Auto Shop Worker Builds A Road Legal, Drivable Upside Down Pickup Truck


Whoa! A man has built an incredible upside down truck that looks like a flipped-over vehicle.

Rick Sullivan is a collision center and auto body shop owner in Clinton, Illinois. He got the strange idea to build his upside down truck when he was called to tow a flipped over Ford F-150. With help from a couple of co-workers, he spent six months and $6,000 building the topsy-turvy truck from the parts of two separate vehicles.The road-legal car is created from a 1991 Ford Ranger pickup truck with a 1995 F-150 pickup truck body placed over the top – upside down.


“I built the truck by starting out collecting parts for a Ford F150, we bought different parts in different locations,” Rick said. “Then on the drive train it is a 1991 Ford Ranger that I bought complete. We tore the body off of it and transformed the F150 upside down on to the Ford Ranger.There’s no blueprint. I just started buying parts and then putting it together. It’s all in my head and we had to make adjustments throughout, but it turned out pretty much like I envisioned it.”


With help from a couple of co-workers, this amazing vehicle only took 6 months to build. The wheels on the top actually spin with the aid of electric motors, and it’s street legal. It even has an interesting vanity plate… Rick Sullivan’s novelty license plate reads, “FLIPOVR.” Good thing that one was available, since “WTF TRUCK” is probably too long.

Not surprisingly, the truck is big head-turner wherever he goes, with people shocked to see what appears to be a flipped over truck driving down the street. “People are amazed,” he said. “It’s one of those things when you first see it, it’s hard to recognize what it is but when you take the second look then they want to pull me over and take a closer look at it.”

If you’re wondering about the furry passenger, that’s Murray! Now, watch the video of the overturned truck below.
