I can see where changing the wheel base makes the rear overhang look better. Very smooth blending of the two bodies. Almost wonder why Ford didn't think if this when they went to the 4 seater Bird. Great looking color.

I've seen this body style in resin on Ebay and like them, but thought about building one like you have.

I like the rear wheels moved back and the color you chose.

It's a nice looking conversion, and very believable👍
