Wow, that is just nuts! I've never seen someone take the entire lower half of the car for a transplant like this. It looks awesome. Did Monster sponser the build?

AWESOME!

That's awsome.I've wondered weather you could find a close enough platform for a build like that.I think a 63 split window on a modern Z06 would be sweet.The platforms would'nt match but it would be sweet in a more race-drift car.Very sweet build though! Thinking out of the box for sure!

the cars were close ...but wasnt as easy as we thought .
the gto is huge compared to the camaro .. we had to shorten the gto wheel base 3 inches , take 6" out of the trunk ,4" out of the front and almost a foot in the width of the floor .track width is 2 inchs wider ..where the dash ends up is the main thing to deal with if your going to attemp something like this..
i really want to do any 60's mustang on a super snake, or 63-64 impala on a 2000-ish impala... i really believe this shit here will be the future of hot rods ..
you will be able to take your early muscle car/rat rod to a dealership and have them hook up computers to your car if your check engine light comes on..or just hop in and drive across the country without any worrys in a comfortable car ...im ramblin too much sorry , hahahaha

That is absolutely bad ass! The stance and color is slick as hell.
Amazing work and I agree that there is likely more of this kind of work on the horizon. Something to be said for being able to get in an "old" car and crank it over without always having to worry if it will make it down the road.

Again, top notch work and awesome end result!
