That is odd. His trouble will be sentimental value versus actual value. I would hope that a family member would want it, but you never know family dynamics.

I applaud grandpa for turning his vision into a functional vehicle. Not my vision, but if it made him happy then good on him. I wonder how many people laughed at Ed Roth when he was building his cars...not to say that the "Everbuilt" will ever reach the status of the "Mysterion" but I am sure that it already has in his grandson's mind. I hope that he finds someone who thinks the truck is a great as grandpa did...methinks that the price may drop considerably if such a person came along.

That isn't the wildest or worse custom that's been on CL. Not to my liking but maybe someone out there will like it.

It has been on CL here for a while. It looks like it would be best to let one of the grandkids have it and remember gramps everytime they drive it.

There is/was a guy in North Central PA that would build mini Big Rigs from old trucks - Some looked very realistic - I didn't want to know what was under the skin
