No company currently offers a compact pickup truck for sale in North America, and while Ford and Hyundai both have plans to introduce smaller trucks that will undercut today’s admittedly large mid-size pickups, there’s no denying that small pickups have been a neglected segment in the United States and Canada in recent years.
While the compact pickup will eventually make its return, we’re not sure if any automaker would be interested in making a truck as small as this custom-built 1993 Geo Metro “Truccar.” This little pickup started out life as a regular first-generation Geo Metro hatchback, but at some point was converted into a dual-rear-wheel pickup. As strange of an idea as this is, it’s actually fairly well executed and the attention to detail is also quite good. It even features custom side steps, a tow hitch and a sun visor!
It’s safe to say the Truccar isn’t capable of hauling or towing very much, however, and we probably wouldn’t load it up with much more than a small load of dirt. There’s no tailgate, either, so anything stored in the bed would be a bit difficult to get out.
This is no Chevrolet Silverado or GMC Sierra, but there are a few upsides here. The seller says this tiny lime green pickup has a three-speed automatic transmission with “zero issues,” and with just 63,000 miles on the odometer, the 1.0L three-cylinder engine should have plenty of life left in it. The buyer will have to replace the rear tires, though, as they are “bald and have a very slow leak.”
Those who think they need a 1993 Geo Metro pickup truck with a dual rear wheels in their lives can check out the Facebook marketplace listing at this link. Interested parties should also be prepared to fork over $2,500 for the privilege of owning it – though the owner says they’ll also consider trades.
