Welcome to Craigslist Crapshoot, our weekly search for the most bizarre, awesome, and/or terrible vehicles that the online classifieds has to offer.

Last week we went looking for the worst examples of makes and models that have gone away and then been revived, and enjoyed the freedom of a no-object spending limit. We’ll see the zombie horde in just a sec, but first this week’s quest! 
 
Volkswagen is into diesels again. Well, at least the ones they bought back and fixed. Once those are gone, you can bet there won’t be any more. Of course, if you really want to drive something that sound like it’s shaking marbles in coffee can then you’ll want to go Cummins. That’s what we want to find this week, anything with a Cummins diesel, and the weirder the better.
 
 As always, we want your finds to go down in infamy and not in the site’s spam filter. Since we’ve changed commenting systems, you may need to update your commenter account. Make sure you have a Disqus account – they’re free and easy to get – and then comment away.

Got that? Good, now let the revival meeting begin!

They say that should you fall off a horse you should just get right back on that slippery equine and hold on tighter. Sometimes however, it might be better to just let bygones be bygones. 

We’ll start off our most notable better-off-dead heads with finding us what was probably the worst-ever car to carry the Capri name, the FWD Mazda 323-based convertible (ad removed) that Ford of Australia foisted on an unwary car-buying populous. Perhaps more classy, but just as unnecessary was the fun-sized found for us by . Those were amazingly built around a Chevy Corvair drivetrain, powering the front wheels! It was pointed out by that, vampire-like, the was very hard to kill.

kept the retro revival going strong with a , while showed us the money with a Pontiac LeMans (listing expired) that may have originally been as Daewoo, but which most everyone of us Daewouldn’t.

The winner with the most votes was surprisingly the renaissance of car beloved here in the Western Hemisphere, but somewhat reviled in its homeland. That was the “New Beetle” which a lot of Germans equated with dredging up an unflattering past and hence shunned it. found us a .

Congrats to GTXcellent, and thank you all for bringing the bad back to life for us once again. Now, let’s Cummins ’cause it’s cold outside.

 

  • acarr260

    How about a 1990 Ford Bronco with a 4bt Cummins?

    Ad:

  • smalleyxb122

    How about a bus, converted into a food truck, made to look like a streetcar?

    • Wayne Moyer

      ..then turned into a mime’s home (we believe this to be true but the previous owner refuses to talk about this time in his life) before being transformed into a traveling flea circus. After being bug bombed (paperwork provided)it was put back into work as a metro bus for six months. After which it served in the Bosnian Army (citation needed but we have a grainy photo).
      $80,000 we know what we have.

      • Victor

        Ran good when we parked it.

        • ptschett

          Call eight6seven-five3oh9 ask for Jenny no txts no emails

  • P161911

    A giant military 6X6

  • P161911

    A Jeep TJ with a Cummins in Cumming, GA

    • Victor

      OMG- WTF !

    • outback_ute

      It had a 4″ lift before they put the Cummins in…

  • P161911

    A 1968 Autocar that is a TV star! With a Cummins 250


    • smalleyxb122

      And a seller unclear on what “all original” means.

      This is an ALL original truck. I added the box sleeper.

      • dead_elvis, inc.

        Yes, but Craigslist, so of course. (And even with the alt-all-original, that ad is still far better and more clearly written than average for CL.)

    • Wayne Moyer

      I call foul. It wasn’t THE Autocar.

  • P161911

    This one is different, a 1931 Hudson with a Cummins 4BT.

    • Wayne Moyer

      Dear God why?!

      • Victor

        People climb mountains,I wonder about them too.

    • Sjalabais

      That is the entire ad:

      “1931 hudson 4BT cummins diesel ps pb ac heat gps stereo 13000”

      So many questions! So little respect for what was at hand…car looks pretty solid to start with.

  • Jofes2

    Here’s a Terragator. According to Google Translate it’s used to spread seeds. Judging by the pictures in this ad, though, that’s just bad imagination. With three huge wheels, a funnel shaped bed and a giant arm, this could be anything an eleven-year-old wants it to. Even if the actual purpose was what the ad claims, surely it can do more than seeds.

    If you had a Terragator, what would you spread? I’m thinking glitter.

    • P161911

      If I had a Terragator, I would spread chaos.
      My 5 year old daughter would spread glitter.

