    According to the seller, this is what happens when you mix a 1958 Thunderbird and a 1977 Chevy Blazer 4x4. Just what we need - a 450 horsepower, Chevy powered, four wheel drive, Ford Thunderbird-chero. "If you want to stand out among the crowd in a one of a kind creation that looks great & sounds great, this is it." Hard to argue with that. Also, it's good to know that the 4WD actually still works. Nothing worse that taking your vintage Thunderbird-Chero out on the Rubicon only to get stranded in some mud pit or on a boulder by non-working 4WD.
    And it can also be used as a tow vehicle. "The previous owner had a lawn service so he pulled a trailer with mowers in it." Imagine that.

    T-Bird + truck = Chero

    This site is wonderful for vehicle solutions. Maybe I could use an old big Bird on problem childs crashtimized 2001 suburban I use for towing?

    Looks like something you would see on a farm road just south of Tijuana Mexico back in the late 60's.

    At least if looks good compared to many other customs built:cool:

    Actually think it looks better this way than the original car.

    I will concede it looks well done, however it's not my flavor. I never really got into the "monster cars".

    I like it. I'm normally not into "Tars" but that one looks like it was actually well-done. Must have worked pretty well if the guy used it daily in his business.

    It's awesome and I would drive that every day. I would love to put a 73 body on an SUV, kind of keep it somewhat lower profile and less 'monster'. I need a 4x4 around here and if I could get a Chero to serve that purpose, it would be slap diggity. But that will never happen.

    Rustoration is an under appreciated method.

    I was this close (fingers 1/2" across) from putting my 73 El Camino on a 4X4 Silverado frame back in the late 80's. The car was rear-ended the week before I was going to start tearing it apart. Damn, it was going to be epic, too.

    Mine bothers you....:rolleyes:
