Believe it or not, Michigan-based designer Joey Ruiter’s “Consumer Car” is actually based on a 1993 Ford Festiva GL chassis and not something built for a science fiction movie. Despite how it looks, this vehicle is road-legal in some states with required lighting, passenger restraints, and a rear-mounted license plate frame. It’s powered by a Mazda-sourced “B3” 1.3L inline-4 engine producing 63 hp and 73 lb-ft of torque, pared with a 5-speed manual transmission.
Features include a low, trapezoidal shape, a full-width front mirror, hand-formed steel bodywork, Carnegie Xorel bio-based indoor / outdoor fabric covering the main body, a forward-hinged nose for easy engine access, a completely open cockpit, a Joes Racing Products aluminum steering wheel, and an ultra minimalist design.
