Wait, They Are Making Zimmer’s Out Of Mustangs Now?

Every now and then I catch a tiny glimpse of a classic luxury vehicle whizzing by. I quickly react by whipping my head around, and instantly realize that I have been tricked again by a Zimmer. So… Many… Times… Zimmer. Since their beginnings in the late 1970’s, they have been based on Cadillacs, Buicks, Oldsmobiles, and other large American rear wheel drive cars. Factory body work is removed from the donor vehicle, and the new Zimmer body is grafted on.  Before long, you’ve got a super long, low, “modern” classic.

Fast forward to today, and I notice this eBay Listing.  It’s a relatively new Zimmer that is based on a Mustang GT fastback. What the what?  I can’t say whether I’m impressed or depressed about it, but I know it surprised me.  See for yourself and let me know what you think.  Love it?  Hate it?  Buy it?

  1. I have so much hate for this. Seems pointless to be built upon a GT, as I can’t see an owner caring much about the performance. Or ease of parking, apparently.

    1. To be honest the Fiero-based Quicksilver is not as bad looking and almost works in an ’80s coke dealer way. I can’t stop looking at it.

  2. Years ago a friend had one based on an MG(?) with a Ford V-8 drivline, at least the convertible concept worked better than the ‘stang.

  3. Why?,… This is blasphemous. This “thing” makes no sense..
    It definitely has a way or grabbing your eye and poking it out at the same time.
