Monterey Car Week is currently underway and we have a feeling heads would be exploding if this eBay listing made the rounds. You see, Montery Car Week, Pebble Beach, whatever you’d like to call it is all about the finest, most pristine automobiles. This Ferrari 250 GTE is none of those.
In fact, it’s had its Italian heart ripped out and replaced with a Chevrolet small-block V8 engine—the same mill found in thousands of Chevrolet Camaros. According to the seller, $150,000 has gone into the build, and strangely, he or she insisted some components remain original to the Ferrari. For example, the seller went to great lengths to source a legitimate Ferrari windshield and rubber seals.
Elsewhere, it’s a mashup of ‘Murica. The nine-inch rear end comes from Ford and the six-speed manual transmission has been taken from a Dodge Viper. Red, white, blue, and green run through this Ferrari’s veins. Oh, and just to complicate it further, this paint is from Mitsubishi.
The auction ends today with a current price of $120,000. Is this an amazing machine? Or totally crazy on the builder’s behalf?
