A Canadian company called Conquest Vehicles, which manufactures "ultra-luxurious, fully armored, handcrafted sport utility vehicles" is producing the military-inspired Knight XV seen here. The massive, nearly ten-ton vehicle was built from the ground up using high-grade steel, "ballistic aluminum" and other fun compounds; the doors are so heavy they require special hinges to support the extra weight.
We don’t know much about this incredible 1949 Chevy-turned-bookmobile. We did find out that the owner acquired the vehicle in 1995 and also owns a 1966 Rolls Royce previously owned by Liberace. Clearly this quirky gentleman has a unique style, but we’re happiest to know he loves books.
