allows for some rear visibility.  We guess the radio is useful for the long trips one is likely to take in an upside-down vehicle (?).

This is basically as described.


Same from this side!


It appears that the van doors swing open to allow access to the truck door.  Closing it up once inside might be a two person job?


One more...why not?


Here's the Ranger door - note the wheel near the hood.


Ranger appears basic and stock, except for aforementioned audio head unit, though we're not sure what's in the lower right of the image.
