I know I have said "Now I have seen Everything" ...

That is quite possibly the coolest car combination I have seen in quite some time.

That is so unique and crazy looking that it is amazing.

The icing on the cake is that the car is an Edsel.

 That is probably the most practical thing that I have ever seen.

 When (as it will) the car brakes down you are already home.

Isn't that a lot of weight for that little straight 6 to haul around? :o

Straight 6's have alot of torque so it might be a good choice.  I would be worried more about stopping it.

I remember seeing those when the camper craze hit in the late 60's. People used to take old Cadillacs etc and saw the rear of the body off and mount a truck camper. They were more common than people might think. There was a guy around Detroit that had two old car front ends like '47 fords? mounted back to back, he used to drive it around, they said his joke was "I don't know if I'm coming or going'"

 

Sidenote: That ladies hair on the left is absolutely amazing, that has got to be the biggest bouffant hairdo I've ever seen. :)

Many years ago, mid 70s I would guess, I worked at a place that co worker had a newer then full sized Ford sedan with a 5th wheel hitch on the roof.

Yes, the camper craze was and is still happening.

 Depends on the gearing.  '30s and '40s Chevrolet 1 1/2 ton had a 216.

Stopping and starting heck, I'd be more concerned about going around a corner particularly with the stacked washer and dryer...

Boy, now there’s a way to have your camper on the field at Hershey and not get booted - just set the price too high and claim it’s an appropriate item for sale...

I think I have a picture of the one on the right from 1970.

 

Two years and going away to college.
