Mustegra – DC2 Integra / 96 Mustang

Mustegra

This build doesn’t start off with a bare shell, a neglected car found under a tree, or even anything remotely standard, it actually starts off with a Honda Integra that had already been featured in a magazine. So how can a build start off with an already complete car? Well, because the guts of the […]

’69 Chevelle / ’99 Nascar chassis

09

What better way to update your classic Chevelle than by sliding a modern Nascar chassis underneath it? Sounds easy, right? Well for some people it is, like Doug, who set out to create his ultimate ’69 Chevelle after never quite getting over the loss of his first one back in the mid 80′s. The fond […]

Nissan GTR x Qashqai/Dualis

10

The Ferrari F40 LM Restoration was always going to be a hard act to follow, so you can imagine my dilemma in trying to find something suitable for the next post. In the end, I didn’t have to look very far, because the build came to me! Henri just emailed me this very interesting project, […]

Datsun 411 / MX5

MX411

We need people like Bob. People with vision, people who have skills and love putting them to good use, people who have the itch to continue creating cool cars, time and time again. You might remember Bob from one of his previous projects that also graced these pages, the MX520. It seems that stuffing Mazda […]

Bagged Porsche Dually

Porsche Dually

Not the kind of title you’d see every day, right? After overwhelming feedback on the Facebook page, I bring you this very unique piece of machinery. What was originally a Porsche 911 is now merely a Stuttgart shell sitting atop a Chevy pickup dually chassis, with a 454 V8 and 4-speed, riding on air. The build […]

Driftworks 2013 ASCAR/AE86

18

After extracting a very impressive amount of track time from their previous drift car, a 2JZ S15, the staff at Driftworks are about to embark on a properly bonkers build for 2013. Their plan is to take the chassis from an ASCAR (British NASCAR equivalent) and drape the body of an AE86 around it. Sounds […]

Toyota Starlet / Volvo 240

Starlet-Volvo

Time for another one of our favourite types of builds, where the mad scientists of the car world decide to take two unsuspecting cars and morph them into a single automotive frankenstein. I’m talking, of course, about chassis swaps. This time it’s a Toyota Starlet having it’s insides removed, while a Volvo 240 donates it’s […]

Saab 96/9-3

Saab9693

It’s time for another chassis-swap build, and this time the donor car and recipient are both Saabs. The builders are combining the classic shell of a Saab 96 with the modern underpinnings of a Saab 9-3, with the goal of creating a little unassuming Swedish track tearer. Thanks to James from Car Throttle for submitting.

VW Beetle / Porsche Boxster

BoxsterBug

I can’t believe it’s been over a year since the last chassis swap build was featured, especially considering it’s one of the most popular and impressive forms of construction. This latest one takes a couple of specimens from the Porsche/VW bloodline and meshes them together, creating a Boxster S chassis and driveline hidden beneath an […]

1959 Ford Thames / BMW 2002

hero

Here’s another build to go with the other chassis-swap projects that have been previously featured. This time it’s a 1959 Ford Thames van being sat on top of a shortened BMW 2002 chassis, built by it’s owner, Mike Pugh. Kindly submitted by Mikael. So, after featuring a handful of projects like this, it begs the […]