      • Jofes2

        So we all have the same goal, the difference is that your daughter and I have a proper plan.

        • P161911

          My plan involves more explosives and sharp objects and less FABOULOUS-ness.

          • Jofes2

            That lack of fab will be your fall.

            It all sounds awfully gruesome. I just wanted to liven up some lawns and annoy cabriolet drivers. Where does that pent up rage come from?

            I will go down as a villain among the law-enforcers, but a hero among the children. Enjoy your 72 lasses, or whatever you were planning.

    • Batshitbox

      Rocket launcher, of course.

    • ptschett

      Spreading granular fertilizer without too much ground disturbance is the usual use for those, but seeds and glitter would work too I suppose.

  • Lokki

    Here is a very nice 1971 IH Scout with a 12 valve 5.9 Cummins. Sadly it’s not $25 as stated but $25K. That revelation changed my plans for the afternoon, but I still really like it. Yeah, there are some things I’d change- like the wheels- but overall, Hell Yeah!

    • Victor

      IH had good suspension,lift kit is foolish.

      • dead_elvis, inc.

        How about this one instead?

  • GTXcellent

    Well, I don’t think I’ll be able to win 3 weeks in a row. Way too many normal Cummins applications ’round these parts.
    I did find this sweet Cummins – I’ve never seen one before, and I bet not many here have either

  • Papa Van Twee


    Only because I’ll never get to say this again:

    The Olney, Indiana Calvary Baptist Church is Cummin’!

  • discontinuuity

    $30k is a lot to ask for this custom rock crawler, but at least you’ll never run out of torque.

  • jim

    1991 Corvette with twin Cummins engines, for sale in the UK :

  • tonyola

    You guys aren’t thinking big enough. Here’s a 1988 Grove AT420 All Terrain Crane.

    • P161911

      How’s this then, a 200 foot boom!

      • tonyola

        Bah!

        • Please Stand By

        • Please Stand By

          This thread escalated quickly…

    • ptschett

      I agree! Here’s a Case 821C.

  • P161911

    I’m not even sure what exactly this is, but it looks dangerous, has a Cummins, and cost $140k.

    • ptschett

      It’s a tree mulcher (and a rather vigorous one.)

      • Sjalabais

        Wow, this is violent.

      • P161911

        Now I want one, or at least should look into renting one. Might be handy to have on hand when my daughter starts dating in 10-12 years.

  • ptschett

    You don’t see three-axled Dodge Rams every day.

  • ptschett

    For a few years, Case IH made a ‘rigid frame’ 4WD based on the Steiger but with automotive-steer axles (like Case’s discontinued Traction King series) instead of center articulation. The 9240 was a rigid 9230 with an 8.3L CDC engine, and this 9260 was a rigid 9250 with a 10L Cummins.

    9250 for comparison:

  • AnamDuine

    A complete Cummins-powered logging operation for $169,500 asking price.






  • Maymar

    I don’t know how anyone in Ontario could think faux-rust patina is something worth being achieved instead of terrifying, but a stubby little old Cummins-powered International rat rod is cool otherwise.

    • Sjalabais

      That grille though…together with the lights, they somehow got the Trabant proportions into this very American vehicle.

  • dead_elvis, inc.

    150kw generator low hours cummins powered run a city 5 thousand dollars or

    Or what? (Get murdered, regardless, I think.)

    • outback_ute

      A few years back I saw a decent sized generator in a rooftop plant room of a shopping centre that had been decommissioned. It was still there because the centre had been extended and the crane cost to remove it was about 3x what the generator was worth!

  • Sjalabais

    Scandinavians prefer other diesel sources, but just for giggles, here’s what a 2016, still new RAM 3500 with a 6.7l Cummins will set you back with Norwegian taxes: 165500$.

    …and somebody shrank the wheels on the way over?

  • Cragon McBride

    My want for this is very real.

  • Please Stand By

    Time to start up a side hustle. The Redusernab Crapshoot Transport Service.

    • Searching for Crapshoot entries is fine but going out and buying them shouldn’t necessarily be encouraged.

      • Vairship

        So, does it work? And has it run you over yet? Because that seems likely with a not-very-autonomous vehicle connected to you by a tether.

        • It runs intermittently and gets confused easily, so I’m pretty happy with it. There’s no tether, just a small homing transmitter to clip to one’s belt.

  • Spin
