Saw this on eBay, I think it looks pretty amazing.

That is pretty amazing! I'm not sure about the interior, though - I would rather see it more classic looking, but with some modern bits mixed in. I wonder how much they're actually asking for it?

Is it just me or is it weird that CF.com doesn't allow ebay links? :confused: I don't understand the point of killing the links.

That looks amazing, the interior is horrible but love the overall concept.

I actually like the interior. It's a stock V interior that clashes with the 55 era. I want this car.

Why did he reuse the stock diff :?:

What? That's a stock V interior?! Who knew? :p


Why did he reuse the stock diff?
Or the horrible stock seats? (Although I suppose a '55 wouldn't have provisions for shoulder belts, so using the V seats would kill 2 birds with 1 stone.)

Man, that is really awesome. I think it looks great with the '07 interior!

Idea is a good one but I would of stayed with the stock interior. I own a 50 Chevy with Jaguar suspension and a fuel injected 383. Looks stock inside and out.

I don't want to imagine the hours it took to fab that up! I still think keeping the 55 interior would have been cooler but a solid A+ for effort on it!

Does this mean that there is a 2007 CTS-V somewhere sporting a 1955 Coupe Deville chassis and motor?
