In other parts of the world modifying cars is difficult due to strict requirements regarding the aftermarket parts that can be installed onto a vehicle, as well as mandatory state-sanctioned safety inspections. While there are certain states in the U.S. that have restrictions on what you’re allowed to do with your car, in Michigan there are really no rules when it comes to anything automotive. While you could say that is a result of the state putting the world on wheels, we just think that it’s awesome. The lack of oversight allows for some rather insane cars to exist in the Great Lake state, like this half Ford Mustang half Ford Bronco SUV for sale on Facebook Marketplace.
This monstrosity of a Ford combines two of the brands most iconic models: a 1965 Mustang fastback and a first-generation Ford Bronco from 1973. Clean examples of both of these models are worth some money nowadays, which makes this build even more peculiar. The off-roader’s chassis has been donated to serve as the base for the project, while the toned lines of the muscle car’s body bring the style.
We mentioned that Michigan is an interesting place for cars, but it is also one of the worst states for car-eating rust. This home-brew muscle car SUV is a great example of this car cancer, evident by the number of “speed holes” that now pepper the car’s flanks. Both of the vehicles that were used in this build have seen certainly seen better days. On the bright side, this vehicle does come with a clean Ford Mustang fastback title and tags. The seller states that the motor is a 302 cubic-inch Ford V8, mated to a unique Bronco C-4 transmission.
All you need to make this Ford Mustang-Ford Bronco Frankenstein monster yours is $4,000, plus the countless amount of money you’d need to make this thing road worthy. That is of course unless you live in Michigan, where nobody would think twice about seeing a car as seasoned as this one on the road. But Halloween is in two days, and this is Bronco dressed as a Mustang is the perfect vehicle for the occasion.
