    Craigslist find of the day: Lands Precedent, um, minivan? wagon?

    The motorized monstrosity you see before you is a very rare 1986 Lands Motor Company Precedent. Only two were ever known to have been built, at a cost of more than $1 million, which 20 years ago was real money.

    The Precedent might be considered an early hybrid, mating a Ford 5.0L engine to a Corvette rear end enclosed in a fiberglass body with Citroen doors. Inside, there's leather seating for six and, 20 years before Chrysler thought of it, rear seats that swivel! The interior is paneled in real rosewood, which, combined with the electric liquor-dispenser and minibar, makes the Precedent more of a tall, ungainly limousine than a tall, ungainly minivan. Back seat entertainment is provided by the period-correct, possibly black and white 8" television.

    A Google search turns up very little information about either the Precedent or the company that built it, but some lucky Precedent collector (of which we're guessing there could be fewer than two) could take this beauty (a relative term) home for only $35,000! That's a $465,000 discount not even factoring in inflation.

    Fully street legal and can be easily insured. Only two were ever built, this one being the only production model in existence. The first one was a only a prototype and did not have the level of refinement as this one. Engineered by Dick Gulfstrand at a cost of over $1 Million and designed by Alain Clenet, the Precedent was built in Elkhart, Indiana by the Lands Motor Company. Featured in the March 1986 issue of SuperAuto Illustrated. Powered by a fuel injected Ford 5.0L drivetrain coupled with a Corvette rear end. Fiberglass body with steel doors supplied by Citroen. Odometer reads 1900 original miles and is believed to be accurate, but title is stamped exempt due to age. Completely original in every way, including the original tires. Has many innovative features such as a wetbar with an electric liquor dispenser, a television, six highback leather bucket seats, real Rosewood interior and wheels designed by Pirelli.
