Chrysler PT Cruiser Packing Viper V10 for Sale on eBay

Regardless if people like the styling or hate it for the silly and impractical body, the Chrysler PT Cruiser was a resounding market success. As a result, many fans of the strange pickup ended up wanting to customize it in order to stand out.

The PT Cruiser subsequently ended up being extensively modified by different tuners. But the ultimate mod that can be made to a vehicle wearing the Chrysler badge can only the a heart transplant in the form of a big engine. We’re not talking about some retro-style V8, but a fully fearsome Dodge Viper V10 that went under the bonnet of the PT Cruiser.

This particular vehicles is one of only two ever built back in 2000. It sports a custom built tube chassis. The Viper in pickup clothing also sports the Viper 500 HP V-10 Engine, Viper 6 speed transmission, Viper rear suspension and Viper steering rack.

A custom side pipe configuration has been added, so it should be as loud as it is ridiculous. This vehicle was built as a show car and does not have a title, but the owner has all the legal documents to apply for a builder title just like you would do if you built a street rod or kit car.

The seller says that only two examples were built and that this one “has never been driven on the street and has only been used as a show car, there are some minor things that need completing like putting in a set of analog gauges, and some minor wiring tweaks”, adding that “it does start and run great”.

If you’re interested, we’d remind you that the eBay auction ends in 3 days and bidding is currently at $11,800.
