I have been curious what a 240 would look like with the front arches cut from some fenders and welded into the rear at the same height as the stock fenders. Basically matched arches.

It looks like Robbie Tice's car. I think it's for sale still.

I don’t think you can “match” them perfectly as the rear would have to start the flare pretty much at or just below the belt line. Maybe possible with the 2 door; then I don’t think it would be more better than the charcoal 242 previously cited. In the case of the Mann 245/164 I referenced, I think he shows well that you can even do it to a 4 door. It’s still lower that the front arches, but an improvement none the less.

Pics of said Mannes 245/164 and the lint to the thread on T-bricks.

Bamses 242 has that mod.

Whoa. Serious drugs were involved. 265C has a bit of a hearse vibe to it, no?

Jack 05-07-2020 05:46 PM

Oh jezz
Perfect example of “Just because you can doesn’t mean you should”

2turbotoys 05-07-2020 10:11 PM

They killed a lot of fake cows for the roof. But change the bumpers to something a bit smaller, it's not so bad.

Råda 05-08-2020 02:56 AM

It looks way better than the 262c imo

Old Iron 05-15-2020 10:08 PM

It’s actually not bad. I would love if it was a shooting brake.
