One of the weirdest cars ever designed - Dodge Deora
According to us one of the weirdest cars piece with the Dodge Deora. First
crafted in 1965, it appears to resemble something you’d see during the time of The Jetsons. The widened truck bed provided ample space for transporting materials (or even people). In 2009, this model was sold for a whopping $325,000.
The Alexander brothers commissioned the design from Harry Bentley Bradley in 1964. It was unveiled in their home town during the Detroit Autorama in 1967, where it won nine awards including the Ridler Award. The Deora is based on the compact Dodge A100 pickup. The back hatch of a 1960 Ford station wagon served as the windshield. It was chopped, sectioned, and channelled to create the fully functional, futuristic-looking pickup. The slant six engine and 3-speed manual transmission were moved rearward 15 inches, out of the cab and into the bed and covered by the hard tonneau. Entry into the gold-painted custom is achieved by lifting up the windshield, swiveling the lower gate and entering through the front.
