No, not the green cars.

What's the weirdest combination you've seen that was graphed from several bodies and or styles?

My favorite was one we have locally which was an early Falcon based Ranchero, the guy put an early Mustang front clip and worked the body lines out to look factory. He also changed the tail lights to Mustang.
This thing really did look like a factory built Mustang Ranchero.

There was a corvair running around Houston that had a body made of WOOD. It looked like a rolling floor. It was shown every thanksgiving during the autorama in the astro dome.

Hybrids

A 65-66 Pontiac El Camino that was done locally and looked like it came from GM that way, and a Studemino over in South Dakota, bullet nose front end on a late El Camino , Stude rear fenders, looked pretty good.

This car was at a recent swap meet.

I beleive it was a 78 ElCamino with a Stude front. Was pretty well put together too.

This pic was borrowed form a thread on Ozrodders so I dont have any more pics of this car.

I saw a pic in a rod magazine of a 1986 T-bird with the front and rear from a '53 or so Studebaker. Looked real good.

I saw another article about a Fairmont Futura with a mid-size LTD front clip. A better idea Ford missed out on.

Wow, I really don't like that silver Mustang and Shelby mix. I love both cars, but they do not mix well to my liking. I guess it's not that unusual because I've had people tell me they've seen one and weren't that amused, but I once saw a VW Bug on a K-5 Blazer 4x4 frame that was interesting. Oh, and I also saw a 1998 Dodge Neon on a Dodge Dakota chassis with a 550hp 360ci that was pretty neat. I guess those are the only hybrids that I've seen in person to my knowledge.
