Amish Car? Trainmobile?

This horrendous creation was built in 1986 by Marvin Arvin (perhaps all the teasing for his rhyming name is to blame), a retired Christian minister in Indiana, on a 283 V8 (requiring leaded fuel) and 350 automatic driveline out of a ’66 Chevy station wagon. The metal bodywork was all done by Marvin, and the car is registered as a homebuilt and fully street legal. Apparently it’s been proudly driven in a number of Loogootee parades, and it’s currently up on eBay (110274122223). Surprisingly, a small bidding war is going on, although it has not yet hit reserve, so it must have some appeal.
