'53 Ford Panel Truck

My newest creation was built on the notion that just because someone is in a wheelchair, doesn’t mean they can’t have the coolest, most badass ride on the block!This handi-capable ’53 Ford Panel Truck features two wheelchair accessible ports of entry so that our friend doesn’t necessarily need handicapped parking spaces to get around. The side board on the driver’s side pulls out and down to become a ramp while another ramp slides out the back. Both neatly hide away when not in use. Blue flames and exposed engine adds that extra touch of awesomeness to this ride built for the Nifty Fifties, Daddy-O challenge over at LUGNuts.

    Raphael Granas He is "suffering" from an excess of coolness and an acute case of awesome.

    Love the adapted car, Lino. I don't think I've seen anybody attempt one before.

    Thanks guys! Glad you like this one. To answer the question here, I imagine the guy to be a hot roddin' legend and...well...some bout with misfortune landed him in a wheelchair. Or maybe he was just born that way. Either or...this thing is one badass ride proving that, with some imagination and ingenuity, wheelchair accessibility doesn't have to be limited to the city bus.
