If you're asking yourself why anyone would want to graft a Volvo 240DL's wagon roof and hatch onto a Ford Mustang, let us know when you find out. We're asking ourselves the same question.

Some people put tiny wheels on a car and then make them bounce around with hydraulics. There is an a$$ for every seat I guess.

oh good lord. What an abomination. That's a car even Thomas would have trouble selling.

I like it, different and well done. Have seen this already on quite a few FB pages.

I like it too....sort of a late 50's early 60's sedan delivery style car

Definitely unique.....but I kinda like it. Think of the possible stereo system you'd have room for! Lol

Reminds me of the old nomads

Has me wondering whether it was an already mostly done up stang with damage to the roof and the volvo top was the best available fit (aside from another stang top, you know aiming for something different). Or whether they actually sat down planning a full reno job and decided to chop the stang and deliberately chose that top. Looking at the money that has clearly been put into it i would assume its the second.

Yeah and.....

under the hood lives a beastly 514-cubic-inch carbureted V-8 engine

Nice craftsmanship, but I don't care for wagons personally and IMO, it's a shame he didn't just do the Mustang. Crying shame.

It's like a fast getaway car for a child molester

Yeah i have to agree, not my thing but it has been well done. Suppose the thump that it puts out would soon make you forget your cruising in a wagon that strangely seems to resemble a hearse.

That's what I was talking about. Thing would definitely pick them up and put them down in a fat hurry. :)

Makes sense to me. When I was a kid I really wanted to graft the front end of a late-60s Corvette Stingray to a Volkswagen Beetle. Make the seam right where the end of the windshield meets the hood. I use to draw what I thought it would turn out like in the margins of all my textbooks!
