Conversion: Chevy Optera Turned ’67 Shelby GT500 Ford Mustang

Conversions are quite common and usually turn out pretty interesting. When I say interesting, that can go either way in regards to good or bad. However, this one is just plain interesting. Bid Daddy Custom’s created this conversion consisting of a Chevy Optera mashed up with a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. Yep, the ’67 “Eleanor” version from Gone in 60 Seconds.

This Indian Chevy-Stang mash up used the “Reasonably Priced Car” from Top Gear and created this domestic concoction. The Optera is a family-like sedan consisting of four doors, well two of those doors were cut out to make it look like a ‘Stang fastback. Changes to the body are major, even the details to the mirrors and door handles have been changed. Lighting equipment is all old-school classic Mustang. Even the ‘Stang bumpers have been sized smaller to fit the Chevy sedan seamlessly.

Although a bit ridiculous, the work isn’t bad. It’s a bit off proportion which makes it fun to look at. It’s definitely original since a classic GT500 replica would be just, well, that. Props to the conversion into making your daily driver sedan into something a bit more fun, but it’s still rather odd. The enthusiast would probably take a gander into figuring out what is off about it.

The heart of the beast is likely the Chevy Optera stock parts. That means this bad ‘Stang has a 1.8-L packed under the hood with about 120 sick little horsies.

Can’t wait to see what conversion is in store for us next!

  20. Manuel Rodríguez (.) ha afirmado que es la primera huelga general convocada por todos los sindicatos de la mesa sectorial en la historia de la Comunidad de Madrid. La convocatoria de huelga coincide con la de la Asociación de Facultativos Especialistas de Madrid (Afem), cuya asamblea votó la semana pasada a favor de un paro indefinido a partir del 26 de noviembre, de lunes a jueves. CSIT extiende así la convocatoria de huelga para finales de noviembre lanzada el pasado miércoles por los médicos de Madrid , representados en la Asociación de Facultativos Especialistas de Madrid ( Afem ). No se puede amar a España ( a Catalunya) sin estar dedicado al bienestar de la población que constituye tal país (España y/ Catalunya).
