lost & forgotten Ben-Dera Ford concept

June of 1998, “Car and Driver” actually featured this vehicle and it’s owner / builder.  His name is John Bender and he built this vehicle because well….. he wanted to.  In fact, he built a couple of them!  I would go into details, but honestly, this article sums it up way better than we ever could.

    I live in Columbus Ohio! I wish I could see this car up close, but I think he died a while ago. Sadly I do remember seeing an ad for his car in the dispatch a long time ago. We need more people like him.

  2. Frankly, this is the oddest Ford I’ve ever seen… was it ever produced?

    Obviously, it shows some retrofuturism reminiscences… what influenced it?

    Recall a still oddest yet still oddest one: the Ford Atom… have you ever seen it?

    Dear friendes, I hope to get more entries to the Ben-Dera and othe Fords… thank you.
