Covered Wagon

This isn't a skoolie but I figured you would all appreciate it. My brother-in-law made this covered wagon using a 1969 suburban chassis about 5 years ago. We had it out this weekend so I figured I would snap a few pics and share.

Re: Covered Wagon

I've heard of rolling back the odometer to improve value but he may have rolled it too far back.

Re: Covered Wagon

VERRRY nice looking, BUT -

Is that a fuel tank in front of everything? Brake failure when riding a wooden cart behind a bottle of accelerant would probably be exciting.
