    It's too short for my taste. It appears they took the back end of a 4 door for the bed, so just about the whole section that the rear door fit is gone. I agree with Frank in that this would make a front heavy car REALLY front heavy!! How would it handle on sudden braking? I wouldn't want to be the one to find out.

    It's cute, but the wing would have to go.

    I would paint it baby-blue, throw the wing away, put a cover on the bed & a full-wide rear end on so it didn't have to look as it need a toilet badly... then I would DRIVE it!

    That's not "an exposed plastic gas tank". It's a racing fuel cell, and it's safer than a stock tank.

    interesting custom Champ (?)

    Now, most of you know by now that I'm generally not fond of 'customs' that butcher a car. In this case though, the customizer has done a superb job.

    There are many more pics on the site referenced above. I'm not crazy about the exposed, plastic gas tank... Not to mention the Mopar powertrain. Other than that, a superb job! If it looks as good in person as in the pics, likely he will get his twelve grand asking price.
Working...
