I believe the correct term for the "hunting car" is shooting brake.

Here's another one but for some reason it doesn't look all that bad. It is a one of a kind.

Go to eBay to see the inside of the camper.

I must admit, that van/truck is definitely an oddball, but cool nonetheless!

It's lots of fun until you see the great big head light in the tunnel.

Neither one sold. Top bid for the Ford COE on a Chevy was $11,000 and the camper top bid was $3,150.

I searched but could find no information on a 1951 Econoline, sooooo, must be a '61 (first year of production)? Nope. '61's didn't have side marker lights. It's all '85 Econoline except for the cab and clip.

1931 Packard, but the pic was taken in...at least 1948, because the hubcaps were used on 1948/50 Packard's, except Custom 8's.

Apparently some clarification is in order here. I was joking when I said it was a 1951 Econoline.
