There are crazy build ideas and there are totally impractical build ideas. Fun to dream but if you can't do the work yourself and be prepared to take years to do it then even the most basic build is a dream. It isn't even remotely close to being as simple as dropping a body on a chassis. To pay somebody to do it would likely run $80K at a minimum. Just watch Counting Cars and see what there very basic restomods cost. I have seen their finished products in person and even though they look pretty on the outside and have modern engines they often don't even touch half the car.

Yea, and if you want to see a realistic depiction of what it costs to do it right watch some of the episdodes of Fantomworks where they go over the bill with the owners at the end. They don't talk dollars typically for labor but they'll give you the shop hours and the parts cost.

Based on what goes on on the shows FantomWorks is one of the few shops I would let touch my "dream" and I'm pretty sure I can't afford them.

How can you tell if someone is a pilot? They will be the one telling everyone they are a pilot.

1956 AC

A new body on an old frame, three years and way too many hours.
Take a 10,000 dollar car spend 5000 in parts and too many evenings and end up with an 18,000 dollar car. Not a good return.

Those are more just engine swaps (except the VW) and although costly are not in the same realm as a whole body to chassis swap.

I once owned a 64 Econoline that the previous owner had crammed a 351 into that little doghouse between the seats. Not even an extensive swap and it still took him 2 years and a pile of cash.

Imagine fitting this:

And it clearly took time away from playing frisbee with that dog over yonder. Definitely not worth it!
