Default Hatch never seen....

Hi,

attached there is a picture a German PT enthousiast made on the Autobahn. It shows a PT from the Netherlands with a strange rear window/trunk lid I have never seen before.

Did you ever see this modification? To me it looks like OEM, but who knows?

Georg

Welcome to the Forum Georg!! That is a different hatch window, I have been to a few PT car shows and have never seen one like that, it sure is a eye catcher.

Hi all,

I was searching the web too - nothing like that. In the German forum (Cruiserfans.de | Startseite) they first thought of a PT Cargo... but now they are sure it's a DIY modification.

I like it!

Georg

To each, his own. I don't like it. Gives the Pt a really odd shape.

I like it...It's very unique, and I've never seen or heard of it before. I wouldn't want it on my PT, but I'd admire it if I saw it pass!

Talking Re: Hatch never seen....

Saw that post on the e-Bay PT today! Makes me think that the PT backed up into Sponge Bob Square Pants...and he's stuck on the rear end!
(Probably was a mod necessitated by the invention of the long "Belly Putter" in your golf bag!)

Default Re: Hatch never seen.... dissolved!

Hi, here I am again....

After further searching on google of the Netherlands i found out this type of extended rear window was sold between 2003 and 2005 as "PT Cruiser Van" (at least) in the Netherlands! Here in Austria and even in Germany (which is a lot closer to NL) it's is allthough unknown.

Here are some links to pictures of the Van:

with rear seats:

without rear seats and a separation between cargo and passenger area (Hardcore!!):

Foto's van deze CHRYSLER PT CRUISER 2.2CRD CLASSIC VAN occasion op AutoTrack.nl

...and with painted rear side windows:

Foto's van deze CHRYSLER PT CRUISER 2.0CRD LIMITED VAN occasion op AutoTrack.nl

...maybe one day we will discover a OEM PT with a real trunk or a 7-seater only sold in a minor district of .... Phantasia
