Ebay tat

Recommended Posts

The Dodge is almost certainly an ex-comms vehicle for escorting nuclear convoys from Aldermaston. In its working days it would have had blue beacons on the roof and a pair of (very expensive) telescopic radio masts either side of the back doors operated by air from a compressor in the back. A friend bought one which he converted to a camper-cum-workshop for when he was away doing motorsport. When he got it there was a choice of two, and I suspect this is the other one.One cool thing about it was that the generator in the side ran almost silently - apart from in the dead of night, the only way you could tell it was running was if you noticed the heat of its exhaust wafting from under the van. Spooky.

Noticed the local taxi firm is starting to scrap a few of them, not sure what they're moving onto as a cheap, mid-size Fiat replacement.

Stilos? There's a few of those doing the rounds as minicabs in Norwich.

See to me this is an absolutely stupendous spot as somehow I've never actually seen one in the flesh. Infact before joining Autoshite I'd never even heard of a Cordia, or a Tredia! :oops:

 

So to me it's an epic eBay find & I thought it would have grabbed more attention from everyone as it's so wonderfully obscure. Not that I particularly like it as a car though.
