Badass or blasphemy? 1969 BMW 2002 widebody on tube chassis with a Mustang GT Coyote 5.0 swap
Some people are going to think this is awesome and some are going to think it is a pile of junk. The owner took the classic BMW 2002 body, put it on a cobra tube chassis, gave it custom fiberglass widebody work, and swapped in a domestic V8 out of a Mustang 5.0. You might be wondering how the motor fits and it, well, kind of doees. The dash had to be pushed back to accommodate the motor. The car just seems like a Frankenstein build.
Personally, I'd lean toward saying it's a mess. It is a cool idea and likely fast but this no longer a BMW other than it resembles one slightly (and is registered as one). There are a myriad of BMW motors that can be swapped in far more easily than this and that work well with the stock chassis. Regardless, just as the owner said, you either love it or you hate it.
It's for sale, but who is going to pick it up? Pictures and video below.
