Somebody figured out that a Smart Car is just an off-road buggy that hasn’t put its work boots on yet. Look at this little baby go!
Small, cheap, diesel, single-cab; the Smyth Performance Volkswagen “Ute” is the answer to the internet’s perfect truck. Just get yourself an old Jetta or Golf, a Sawz-All and prepare for glory!
You know how the saying goes; where there’s a will, there’s a way to turn some wacky old sedan into a pickup truck. And this guy’s ’85 Chrysler 5th Avenue “truck conversion” actually came out remarkably well.
U.S. Specialty Vehicles is offering a rebody for the Ford Super Duty that effectively turns the pickup into an oligarch assault vehicle. Not sure about its actual war readiness but it’s certainly going to scare the hell out of your neighbor’s Range Rover.
We know today’s Jeep Wrangler Unlimited as a four-door. But before that came out in 2007, the “Unlimited” was a long wheelbase two-door. That stretched setup was eliminated with the introduction of the current Wrangler bodystyle (JK), but the aftermarket’s just brought it back and it looks awesome.
We can talk about how bad we all want a Jeep Wrangler pickup, how insane it is to spend $178,000 on something just a few short years ahead of a horse-drawn carriage, or we can bask in the glory of what may be the most beast modern Jeep on Earth.
We’ve seen plenty of cars turned into trucks sort of “El Camino-style.” Some are prime, most look like they’re held together with spit and luck. But I’ve finally found a favorite because none have ever come out as clean and congruent as this 1977 Honda Civic.
What was once a 1985 Chevrolet S-10 was lured into some lunatic's shop of horrors and has emerged as what I'll approximate as "some kind of post-apocalyptic aristocrat's shooting brake." Plus rust. Wacky!
A Jaguar XJ with the cargo capacity of a pickup truck just might make a complete trip. You know, because you can carry all the spare parts you'll need? Zing. Regardless of reliability, this luxury sedan-turned-truck is actually pretty fetching.
Forget the fancy mustard, you can bet this badass custom Rolls Royce pickup is packin' nothing but BBQ sauce in the glovebox.
It's a story you've heard a thousand times(?) Recently single old timer is unsatisfied with the car-truckiness of his Subaru Brat and wants you to turn it into a different car-truck. Don't worry, he can pay. In cheap beer, potato salad, and stories about Deep Purple.
Inshriach House is a charmingly picturesque Edwardian country estate hotel of Scotland. Activities include axe throwing, sitting by the fire with tea, and now sleeping in the "Beer Moth"— a 1954 Commer fire truck converted into luxurious camping for two.
Clean. Tasteful. Elegant. These are not adjectives I tend to reach for when we're looking at a car converted into a pickup truck, but this 1979 Mercedes-Benz 300TD-El Camino lovechild is one of the prettiest Jimmy Carter-era Mercs I've ever seen.
A 1972 longbed Chevrolet C10 pickup crawled into a chrysalis and emerged as a beautiful butterfly of a hot rod with suicide doors, a scrunched up face, and front wheels open to the elements. Somehow, it all kinda comes together.
A reader spotted this perversion of what I think was once a Jeep Comanche, which now looks like some weird blend of overwrought retro sportiness sitting on a set of American Racing wheels.
Somehow, some way, the one and only 3-Series tow truck we spotted two years ago is still alive. And it's for sale, again!
The hoonalicious Australian car-trucks known as "utes" Down Under are slowly starting to proliferate in the US, thanks to a Colorado outfit dramatically underselling them as "modern-day El Caminos." This is how they're making El Camino dreams come true.
"Quail rigs" are exactly what they sound like; vehicles set up specifically for hunting little birds when "hunting" means riding around on a swivel chair strapped to the front bumper of a truck. But seriously, they're pretty damn cool.
I've certainly never seen a school bus sliced and re-welded to have a big, open flat section after the first three rows of seating, but that's exactly what a Georgian gubernatorial candidate seems to have built his campaign vehicle out of... toting a statue of a knight playing baseball, no less.
