This chopped, shortened, and wide-bodied 1949 Ford was swapped on top of a 2008 BMW E92 335i N54 twin-turbo car.

Over the past few decades, John has built some pretty crazy rides and this one may be the craziest! and after spending the last 15 years working on his Real Estate business, raising a family, and helping plant a start-up church, he was ready to embark, along with his son and a group of friends, on a new project. He tells us…

“This is not just any old project, we are going to attempt the first-ever 1949 Ford Shoebox chassis swap to a 2008 BMW 335i.

Keep in mind that we don’t do this for a living and the budget is very limited. Will we make the deadline for SEMA? What kind of challenges will we run into along the way?”
