Did you transplant the Prius guts into the Mustang body and S10 frame?

Nope - this is a similar conversion to Bill's Firebird. Check near the end of Bill's thread for the OP's photo of the Mustang body on a lift over his Prius chassis.

I'm sure we'll see more photos. I hope so, anyway.

Here is a picture of the Prius after I started removing the bolt on parts, and another picture after I went at it with a sawzall. I left the drivers seat in because the car still drove perfectly just like that. I used it all chopped up to ride a half mile to my mailbox for a couple weeks

Here is the 1969 mustang when i started chopping out the floors. this car was so rusty from being in the mud i gave up trying to remove any of the nuts and bolts, i just chopped everything out with the saw.

With the mustang body mostly chopped I used my 2 post lift to lower it down on the prius. Like i said I did not measure anything beforehand so it took multiple attempts of lowering the car and then cutting more of the prius away until it started to fit like i wanted it to.

I used the prius fuel door and welded it completely around onto the side of the mustang body, i left the latch intact so it still opens from the lever by the drivers door. I ground the welds down and sprayed some black paint to keep it from rusting. when I start the real body work ill smooth out the section with some body filler.

The second picture is the car with the front end fit up with sheet metal screws to test fitment and to decide how I am going to cover up the lower part of the prius radiator.

This is how the car looks today. The Fenders are bolted on correctly and the hood latch is in and secure. the back of the hood will be held down with hood pins because I cant fit hinges in there. I put a new windshield in and a used rear window from one of my parts cars. I drove it today and managed 55 mpg.

Awesome! Thank you so much!

What remains on your to-do list for this car?

Someone discussed a project like this ten years ago and they said it could not be done (or at least that it shouldn't! ) https://www.stangnet.com/mustang-for...ustang.740511/

I assume the Prius a write-off. What was wrong with it? How did you come by it?
