Here’s a Ford Focus Converted into a Weird Pickup

Here’s something you don’t see every day — or ever. This is a Ford Focus that appears to have started life as a regular Ford Focus sedan, before eventually being converted into a pickup truck. It looks like it may have even been a rental car, as it has the "rental car barcode" in the window. I bet nobody who rented this thing to go to Disneyland ever thought it’d turn into a curiosity.

But, indeed, it is a curiosity. It’s a white Focus sedan and yes, it has a pickup truck bed — something that was crudely assembled in back. Even more crudely done is the fuel door, which has no semblance of style at all — instead, it’s just a big square cut out of the poorly made bodywork. Fortunately, it has a key lock.

Beyond the appearance of the car, the construction is also very suspect: The sides coming down from the window appear to be made of wood, which isn’t the best material for automotive construction, and the window itself seems to be some sort of plastic piece possibly found in a dumpster. The whole thing is ridiculous.

But, then, it’s ridiculous in a good way. I love seeing stuff like this, and I always wonder what went through the car owner’s mind. Was it really cheaper and easier to take a Ford Focus and convert it into a pickup, rather than simply sell the Ford Focus and buy a used pickup? Is the pickup actually used? Is it functional? Does it carry stuff? And is it really better than a trunk? Or, maybe a better question, is it really better than a Focus hatchback?

We’ll never know the answer, but I’m glad sightings like this exist to make us wonder.
