Always wanted a luxury car designed to go on safaris? If so, then look no further than the Mohs SafariKar. This example from 1973 is one of just three prototype hunting vehicles designed by inventor and entrepreneur Bruce Baldwin Mohs and manufactured by Mohs Seaplane Corporation of Madison, Wisconsin. It was originally acquired from a Georgia parking lot in 2009 by its current owner, who spent 4-years refurbishing it. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.
The Mohs SafariKar was marketed as a luxury- and safety-oriented vehicle for hunting big game in Africa and only three examples were made due to the complexity of EPA requirements. It’s powered by a 392ci International Harvester V8 fed by a four-barrel Holley carburetor, mated to a column-shifted three-speed automatic transmission. Step inside, and the front features three individual Solar Automotive Products Baja Bucket seats, which feature Mohs’ patented “swing and sway” technology allowing them to pivot and compensate for centrifugal force. Other features include AM/FM / CB radios, an air conditioning system, and a red steering wheel with a Mohs horn button. More information here.
