Fastback Focus pickup?

I found this buried on reddit:

The bodywork looks good, but the tailgate and inside are plywood. The tailgate says Focus.

What is this? A backup light with brown caulking? What does the writing say?

This only came up once on Tineye:

Google translate delivered far better with the first sentence than the second:

each of us saw this car hundreds of times on the streets. Malo whom, however, they manage to get to know them after this strange conversion..
I just posted it back on imgur and we will see if anyone is helpful. That is not usually what happens on imgur\reddit, though.

Interesting, but what is really needed is to extend the bed into the rear seats, and have a roll-down door to cover it.

And what's the big hatch on the side for, I wonder?

I think a long bed would be better--superior taper.

Is there a hatch on each side?

Easiest aerocap ever!

Interesting to say the least, but not so attractive-looking at all.

Give it a Plexiglas cover and it would be significantly more Aerocivic.

The original poster says he saw the car in Mountain View, California.

This just went up on Just a Car Guy:

Much better access to and use of space—and it's even rear-wheel drive.

I seriously considered doing this with my intrepid. Remove the rear glass, seats and trunk. Install plexiglass behind front seats, a little sheetmetal/wood and done. Would make a very cheap light duty pickup.
