The S197 Mustang marks the end of an era for the iconic pony car. With the S550, Ford Motor Company engineers decided to employ a slightly modified Fusion independent rear suspension system, thus putting an end to the live axle rear, a dominant drivetrain detail of first to fifth generation 'Stang.
Today however we’ll not talk about what made the 2005 to 2014 model year ‘Stang great, nor the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang, EcoBoost turbo four-cylinder engine and flat-plane crankshaft Shelby GT350 and all. Today we’ll focus on an abomination fit for Mary Shelley’s Frakenstein if cars were invented back then.

When Frankenstein or The Modern Prometheus was published back in 1818, ICE vehicles and the internal combustion engine were not even around, but if Victor Frankenstein were to be a real person and a petrolhead on top of it all, the so-called MUIA Mustang would have been his personal means of transport for very obvious reasons.

Constructed out of sheets of steel excepting for the door skins, roof and a part of the trunk, this custom contraption employs Lamborghini door hinges, headlights from an older Lotus Elise, as well as taillight clusters lifted from a late 1980s Cadillac DeVille sedan.

Preposterous visual mix, alright, but the finished product beggars belief

Even though there’s no word on what’s under the hood, the owner of the MUIA Mustang tells on that a Vortech V3 Supercharger is there as well, which leads us to believe propulsion is taken care of by a good ol’ Coyote naturally aspirated 5-liter V8 lump.

Appraised at $75,000 yet advertised for $28,500, it may be harsh saying this but a sorry-looking ‘Stang such as this example here isn’t worth but a tenner. How much would you pay for it?
