Maybe, if the pope lived in a van down by the river.

Ha, I think I'm gonna have to pass on that fugly thing. Looks like an E150 too, and looks like they stacked a minivan on top of a van. On the other hand, it has as many TVs as a sports bar inside........................

Re: The MOTHER of all high roofs......

Fugly yes...but pretty interesting. Based on the fit and finish of the interior trim, this top looks made for an econoline.....

check out the interior trim panels of the top:

It must have been custom-made (obviously) for a sight-seeing company or something, maybe photo safaris, tours of the star's houses...?

For posterity.



P.S. I've seen this one before somewhere, maybe for sale a year or two ago?

Re: The MOTHER of all high roofs......

its definitely the top half of another vehicle, but i cant locate which one. its really close to a 99 plymouth voyager, but not quite.

pix make it appear to be a nice looking conversion. who knows up close though.

strange indeed, especially those trim panels boywonder pointed out.

Re: The MOTHER of all high roofs......

It does look like a voyager top or similar.........you can see where the rear-view mirrors used to be.
