Why Would Someone Turn This 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado Into This?

Because why the hell not.

The Oldsmobile Toronado is one of the most beloved classic cars of the 1960s. It was unique and had a commanding presence. This was back when Oldsmobile itself actually had character before GM’s badge engineering scheme took full effect that led to the eventual demise of Olds and Pontiac. If you watch the classic car market you’ll notice that Toronados, especially ones in good condition, are increasing in value. So would it make any sense to rip one in half and turn it into this...car hauler?

We’re not so sure but the result is definitely interesting. Supposedly this 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado car hauler was put up for sale back in 2011. It still had its original 425 V8 paired to an automatic transmission along with factory options like A/C, power steering, power brakes, an AM/FM radio, and a tilt and telescopic steering column. The conversion was reportedly done back in the ’70s. This thing can also supposedly drive down the highway at 70 mph even while hauling a mid-size car. So is this Toronado hauler cool, or a complete and total waste of a gorgeous classic?
