Bespoke Frankencar Is Made From 28 Different Cars, Costs $25,000

Out of all the weird stuff that tends to surface online, this hand made GMC-powered vehicle might actually take the cake.

According to the Craigslist ad, no fewer than 28 different car parts went into building this contraption on wheels, and it’s even been featured in local car shows in Bay City, Michigan, where it’s been very popular with the visitors. So what are we calling it? In order to figure that out, let’s run though the entire list of parts that went into this part truck, part coupe, part classic:

– ’85 GMC 350 Truck Motor
– Chevy Caprice Electric Windows
– ’72 Pontiac Rear Axle
– ’64 Thunderbird Slide Away Steering Wheel
– ’72 Pinto Doors
– ’39 Chevy Hood
– ’39 Chevy Grill
– ’39 Chevy Fenders
– ’64 Thunderbird Interior
– ’72 Pinto Fuel Tank
– ’84 Firebird Seats
– ’82 Chevy Transmission
– ’82 Cadillac Front Brakes
– ’82 Cadillac Suspension
– ’61 Cadillac Rear Fins
– ’85 Cadillac Seville Trunk Lid
– ’73 Ford Sunroof
– ’85 Olds 98 Electrical System
– ’85 Olds Electric Dash
– Ltd. Headlights
– Ltd. Front Turn Signal
– Ltd. Rear Brake Light on Roof
– ’72 Javelin Tail Lights
– ’58 Buick Front Bumper
– ’58 Buick Rear Back Up Lights
– ’32 Chevy Rear Bumper
– ’92 Chevy Electric Cooling Fan
– Keyless Entry between the seats

Basically, it features a little bit of everything. If we go by most influential parts, we would have to call it either a Chevy or a Caddy – that ’85 Seville trunk lid is pretty impossible to miss. Apparently, the owner has a title for a 1939 Chevy, although it will require registration as a custom vehicle.

Another thing it requires would be a new set of shocks, despite being driven no more than 50 miles (80 km).

H/T to Mike!
