The idea of mixing vehicle components from different vehicle manufacturers is as old as hot rodding itself. Quite a few car buffs object to this practice (and we are certainly more likely to be fond of a hot rod or custom that has an engine from the same company that originally built the body/chassis than one with an engine from a different company), but the fact of the matter is maintaining OEM homogeneity isn’t always practical. Sometimes the limiting factor is cost. Other times, it’s the kind of performance that can be extracted from an engine, or even making it fit in the first place.
So yeah, inter-marque engine swaps aren’t exactly a rare occurrence. But what about a customized classic that’s not only had a heart-transplant, but has also doesn’t incorporate a single vintage part in its construction? That’s the question posed by the vehicle seen here: The Equus Bass 770.
