H/T: Car Scoops
What you’re looking at is the world’s first and only 1989 Ferrari 412 turned El Camino-style pickup. This conversion was shown on the History Channel’s ‘Ultimate Wheels’ show (Season 1, Episode 1) and basically consisted of replacing the rear seats with an wood-clad open bed. A parcel shelf was also added behind the seats, but unfortunately, they had to remove the original 4.9L V12 engine and replace it with a 5.7L small-block Chevy V8, paired with an original GM 3-sped automatic transmission.

Inside, one of the only modifications you’ll find up front is a CD player and four-spoke steering wheel, with a respectable 38,207-miles on the odometer. Interested? This vehicle is headed to Bonhams MPH March Auction where it’s expected to sell for between $20,500 – $27,300 USD. More information here.

A real Jekyll and Hyde conversion, the Ferrari is adorned with a shotgun scoop bonnet and bespoke exhaust system resulting in a dual-personality of high performance hot-rod and practical workhorse. The shotgun scoop moves up and down and the unique exhaust has a valve system whereby the driver can decide at the flick of a switch whether to have the exhaust growl fiercely or produce a more refined sound for London’s leafier avenues,” said the London Motor Group.
