A fresh coat of black paint and a couple of streaks of red—yep, we think we may have just found something to replace the A-Team’s GMC Vandura. We pity the fool that begs to disagree.
What is this exactly? Well, if it isn’t obvious already, it’s a badass van that looks like a 6x6 Ford F-150 Raptor concealed in the body of a third-generation E-Series van. But what is it really? Actually, this Frankenstein’s monster is the other way around: It’s a Ford Econoline modified to look like a Raptor that’s been equipped with an extra row of wheels.
End result? Its creators, some geniuses at a Russia-based garage called Ford-Market, have dubbed this beast the ‘Raptor Bus.’ Fitting.
Ford-Market says the Raptor Bus still comes equipped with an original Ford Econoline 5.8-liter V8 engine, and while no further details have been given, we think it’s safe to assume that mill is the only thing that’s been left stock. Below you’ll find an image of the E-Series before the transformation. Look:
This thing is completely bonkers. So, once and for all, this is an E-Series that’s been modified to look like a 6x6 Ford F-150 Raptor with an E-Series’ body. Don’t worry, we’re just as lost as you are. You can check out the full documentation of this build on Instagram with the hashtag #raptorbus. What’s the craziest transformation you’ve ever seen a vehicle undergo?
