I like it!

I can see myself using a '57 Champ four door we have in the junk yard. If I ever finish that Daytona...

This is not a trailer, but a sofa made out of a 57 Studebaker

I've seen one of those on eBay before. It must've been a couple of years ago.

Now that I think about it, I could take the rear half from a Wagonaire and make something like this out of it.

Jeff Rice has the right idea, he has a Coupe Express bed he's making into a trailer. I'll let him tell more about it.

I kind of cringe when a decent car is cut up for a gimick thing..
What a squirrel this one is.
It's so well engineered he has to add 200# of dumbell weights to keep the tongue on the ground.
Betcha it tows like a pig, too...

The Wagonaire would be better for wind resistance since you could open the back. I imagine this Packard thing has a lot of wind resistance. It is probably hard to pull down the highway!

Jeff,

That is probably part of the ground effects package that helps keep it from becoming airborne once you start moving and begin to get lift under the roof. [}:)]

I'd love to have this if I could cut the car just behind the door frames and graft on another trunk section cut just forward of the trunk hinges. Then you graft the two together. I've seen this done with a 1970 Caddie. It sounds strange, and looks really cool.

Sorry, this one just looks like a waste of good materials.
