Lockheed Lakester Custom Roadster

This cool custom vehicle was inspired by vintage salt flat racers, with a healthy dose of retro aviation style. If its pointy chrome body looks familiar, that’s because it was made from the aluminum wing tip fuel tank of a 1950s Lockheed Super Constellation airplane.

Built by Iowa’s Eddie’s Rod & Custom, this street-legal vehicle is powered by a 200hp turbocharged 1980 Toyota 3TC HEMI 4-cylinder engine, mated with a 5-speed manual transmission. Its interior features tandem gunner seats from a Lockheed Neptune, and its steering wheel came from a 1948 Rockwell Aero Commander.

If you’re interested in owning this truly unique vehicle, it’s going up for auction at Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale event, taking place from January 12-19, 2014.
