This is one cranky eBayer! The item description reads like a manifesto about the seller's annoyances with eBay's communication tools for prospective buyers and sellers. The multicolor text is a particularly nice touch, too; reminds us of "Web 0.5," back in the '90s. We do like how the unvarnished truth makes its way through, though. The message is simple, and the call to action is even better: "Buy it anyway, it does not run but the parts are all there." Excellent. Can't argue with success, though -- the feedback is largely positive.

As for what it is -- we haven't the foggiest. We almost detect a bit of '70s VW Type 2 in the corner lamps, but the rest of what's there doesn't square with that. Even if they are Type 2 lamps, that's not surprising considering the ubiquity of those vehicles and their parts back then. It looks more like some sort of industrial flatbed, for use on the grounds of a large facility. Check out the rims, they're what, 13-inches at best, and probably more like 10s? We're sure one of you sharp-eyed readers will be able to decipher that insignia that looks like a flying A and tell us just what we have here.

Thanks for the tip, GD!

      I was in my home town of Vernon Texas last week and saw 5 of these trucks on a car lot for sale. I was drawn to them like chickens to a june bug. 4 were Suzuki and 1 honda. All were 4wd and sold for about 5k each.

      These trucks are not street legal in the US, but are legal and common in other parts of the world. Lots of Japanese manufacturers have made them, I recall seeing Suzuki and Honda ones while living in England and Germany, where they are street legal. At least before you chop the roof of the cab off! They usually have a 1.0 to 1.3 liter engine and cruise at 40-50 mph. Wouldn't it be fun here!

      Probably an airport vehicle.

      Looks like the Peugeot logo to me, after that, I have no further ideas!

      I have seen something similier to it at Macdill Afb, I believe the engine is under the seat.

      It's a cheap Asian utility vehicle with the cab hacked. Looks like about a 68 ford in the back of the t-bird Both are more interesting then the "whatever it used to be".

      It's some kind of small utility vehicle meant to be used on private property--golf courses, airports, etc.. Probably not street legal.

      It's a more fuel efficient SUV that conforms to the tougher MPG government mandate

      P.S. Let's all ask him stupid questions!

      The 'T-Bird' in the background is more interesting.

      What is parked on the other side of that T-Bird, is it a Ford Fairlane or a Mopar?... I can't tell.

      This mini-truck and the others you are lusting after are bloated gas guzzlers. I want something with three wheels and a two-stoke. The "fashionable" fourth wheel and unnecessary cylinders just add to the complexity. Give me something that you steer with handlebars and can carry 500lbs of hay/watermelons/grandparents.
