V8 3.6 litros
Body: 60 Nash Rambler
Motor: Ferrari 360
The Ferrambo may not be the greatest name ever, but it serves up a stout 280 points on the Jalopnik scale, and for good reason. How many other tiny, bright red, two door station wagons with a mid-mounted 3.6 L V8 mill out of a Ferrari 360 Modena have you seen lately? Of Course it’s stupidly well built, but the details are really what puts this car over the top.
The builders at Divers Street Rods went so far as to swipe the Ferrari text and use it to call out the car’s name everywhere it was tastefully necessary. Under hood there is custom fitted leather luggage instead of the original wimpy inline 6. The the seats are custom covered buckets and the rear seats… there are no rear seats, only engine.
Here’s something really cool, the rear windows rotate about 5 degrees open with the turn of the ignition to provide a little venting for that beastly engine. Yes indeed, Troy Trepanier may have had a cool car with last years winner, First Love, but this year’s winner is a hell of a lot more Jalopnik in our book. Divers Street Rods.
