Here we have a home-built hot rod with parts from a 1950s International pickup, Jeep mail truck, 1960s Mercedes and Chevy S-10. I’m sure I missed something, but, regardless, the end result is unique.
We’ve featured our share of van to truck conversions, but haven’t previously encountered one based on the creatively named 1980s “Toyota Van.” This seems like a winning combination of weirdness and reliability.
Not too long ago, we featured a hot rod made by partially dismantling a 1986 Corvette. Today’s feature is similar, but started with a 1994 Dodge Viper and ended with custom fiberglass bodywork.
For its annual Easter parade of awesomeness (the Easter Safari), Jeep created a Renegade-based Comanche pickup, which was revealed in 2016. Today’s feature is a replica, which appears to be well done.
For sale is one step along the continuing path to the flying car. This one is alleged to have flown, but some are quick to point out that it was tethered to a crane at the time. You’ll have to make your own decision on whether this is worth $1 million or more…
This might just be the most 70s Vette ever – at least among those NOT used in Corvette Summer with Mark Hamill.
Here we have an English truck (always a questionable choice to begin with) modified with a vinyl roof, gigantic Gucci logo and really, really ugly wheels. Needless to say, we’re not big fans of this “VIP” treatment, nor of brand whoring.
Here we have an old-school trike running a Ford 302 (4.9L) V8 and C4 three-speed automatic trans. The seller provides shockingly little info,but does point out that it has a crushed velvet interior. What else do you really need to know? Continue reading Gold Dust V8-Powered Trike
Here’s a fine piece of ‘Muricana for Memorial Day. What we have here is a Plymouth Valiant wagon with Barracuda bits sitting on top of a Jeep Wagoneer frame and powered by an Olds 455. Aside from the automatics trans, this is basically perfect! As a matter of fact, we’ll accept an AT on an off-road vehicle like this.
Oh, did we mention the American Indian-themed, carved wood dashboard?
What we have here is a period hot rod made from a Triumph Spitfire, a Chevy 327, a Corvair transaxle and a lot of fiberglass (plus bondo?). The end result is, well, unique.
