For sale: 1965 Dodge concept

Fancy bidding on a piece of automotive history? Now's your chance...

Dodge Diora concept

Have you ever wanted to own a car that looks like a newt?
 
Then get yourself to the RM Icons of Speed and Style auction in California on September 26. Once you’re there, wave your arms around or scratch your nose and make a bid on this 1965 Dodge Deora concept.
 
Built for the Detroit Autorama back in the ’60s, by some hot-roddy types called Mike and Larry Alexander, the Deora later became one of the original Hot Wheels toy cars.
 
The more astute among you may have noticed the lack of doors. But instead of slithering in through the side windows, the front of the cab opens like a venus flytrap – allowing the driver to bundle in arse-first.
 
The auctioneers reckon it will fetch up to $550,000 at the auction. And if you make the winning bid, let us know. We’d love to have a go.

Now share it...
