Would this be considered factory installed? (humor)

Recommended Posts

So, do you think this would be considered factory or deal installed options? :)

That looks to be factory-installed to me: Caterpillar factory, that is.  I didn't realize that Ford had sent all of its unsold 4 door Edsels to the Caterpillar factory for conversion into urban tractors, complete with back ho.  I'm impressed that it was also painted in Caterpillar yellow.  According to Fauxpedia, all but one of these magnificent machines were exported to the Kamchatka Peninsula, where they were used in snow removal operations ... or sumthin'.  A rare survivor indeed!

And someone had to go and over restore it with whitewalls. Philistines!! I bet it has a tissue dispenser and an umbrella holder, also. Hmmmph!!

I doubt the Umbrella holder but I would lay money on a Hiway Hi Fi under the Dash.

It was built several years ago, for the Houston, Texas art car parade.

If nobody messes it up it could be a famous as this Ford that doesn't know which way is forward.

Looks like the dog didn't know which way that Ford was going either. I'm imaging him dashing back and forth in  the road like a squirrel before they hit him.

Astounding.

 

I never realized that the Edsel was such a versatile vehicle, but the four door tractor was way ahead of it's time and I can understand why it didn't sell.

 

The two fronted Ford is a bit of a puzzlement. With all the people that don't know if they are coming or going, I have to wonder why this most appropriate model isn't in full production by all the auto manufacturers.

But they ARE Ford pieces! Mid-late 70s Ford pickup since they's plastic... My Fode pickem-ups always had the metal versions.

Perhaps it knows which way is forward but doesn't care.
