After all, one doesn't think about the mix between a Plymouth 'Cuda and a retro Formula One car all that often. Even though we should do that, and here's a very good reasons for that - when such contraptions find their way into the real world, we end up with unique four-wheeled creatures that are nothing short of fascinating, while admittedly offending purists.
We brought you the story of such a drivable mashup last fall, when talking about a 1930s Ford Model A Hot Rod that uses Formula One aerodynamic elements.
The project took over six months to complete and saw a 1930s five-window Model A receiving plenty of tech goodies from a Honda S2000. Figuring out which one of the two (the real project and the digital creations above) is more offending is not simple, even though we'd bet on the Honda-powered Hot Rod.
Oh yes, we forgot to mention the Ford in question is now motivated by an S2K-sourced heart that can rev all the way to 9,000 rpm. The move demanded a rev counter that would be up for the job, which is why the S2000's digital instrument cluster found its way inside the senior Ford. You can read more about that build by following this link.
Returning to our mix of 1s and 0s, this does seem to follow a well-established principle - Mopar or no car.
