I am having a very difficult time converting my 2014 GT into a VW New Beetle. Do not try it.

My 2014 GT looks great as pickup truck.

A couple places sell kits. I'd try googling it and seeing what you get. Best of luck.

Your best bet would be to call autonation ford, you tell exactly what's all needed to change your front end. Shelby kit is not a direct bolt on for our GTs, you need a bunch of other little things to complete this swap. You would need a new set of fogs too! Oh and keep aside 1000 bucks for paint.

Damn, why do this? I like my 2014 front-end. $2000 goes a long way, and, as was stated. Paint costs. That's almost half a blower.

For 2000 bucks I was like dang this is steal of a deal!! Only to find out it doesn't come with a hood. So add another thousand to it, and we are starring at about $4500-5000 bucks after all set and done.

Yea, I think I'd rather spend that a different way. Seems like the inverse of putting a tit on a bull.

Yes it is pretty expensive but you can use your 13-14 hood lines up fine with the GT500 bumper. It would cost around $500 for a decent body shop to paint match the bumper.

Yeah that's right on. But if one were to do a full gt500 front end, then a hood would be nice add on. JMO

Shelby Conversion

Don't do it, you will be spending money to lower the value of a great looking 2014 GT. I had an 08 Bullitt and was thinking the same thing. Bottom line, sold it and bought a used Shelby. Best idea yet.
