Push-Me-Pull-You/2: 1957 Ford Fairlane Station Wagon

Ok, maybe this car is not a station wagon anymore as it has been rebuilt welding two ’57 Ford Fairlane front clip in order to build a “palindrome” car, like the VW Beetle published here a little more than two years ago.

But, differently from the double-faced VW Beetle, this car was build in 1968 and the actual seller says that he spotted it on a old magazine ad: he still found out that the car was still for sale and he bought it.

When he bought it the car had two engines and so it could be driven by both side but unfortunately, in such configuration, the car could do a top speed of 45 m.p.h. as the drivetrain had a 45 degrees angle, so the actual owner decided to rebuild the car in a “driveable” configuration and now, even if the car looks perfectly simmetric, it can be driven by one side only. The seller wrote a very long description about the history of the car and the job which he performed on it, maybe a “tl, dr” section could be a good idea. Find it for sale here in Tolland, CT, with bidding at $9,100 and reserve not met.
