What is a 1986 Lands Van $1.25 MM Prototype, #1 of 2 EVER built! ?????

Off-Topic Members,

I was scanning Ebay and saw this 1986 Lands Van $1.25 MM Prototype, #1 of 2 EVER built.

I never heard of this vehicle, has anyone else here heard of it.

If this protype never came into production why would someone want to purchase it ?

THE SELLER states that it has over 1 million dollars
invested in it.

Do you believe it ?

This sounds strange.

Yeah, I heard of it. That car is for real. I think you and guage should invest in buying it together. This will be a great addition to your fleet and it will be a great filler for guage so he can carry some real good and intelligent conversations with us. I can't wait for you guys to start the mods on that puppy!

It certainly looks like a prototype...

That was designed by a committee, each member of which was working on a different thing.

Big, heavy, positively ugly from some angles, with a hideous dash and a 302 V-8. I wonder if it will out-accelerate a Rabbit Diesel...
