It may be called the Mirage, but the vehicle in the photos above is very real.
This El Camino-style Cadillac was created by California car conversion outfit Traditional Coach Works.
Based on the 1975-1976 Cadillac Coupe deVille, just 204 of the hybrids were built, featuring a 2-seat cabin and a bed large enough to fit an 8’x4’ sheet of plywood – the yardstick, if you will, of a true pickup.
This fully-restored ’76 model has a 500 cubic-inch V8, 3-speed transmission and is set to cross the block at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Las Vegas today.
Where better than the desert to pick up a Mirage?
