Renamed Ford Explorer to go on sale

The Mecum auction on January 13 next year will put up the Ford Explorer XLT, which has been revised and renamed.

It is worth saying that its current owner David Mosley was engaged in the modernization of the car. According to him, he was glad that he was able to buy a car with almost the entire factory paint, since there were only three copies of the 1994 Explorer XLT in Metallic Pea green – we are talking about the body color that makes it look like a FAMILY Truckster station wagon. “Wagon Queen” from the movie “Vacation”.

Thus, the words Truckster are taken from the motion picture, and the Cherokee, since Mosley is the owner of a car dealership called the Cherokee Auto Group. This is how the name Cherokee Truckster came about, with its logo emblazoned on the front bumper.

Mosley noted that he bought the Explorer model, which already had some custom touches like the radar, fiberglass footrests, chrome moldings. In turn, he added wood trim to the car to make it even more reminiscent of the Griswold Family Truckster.

The Cherokee Truckster is powered by a 4.0-liter V6 engine that works in conjunction with an automatic transmission. Although the characteristics of the motor were not disclosed, it can be assumed that it remained unchanged, given only the modernization of the exterior. Speaking about the estimated cost of the upcoming lot in the person of the “Truckster” based on the Ford model, it is still kept secret.

In addition, it was recently noted that a very rare Mauck MSV 1120s camper was put up for sale. It should be emphasized that the cost of this car is $ 27,000, although it could be bought new for about $ 200,000.
