While this looks like a homemade Ford Ranchero or Chevrolet El Camino inspired light-duty pickup, it’s likely a coachbuilt Lincoln Continental service vehicle designed to haul flowers around cemeteries. Like the flower car's more important big brother, the hearse, flower cars usually start life as a more upscale vehicle before being sliced and diced and turned into a truck.

This particular flower car was shared by Redditor wandering_sailor and shows someone is using a flower car as more of a luxury light-duty pickup.

Of course, there’s the small chance this person works for a funeral home or cemetery and simply turned the outdated flower car into an errand runner for the grounds. Regardless, this is definitely something to think about before buying your next used pickup.
