    It’s funny to see that it’s not just a recent trend to put largely useless steering wheels in concept cars.

    …wheres the doors?

  10. talvesh Says:

    By the looks of it, I’d say the whole front / top opens up to allow access. Look at the split in the 2nd to last picture.

    Am I the only one here that had a Deora? Geez, when were you guys born? Deora was one of the most famous designs to come out of the Hot Wheels garage back in the 60’s. Between that and the Twin-Mill there was heaps of excellent designs by Hot Wheels that made it into the considerations of car companies at the time.

    tl:dr, it’s actually a hot wheels car, look it up on google.

    I actually built a 1/25th scale model of the Deora…I think it was made by AMT, which was the big model car company back in the ’60’s.

    Its like a el camino and a van got together and F***ed and out popped this thing.

    I’d drive it.

  16. spuffler Says:

    djeek: penetration would be a bit lower than most folks wouldsuspect: 1965 had ZERO unibody desgns. This would have a ‘C’ raIl frame under it.

    motown missile: I still see AMT, Revell, MPC and others are being sold online…. Tower Hobbies!

    This brought back memories. I had a purple Hot Wheels when I was a kid.

  19. Shane E. Vadnais Says:

    I’ve seen this vehicle before, if I recall the front windshield opens upward and the lower front section (grill) opens outward. Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that the exhaust vents on the sides are Mustang tail light bezels turned sideways?

  20. Extended Vehicle Warranty Says:

    interiors look like a luxury 1960 bathroom and being able to get into that thing only through the windshield you would be sure to hit youtube everytime you go out with it

    if would look more natural driving it backwards
    it’s a utopic passive safety masterpiece

    that said I somehow like it

  21. bryan Says:

    first off, it’s awesome.

    sencondly, is that an oldsmobile rocket on the steering wheel and why?

  22. Joseph Smith Says:

    Which direction is it traveling?

  23. slim jim Says:

    HOLY SHIT, it’s like looking into the future!!!!

    Dodge Camino

    looks better backwards

  26. Hotwheelsbob2000 Says:

    Deora was designed by Harry Bradly for Dodge to help promote their Dodge A-100 pick-up which the Deora was built from. The Alexander Brothers built the truck. It has a number of Ford parts in it including the Mustang Taillite Bezels used as exhaust outlets as Shane mentioned. The windshield and surround is the back window from a 1960 Ford Wagon. The back window of the Deora is the roof and back window of a 1963 Ford.
    Spuffler, the Dodge A-100 is a semi uni-body with a boxed sheet metal frame work welded to the floor of the van.
    The bed is mainly useless because the radiator and fan are mounted in the bed because there is no room in the front.
    The taillite is hidden behind the wood grain panel and shine downward onto the reflective panel below.
    A contest was sponsered by Dodge and Hot Rod magazine to name the truck when it was still just Bradleys sketches.
    Bradley went to workfor Mattel in 1966 to design cars for the new Hot Wheels line. He decided to include the Deora as one of the first 16 cars. The real Deora was built before Hotwheels came out. Surfboards were added by edict of Elliot Handler for play value over Bradly’s protests.
    The AMT model deoras have shown up a number of times in the past 45 with at least 4 different building versions. I have one of each.

    cool… ugliest thing i’ve ever seen in my life.

  28. Dick Dangles Says:

    That car is simply Awesome

  29. Kevin Says:

    This think is so cool… It was pretty awesome when Foose worked with Hot Wheels on the Deora II

  30. Meade Says:

    I had a Hot Wheels car,and a model kit of this when I was about 10 years old.Still a very cool and classic automotive design.

  31. NorseForce Says:

    This “truck” is retarded and exactly backwards. Is it mid-engine? The whole point of a truck is so you can put things in the bed, referring to the earlier post by hotwheelsbob2000. So lets get things straight, dodge set out to make a backwards truck that is 1 ugly, 2 hard to actually get into, and 3 you cant even use the bed to move things? What is more pointless, this or the stupid tomahawk motorcycle with the viper engine? Mopar you rock but sometimes….. jesus.

  32. AirirelKayz Says:

    thats cool… but not so cool..

  33. muyon Says:

  34. Gary Says:

    I’ll drive it…

    Very nice, steering wheel would be a bit awkward though

  37. kaustubh Says:

    hey its looks cool but not safe bec in front there is only on layer of steel and glass need saft first.

  38. Vinod Says:

    For me its looks like a boat with wheels !

  39. Harvey Winn Says:

    Hotwheelsbob has it alll correct. I worked in the Dodge studio after the A brothers built this as a show car. I worked with them on the original Dodge Super Bee show car which I named in a studio contest. They were REAL craftsmen. Mike worked for ASC for a while. Don’t know what happened to Larry.

  40. Rob Says:

    Very cool I had the Hot Wheel back then It was gold color and had two little surf boards on the back.

  41. Bruce Risher Says:

    For years there used to be a white one sitting on a lot on Foothill (I think) Boulevard (may have been Walnut) in Pasadena. This would have been 1970s. I wonder if this is the same one? I was told there had only been two of them made. Don’t know if that’s true or not.

  42. American Lawn Says:

    Wow, what crazy mind thought this thing up, I wouldn’t be able to help myself than to show it off as my work pickup!

  43. Factory of Cars Says:

    Looks ugly at first glance, but I can’t stop looking at it… that must be a good sign :)

  44. AutoTulsaBlog Says:
