I built this for my wifes birthday 18 years ago.
It is an actual love seat or couch, made from the trunk of a 1949 Chevy,
She saw something like this on T.V. and told me she wanted one.
On her B-day, her wish was my command!
However.... What I showed her was a rusty old rear clip from a car I had just found in a junk yard.

The only photo at this time has a guitar collection on it from a photo shoot for another deal.
The trunk closes and the tail lights light up and there is a stereo mounted in it with speakers in the package tray.
It is pearl white with a "heart beat of america" licence plate on it.

1" square tubing and some 70's model hood adjuster bolts for the feet.
The rest of the project was body shop skills.
