Probably expensive to build, tough to make waterproof, and if the suckers are buying what they have, no need to complicate the line.
Of course it would be easier to build now than in 1966, except for the belt and bag attach points, but I wonder how it would fare in the crash tests?

Band-aid for tires...

I'd buy that as an aftermarket conversion kit, Jim. Converting my Avalanche to a full bed pickup can be a hassle and I'd love to just push a button and have the seats fold up and the midgate fold down.

While I'm at it, why can't somebody invent power folding towing mirrors for it too? I hate having to manually fold the things when parking in tight spaces. /lazy

The Avalanche is not a truck as noted in the manual. It cannot tow or carry the load that a truck that size can do, cause it doesn't have a truck frame. Nor tow a fifth wheel trailer, cause of shape of rear bed.

A '58 Vette convertible towing a color-matching helicopter, what could be cooler?

You'd have to add scantily clad ladies to be cooler. :yesnod:

Shows how narrow those DC-3s were.

Now here's something every juvenile delinquent should have.:D
We used pipe caps and the oven mitt is a great idea.

At first glance I thought this van looked silly. But the more I look at it and the clever integration of the '57 design, the more I like it.

I found the tow vehicle for the camper in post #1580. It's a '57 Chevy "Handyman" two door wagon.
