Cadillup: Cadillac Caribou "High Roller"

Ah yes, another 70s Cadillac pickup conversion.  This one was done by Caribou, supposedly out of the bay area, and has since been treated to a Tiffany Blue paint job, wood bed slats and, among other things, a "unique" high roller interior.


This is quite the project, but the $75K asking price is pure crack pipe.  Further, if one claims a vehicle like this has such a value, one should include finished pics!  There are no shots of the complete interior, and the seller claims a nice set of Boss Hogg horns is on the front, but we don't see it in the pics.

This is certainly a curiosity and the work appears to be done well.  What do you think it's worth?

$75,500 <<cough>>


While the entire concept is questionable, the work here appears to be well done.  Note the wood floor in the bed.


Front offers no shortage of lights nor decorative gee-gaws.  The seller says 7-foot-wide longhorns are included, but they aren't shown.


The seller proudly claims that the top is covered in albino alligator skin.


Here's a shot in the paint booth.


And here's a shot of the interior.  This is where the seller  get's the "high roller" name.  Oddly, no finished shots are included.


Here's a collage of interior shots - all "in progress."
