Over the past few years, we’ve witnessed the emergence of what the kids like to call “van life,” which has single-handedly made those types of vehicles cool again. Of course, most of these vans are being converted into campers or mobile living spaces, but we’re also starting to see gently-used, low-mile vans pop up for sale, as well as good old fashioned conversion vans. However, this 1993 Ford E-150 up for grabs at Cars & Bids right now is neither of those things, but rather, a faithful replica of the rig that starred in the comedy classic Dumb and Dumber, making it appealing to a whole different kind of customer.
Of course, we don’t need to tell fans of Dumb and Dumber where this 1993 Ford E-150 got its inspiration, because there’s no mistaking the “Mutt Cutts” replica hauler for anything else. Essentially, it’s been fitted with fully custom carpeted body panel add-ons to make it look like a giant rolling dog, complete with faithful signage. Heck, it even comes with custom window covers that makes it look like Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels – who play Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne in the movie – are actually inside the van.
That theme continues inside the cabin, where one will find even more movie-specific modifications such as fuzzy dashboard and steering wheel covers, a bird cage with a fake dead bird inside, ketchup and mustard squeeze bottles, a Lloyd key chain, and even a copy of the mini-bike that was used in the 1994 film, to boot.
Other than those obvious modifications, this 1993 Ford E-150 is essentially stock, equipped with cloth upholstery, second row captain’s chairs, third-row seating, a multi-function steering wheel, power windows and door locks, air conditioning, and a cassette player. It’s powered by the 4.9L I-6 engine that was originally rated to produce 145 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque, which is mated to an automatic transmission. It’s hard to say what someone is willing to pay for such a machine, but to us at least, there isn’t much else out there that’ll turn heads quite like this cool movie tribute.
