On Instagram we see the lifestyle of van lifers to be all glamorous and perfect. Unfortunately, that's not the case.

This nice five window microcar is a one-off custom-built coupe created by George S. Brauks, a St. Louis, Missouri foundry pattern maker and carriage builder. The front of the car is a 1937 Hudson Terraplane 2 door coupe. The rear part seems to be a 1936 DeSoto. The entire car was narrowed lengthwise on the centerline to create a narrow body width. The picture is slightly photoshopped; the rusty spots are repainted.
