One-Off Roadster is a Morgan on a Budget

For as long as there have been automobiles, there have also been people in sheds, barns, and garages creating their own home-built cars. More often than not, these homemade cars turn out to be a bit sketchy and a bit lacking in the styling department. This appears to do neither of those things.  This one-off roadster is currently up for sale on eBay, and while there are a few discrepancies as to its exact specifications, it can be had for significantly less money than a similarly styled and hand-built Morgan. What do you think Interwebs, is it worth it?

The body is all steel, while the undercarriage has been taken from a 1935 Cord, along with its suspension, brakes and parts of its running gear. The seller even lists a build video of the car, taken by the car's designer, which causes some of the details to get a bit murky. That video suggests the car was built atop a custom frame and utilizes a 4.1-liter Chevrolet inline six mated to a Powerglide transmission. Any engine spotters want to tell us which six-cylinder it really is? What isn't up for debate is the car's steel body, which was hand-formed piece by piece, all aside from the fenders, which reportedly came from a 1938 Ford. The car's original design featured a pin-up bomber girl hand painted on the rear deck. We wish it were still there.

All things considered, you certainly won't see another one of these cruising around your neighborhood.
