If you live in Lyndhurst, New Jersey and have a 1993 Ford Explorer with 249,911 miles on it, the only reasonable thing to do is convert it into a pirate ship. That solid logic coupled with the lure of cash-money from a Halloween costume contest led its creators to build this masterpiece. We were heartbroken to see this swashbuckling creation went for only $499, it would have made a wonderful Jalopnik staff car for our New York division. The only problem would have been the inevitable Ninja attacks. The very capitalized eBay advert we copied below is a study in surrealist writing.
WOW... IS THE BEST WAY TO DESCRIBE THIS FORD EXPLORER CONVERTED INTO A PIRATE SHIP. THIS SHIP WAS BUILT AS A HALLOWEEN PROP, AND IN COMBINATION WITH OUR PIRATE COSTUMES, HELPED US EARN A LOT OF MONEY THIS HALLOWEEN. THIS SHIP TOOK SEVERAL "BEST COSTUME" PRIZES EARING US THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS. THIS SHIP IS BUILT OVER A FORD EXPLORER THAT STILL RUNS AND DRIVES. THE WHEELS HAVE CLEARANCE, IT CAN BE STEERED EASILY. THIS IS A VERY DETAILED RECREATION OF AN AUTHENTIC PIRATE SHIP. PROFESSIONALLY PAINTED AND AIRBRUSHED. DOOR IN REAR FOR EASY ACCESS. PERFECT FOR NEXT HALLOWEEN, UPCOMING THANKSGIVING DAY, AS A PROP, BUCKANEERS VEHICLE, OR MAYBE IN PARADES. A LOT OF TIME WAS TAKEN TO BUILD THIS SHIP, AND WE ARE OFFERING IT AT NO RESERVE. SHIP COMES WITH CLEAN TITLE AND CAN BE REGISTERED. A CUSTOM SAIL CAN BE MADE FOR AN ADDITIONAL $100. THIS IS A VERY RARE OPPORTUNITY TO PURCHASE A WELL BUILT PIRATE SHIP/PROP ETC FOR A VERY LOW INVESTMENT. THANK YOU FOR BIDDING!!
