Oddities, Eccentricities, and Aberrations – December 2017 Edition

Hey! It’s been awhile since we dug up some of the weirdest, most interesting cars for sale on the internet but today we found some good ones, starting with a grill only a mother could love. Get a load of this 1972 Citroen HY converted into an RV! What is it? Why would someone build this? None of those questions matter. The only question you should be asking is how can you afford NOT to buy this for just $30,000. That’s way cheaper than anything else you can live in, including a house. Anyone can go buy a Westfalia and be a hippy but can YOU can be a hippy with a certain je ne sais quoi. Qu’est-ce qui se passe? C’est très gentil.

If you’ve got gasoline in your veins (Morrie’s Heritage Car Connection does not recommend or condone injecting gasoline intravenously), then this car ought to get your blood pumping a little faster. While this isn’t a legit Audi Sport Quattro S1, it’s awfully close and with at least 700 hp on tap, it’s probably every bit as exciting to drive as the real deal for a fraction of the cost. OK, so $300k isn’t exactly cheap, but who can put a price on something this awesome? I mean, that’s like paying $37,500 per headlight and a crazy rally car thrown in for free! According to the ad, you can even crank up the boost to generate 1,000+ hp if you really wanted to end up in the hospital (or morgue) in a hurry.

If it’s good enough for Robocop, it’s good enough for us. Check out this fully-armored Terradyne Ghurka. Don’t worry, we’ve never heard of it either, but apparently, the Ford F550-based beast can withstand .50-cal artillery being shot at it. That means it’d probably do just fine during a zombie apocalypse, alien encounter, violent uprising, or catastrophic natural disaster, not that we’d want to find out for ourselves. If feeling safe on your daily commute is with $700k to you, you might as well take a look at this thing.

This 1960 Morris Minor Traveler body plopped onto a 1987 Suzuki Samari drivetrain is just about the coolest offroader we could imagine. Although it looks like a monster truck in photos, we’d bet it’s surprisingly small in person given the two pint-size 2-doors that came together as one in this case. It’s all powered by a 4.3L Chevy V6 too, which means keeping it running should be relatively straightforward as well. It looks like a great way to make friends at the local Cars & Coffee or on the trail.

Lastly, it’s definitely worth checking out this drop-dead gorgeous 1960 Jensen 541R. They were only built for 3 years, which is a shame because the look (we see a mix of 300SL and Ferrari 166MM) is timeless. We don’t know much more about them but feel free to check this one out on eBay if you think you’re cool enough to drive it.
