Chevrolet Tritation

I first saw a picture of this car on Dep-O’s facebook page a few weeks ago and just needed to know more. Well it was up for sale a few years back and was described as a one off build. And what a one off build, the base car was a 1980 Chevy Citation, but this wasn’t a simple cut the front down and remove a wheel affair.
No the front of the car as you see it is in fact the rear of the donor car, yes that makes this rear engined. Now you can’t just drive round in reverse all the time, so the engine has been turned 90 degrees with no doubt copious amounts of head scratching and tea. The front end in virtually all newly built with that single central seat and wheel. The body is now mostly fibreglass to boot. The advert stated that 43000 hours had been spent creating this car and that it was now time to let someone else enjoy it. It may not be to everyone’s liking but there’s no denying the work and skill needed to undertake this transformation but the question has to be why????
