    Put some wings on it and it could become Thunderbird 6! Since Jeff Tracy would be all out of sons to fly it, perhaps Brains or TinTin Kyrano could be at the helm.

        Also, that is one bold asking price!

          I never seen a"kustom" or lead sled that did anything for me......even chopped Mercs. And chopping up a reasonably good handling car to make a straight axle rod is just plain dangerous if you ever want to drive it on the street! Just my humble little insignificant opinion.

            What makes you think it has a straight axle? I would agree it is not a "good handling car", but I don't think that was the builder's goal.

              I really had to gasp when I first started going through the pictures from left to right. But, by the time I got to the last picture, I was sold. I like it. Very wierd, but Kooool.

                If that were sitting in my driveway I'd pay someone $12000 just to have it hauled away!

                  I'll give the guy credit: it was coming along. Wonder why there's no interior shots, or if there is one?

                    I'm sorry, I should have written that to read OR chopping up a reasonably good handling car..... not AND. I am not a fan of straight tube axles or the early 60's gasser look.
                    You all can be, that is fine. I won't judge. (well maybe just a tiny bit)

                      Different,

                      To each his own I recon.

                      Not really for me but if I saw it at a car show I'm sure I would give it a look.

                            I have seen worse grill treatments. A farmer could use the car's rear bumper for plowing two furrows for potato planting.
