Just came across this Ebay auction.

Very strange combination, I thought it may interest Rick and a few others on this forum.

If you don't look at it form the side or open the doors and look inside it's kind of cool. Really dark tint FTW.

The exterior was very well done. Open the door and it's...........bleh!

They cheaped out by not adding suicide doors. Not my cup of tea (you can easily tell the source car from the side), but it's not horrible...

I once saw a replica Rolls-Royce done on a Volvo sedan that was kind of neat and like this one not terrible. The Rolls replica I saw was in a parking lot in Beverly Hills back in the 1980's. I don't really see the point of a replica Rolls/Bentley when used ones are rather cheap and plentiful, thus not justifying the expense of a replica. Now a replica Cobra I can understand.

That is pretty bad. The rear end is COMPLETELY out of scale and the decklid has a gap the size of the grand canyon between it and the fenders.

To make matters worse, I could tell it was a Town Car kit from the sideview alone, without even looking at the description. Blech.

Sorry, this looks like something Geely would build.

Those of us who know our cars would be able to tell that it was a modified Town Car. I think most other people would simply look at it and try to figure out why it doesn't look quite right. I don't know what's worse about it, the proportions of the rear roof line or the Bentley emblem they stuck on the air bag cover...
