Let’s start with the exterior. The car’s been given a serious makeover, with the hood and front fenders elongated, the top chopped by 3 inches, and the rear doors closed off. The result? A sleek, aggressive profile that’s finished in a striking orange and black paint scheme. But the modifications don’t stop there. This PT Cruiser now sits on a custom tubular frame, with headlights from a ’53 Chevy and taillights from a ’59 Cadillac adding to its retro charm.

Underneath, it’s all about performance. A Mustang II-style front suspension and four-link rear setup keep the car planted, while Viking adjustable coil-overs ensure a smooth ride. Four-wheel disc brakes provide plenty of stopping power, and the Center Line wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson tires complete the look.

Inside, the custom touches continue. Black vinyl seats with orange inserts complement the exterior color scheme, while a Lokar emergency brake handle and B&M Mega Shifter add a touch of vintage flair. An aftermarket audio system pumps out the tunes, and a lift-up panel in the cargo area provides easy access to the fuel tank and rear suspension.

But what sets this PT Cruiser apart is what’s under the hood. Powering this beast is a modified Ford 5.0-liter (302 cubic-inch) V8, courtesy of ATK Engines. With an Edelbrock intake manifold, QFT carburetor, high-performance camshaft, and aluminum cylinder heads, this engine means business. Paired with a Ford AOD four-speed automatic transmission and a 9-inch rear end with 4.11:1 gears, this PT Cruiser packs a serious punch.
