Hooniverse Weekend Edition – A 1912 Ford "C" Cab Pie Delivery Wagon

This is an expired eBay listing, but it has been brought to my attention that this is owned by a Hooniverse Reader. Woo-Hoo!

1912 Ford For Sale
The car is not a fiberglass kit car, but one that was specifically built as a show car. There is so much detail in the original listing, that repeating the specifications within this posting is redundant. However, the seller did mention the following:

An interesting note: We entered this car in the First Annual George Barris Car Show in Culver City, California several years ago. We won 1st place, but the part that we really got a kick out of was George Barris was the judge. Everyone was saying to George that this car looked more like one of his cars than his own cars.

The highest bid for this car was $17,561. What do you think is the reserve on this special car? See the listing here.

    So who is the lucky Hooniverse reader that owns this rolling piece of history? Inquiring minds want to know…

    Having never seen anything like this before, that steering wheel is killing me.

      If you have to stop quickly, you'd better pray you've got that lap belt cinched up good and tight. Either that or that you've past your reproductive stage in life…

    Very cool…reminds me of the old Hot Wheels "T-Totaller" model from the late '70s.

    Damning praise indeed to be called more like a Barris car than any of Barris' cars. This looks very well done, but the baroque style of Barris isn't really my thing. I appreciate the work that went into it, and some of the subtle details are well thought out, and it's the details that can really make a custom car something truly special.
    This car is truly special. I just don't want to own it.

    Mmmm. Pie. I like eating pie. How cool that there were cars made to deliver it to me.

    It's definitely worth something to be able to own a car with California HORSELESS CARRIAGE license plates. Yum.
