At the same time, the seller will not mind if the buyer offers more for the car. According to him, this is “art”, which is known to be priceless.

The 1984 Ford LTD station wagon was turned into a real art object back in September 1996 by the late Tanzanian artist George Lilanga. He painted the car by hand in exchange for a free overnight stay in a German hotel for a few nights. The result is a unique car – the only one with the artist’s signature.

It is this Ford that is now spilled for 1,999,999 euros or 2,360,750 dollars. The artist’s canvas was a snow-white car body: he applied an abstract colorful drawing on it. And on both sides of the hood, the talented craftsman left his autograph. The mileage of a car that has never been involved in an accident is about 144 thousand kilometers.

The station wagon is equipped with a 120-horsepower 3.8-liter V6 petrol engine, combined with an automatic transmission. For some, this old Ford car, albeit with unique graphics, may seem insignificant and not worth the money.

But collectors should appreciate this station wagon.

Earlier it became known that the American company Ford received a patent in the name for its new SUV. Everyone agrees that the new name will be used for an extreme version of the revived Bronco.
