At the end of 1951, after winning the first two…
Calling this truck an overlander is a bit of stretch. It’s more of a storage unit on wheels. So naturally you would think a moving truck would be a good start. Nope. Too easy! This is a Ford F350. Can you pull a car and 30ft sailboat with your moving truck?
This thing looks more like a transformer than a moving truck. Check this out. “To change camper into car-carrier, the stove and sink rise to the ceiling and the double bed is raised over the car.” Oh yeah, just raise that sink to the ceiling and drive a car right in the back!
Or you can put a motorcycle back there?
Oh you want to ride with a friend? Yeah there’s another motorcycle on the front bumper too!
You want to bicycle? Yep that’s out back. Its like a club med on wheels. Where’s the volleyball court.
Looking at the side view Im still curious how a Porsche spyder or Cobra fits in the back bed of Ford F350? My favorite part is the front windows from a boat above the cab. I’ve been wanting to do that to a limousine for years now. Here it is camping so you know it actually went places.
For those of you that might want to buy it, the information is here. And for when the ad is long gone, here is the original description. He’s asking $30,000.
