This Bizarre, ‘Two-Faced’ Chevrolet Silverado Is Perfectly Road Legal2
We don’t know firsthand, but we imagine it would be rather jarring to come face-to-face with the front-end of another vehicle in your own lane while driving down the road. There might even be a moment of panic as your brain, confused by the images it’s being shown, jumps hastily to the conclusion that you’re speeding straight toward a vehicle that must be barreling straight toward you.
Perhaps that’s how a lot of road users feel when they come across this “two-faced” Chevrolet Silverado, which – in true CatDog fashion – is made up of two outward-facing truck cabs pointed in opposite directions. The singularly odd truck was built for promotional purposes by an Arizona GMC/Chevrolet dealership back in the day, according to its current owner, Eric. He scooped it up years ago when he was looking for some way to promote his business, and he says it’s the most fun vehicle he’s ever driven.
“I drive this and I get my picture taken every two minutes. It’s pretty cool,” he told Cars Insider.
Despite the truck’s visual symmetry, only one of its cockpits has functional driver controls, and there’s a single engine and drivetrain to power the “rear” wheels. Under the “hood” of the non-functional cabin is what Eric calls the “world’s biggest trunk,” and the truck’s current license plate reads “WHT THE,” after what most motorists likely utter to themselves upon first seeing it on the road.
No doubt some will bemoan what could be considered a vulgar misuse of two perfectly good vintage Chevrolet Silverado pickup trucks, but at the least, the build is nothing if not original.
