aerohead always talks about Paris dressmakers. It turns out that in Paris they had perfume delivery cars. Where the 1930s Canadian beer and furniture trucks were Art Deco streamlined, this is more like an electric retro-future Ed Roth creation.

Now this is "class". Ed Roth is a good comparison for it.

I don't know why, but it reminds me of some Pakistani heavily-decorated trucks.

Now this one reminds me some hearses I saw at a museum, which unfortunately was closed and its collection auctioned.

I actually had this in the draft of that post, but I deleted it because no fenders or paint and it was by Ray Fahrner instead of Ed Roth.

A variety of concepts, one-offs, and outrageous customs was capped by the presence of customizer Gene Winfield standing by the 1964 Reactor Custom Coupe he built for an Autorama show, later featured on the Batman, Bewitched, and original Star Trek television shows.
Corvair engine, Citroen front wheel drive. Winfield is a legend.
