What will happen if you marry a GMC Sierra 2500 HD pickup to an old Cessna 421B twin prop aircraft? You’ll probably end up driving something quite special and rare. Don’t have the time to build it on your own? There’s already one for sale at a very reasonable price.
The car you see at the top and in the attached gallery below is a U.S. market street-legal vehicle with all the bits the law requires - headlights, tail lights, turn signals, brake lights, side view mirrors, etc. Its front end comes from a Sierra 2500 HD truck and its rear is basically the tail of a Cessna aircraft. Aside from a few weird lines here and there, it looks (almost) natural.
The seller calls the vehicle Planecar and there’s one super cool feature that actually defines it as such. There’s a propeller sitting on ball bearings in the front that spins freely as the car drives forward. That’s probably going to a be a small disadvantage at higher speeds but, hey – who’s going to drive that thing faster than, say, 40 mph?
