Apparently, Ford decided that it would use the car for other internal events
instead of immediately sending it out on the Caravan tour because of its
advanced model idea. The headlights were lightly reworked, as were the
taillights, with a new, lower rocker molding and custom five-spoke Rader
aluminum wheels. The rear window was trimmed down like the Fairlane

panel over the driver's compartment with ...

There have even been a few old hot rods or custom cars found in such places.
But I think I could count the instances of such actual hot rod barn finds on two
