Well, here’s a new one. In a world where front end and rear end conversions are long gone – thankfully – the Internet has found a new gem that even the most creative car builders might scratch their heads on. Now before you think we’re completely hating on this build, we have to commend the overall craftsmanship that was involved in putting it together. The front end and rear end conversion are actually nicely done, flowing well with the overall body lines of the BMW E23 7-Series. Of course these photos aren’t exactly the highest of quality, but the fit and finish seem pretty impressive.

What we have here is a rare first-generation BMW 7-Series sporting a Shelby Mustang front end and a rear end conversion sporting the unmistakable look of an R34 Skyline GT-R. Is it something we’d ever do? Probably not. But when it comes to a cookie-cutter world, we have to commend those that think outside the box. Even if it’s way outside the box.
