We've come to expect varying levels of insanity from eBay Motors. The site is like a magnet for the one-off, the strange and the bizarre, which is part of why we love it. This machine is no different. Based on an unspecified 1974 Lincoln, the vehicle has received a full cosmetic makeover in the image of a Bugatti. Which Bugatti? The owner isn't saying, but there's no mistaking what lurks behind that big hoop grille as a French creation.

Now, we typically cringe at the over-application of fiberglass in any custom vehicle, which is part of what makes this Bug/Lincoln hybrid unique. The owner says that each body panel is crafted from aluminum, meaning that there are no seams, cracks, or, for that matter, rust. While not to our tastes, this creative rebody seems to have been done to a significantly higher standard than most of these sorts of misadventures. Either way, it isn't immediately clear if this is a one-off, or if someone built a small run of these things.

Inside, the interior has been given the mohair treatment along with a set of "European gauges." The castrated 460-cubic-inch V8 from the Lincoln is still tucked behind the headlights, but the engine is now concealed by a butterfly hood which should make working on the lump even more difficult than before. Wonders never cease. Head over to eBay Motors for a closer look. As of the time of writing, the auction carries a Buy It Now price of $39,950, but prospective buyers are welcome to make an offer.

      Does the CHIPS robot on the dolly come with it?

      It's not my thing, but I kinda like how the profile predicts the Seville.

      If I hit the lottery tomorrow, this is the very first thing I'm gonna buy.

      There is no doubt that the 1970s were the pinnacle of understated style, taste, and fashion. I suppose all of those people out there putting dollar store "fender vents" on their Dodge Magnums and Grand Prix owe this trail blazer some long overdue thanks and respect..

      Wow, that thing is awful! Might be a great car to destroy in a rap video though.

      I think this is great. It'd be even better if some crazy powerplant were stuffed under the hood though... and the interior is blegh.
